Didn’t you notice that many of your job interviews were all failures? Well, a lot of fresh graduates may have experience being turned down by many companies but didn’t realize what went wrong in the process. They’ve prepared a very professional CV Resume, wrote their professional experiences in their past jobs, yet they were denied. They may ask themselves what happened to the best CV sample they’ve made as their guide and other steps on writing a cover letter.
Here are basic steps how to handle the interview with confidence. This would at least add information to you if you are the kind of professional who is denied many times over.
• Take a refresher course – If you really want to stand out during interview you can take a short refresher course about matters you think possibly included in the scheduled interview. For instance, you are applying as a Math teacher you should study more about mathematics. It maybe possible that part of the introduction interview would touch on your expertise in math.
• Do a research of the school – Since you are applying as a Math teacher in a certain school you should make a research about the school you are interested in. The interviewer may ask what you can say about their school and what would you answer if you don’t know even a little knowledge. The knowledge about their school is very important so that when you answer you do it with confidence with straight answers and no more thinking moment what to answer. Being smart during interview time is really a plus factor to impress your interviewer. The interviewer would think that you’re very articulate because you answer questions very spontaneously much more if you talk in the English. Many employers would admire applicants who speak English.
• Get yourself a proper hygiene – Think that the interview would be your last chance and failing it would mean making you a hopeless candidate again and again. Since this is your final moment and the last step for your job hunting activity, prepare for it as smart as you can possibly be. Get fresh by taking a shower for you to take a proper hygiene and look more comfortable and fitting for the interview. This would help you feel better and more healthy and energetic to take the interview. Remember, your purpose is to stand out. You have finished submitting your Resume and other requirements and this is now the final chapter.
