When you have an interview, you are overstressed and you want to be like somebody else. Everyone knows that it is not a good idea. This human’s behaviour is quite strange and artificial. How to face these problems?
Would you like to speak to yourself? Find your own strengths and weaknesses with these simple questions so that you will enter your next job interview so confident and ready!
The first step is taking a deep breath. Yes, it seems like an obvious tip but taking a few deep breaths to calm you down can help you reassess the situation. The stress just sliping away…
Will I be happy to wake up and go to work? If so, continue.
What are my intentions in applying for this job? Is it a temporary solution unrelated to my career goals or am I looking to stay and invest myself in this company?
Do you believe in the company? Getting and keeping a job is important, but if you’re planning on staying there a while, you should make sure your opinions line up with their’s.
Am I ready for this position? For your own piece of mind, and for the interviewers, make a list of reasons why you are capable.
What are the benefits? Will this be a step forward or a step sideways?
How can I help them achieve their goals for the company? Ultimately, the interviewer wants you to prove to them why they should want you to further their goals. So make them see what it is about you that will help them do that. That being said, find out the company’s mission first!
What will they be looking for? Who will I be meeting and what might they be expecting?
How does my personality lend to the role? Team players will do well in interactive positions while introverts will succeed with more independent responsibilities. Morning people will love the early shifts that night-owls will cringe at.
I hope you will deal with next interview. Good luck!
