5 Interview Keywords That Can Help You Land the Job

Interviews can sometimes be hectic and stressful especially if you have gone for a couple of them and did not get the job. Most people do not realise that how you answer interview questions and the words that you use could either land you that job or not. An interview is like a competition. You have to sell yourself as effectively as possible.

So what are the key words to use to get you that job?

  1. Be Passionate

Be certain to convey your passion on the position at hand.. The last thing an employer wants is someone who is just working to “make a living” or “try something out.”

  1. Be an Asset

A job is not the same as an internship. An employer does not want to hear that you are applying to “learn.” You had better bring a unique skill set or perspective to the table that is going to greatly benefit the employer. Make sure to express why you are an asset to the company.

  1. Communicate

What’s the No. 1 quality an employer looks for in an employee? Answer: The ability to communicate effectively. The ability to articulate your ideas and perspective to both fellow members of your company and the public is extremely valuable.

  1. Quick to learn

There’s no hiding the fact that you’re a recent college graduate. However, while you may not have the years of experience, you only need to be shown a task once to be able to do it well and, ultimately, come to master it.

  1. Be Practical

Most recent college grads are excited to jump into their first position full-force. While that excitement can be viewed as an asset, it can also turn off employers. A young person’s excitement is often associated with the potential to “act prior to thinking things through.” Therefore, it’s important to reassure the interviewer that you will approach each assignment with practicality, logic and reason.
