Interview tip of the month:
How to Shine in Any Interview Situation
Face-to-face interviews come in a variety of forms: behavioral, situational, structured and panel, to name a few. How can you shine in any format?
- Prepare talking points in small, manageable chunks so you can adapt them to the needs of the interview.
- Research the employer and role. Know what's required, as well as how your background and experience make you the ideal candidate.
- Maintain perspective. Although you are being interviewed, remember that you are actually interviewing the employer, too. Always have a few questions ready to ask about the position and the company.
- Don't forget to breathe! A few discreet deep breaths can help you relax and release some of the tension from your body.
