These interview tips will help even the most inexperienced interviewees to shine.
Often we meet candidates who attend client interviews at our offices but they lack certain things that would otherwise help them excel and acquire the job of their dreams. Our Talent Acquisition team from Recours Four Kenya Consultants Limited give their best tips on how to ace an interview:
- Tell Your Story
This is the only opportunity that you will get to sell yourself. Potential employers need to be inspired by your accomplishments. At point of introduction speak about your strengths, previous accomplishments and connect them to the current role that you are interviewing for.
- Market Yourself
A company needs to believe that they’re hiring the right person, so be sure to give them a good reason why you are the person for the job, and let them know what value you would bring to the company. Always remember that the interview is to know whether you would fit into their company, give them sufficient reasons to believe that you are perfect for the opportunity.
A smile can be a powerful tool at a first meeting. Even if you feel nervous, make sure you smile because it will make you come across as friendly and relaxed.
- Ask Questions at the end of the interview.
Never say you have nothing to ask at the interview. It makes you seem disinterested so always have a few questions to ask your interviewer planned in advance, ask questions related to the company, its expansion plans, training opportunities, working hours and anything else related to the position. It is also important to remember that you need to ask about when to expect to hear from them after the interview.
- End positively.
When the interview is approaching an end try to conclude on a positive note. This could be as simple as saying something like, “I look forward to hearing from you.” Be sure to shake hands in a professional manner and politely let yourself out of the room wishing the panel a wonderful day and remember to thank them for the opportunity.
