Your resume has been dialed in, the company has contacted you, and the job interview has been scheduled. This is the moment; youve reached the last hurdle. That being said, theres quite a bit you need to keep in mind when you are interviewing for Rogue Valley Jobs. Here are some things you should do, and some things you definitely should not do, that will help you land that position.
1. Do practice before interviewing. When you try to improve your three-point basketball shooting, or learn another language, you practice. Why not do so with a job interview? Working on your delivery, anticipating questions, and perfecting your tone can only help. Get some friends to do a mock interview with you. The stress of the job interview is something everyone can relate to, and theyll be eager to help.
2. Do not interrupt your interviewer. Interviewers can do a lot of talking, and what they have to say (particularly regarding the company) can be important and informative. You would do well to listen more than you speak, and you dont want to come across as rude or desperate.
3. Do ask questions. The question and answer process is a two way street in the job interview. So feel free to ask away; it shows engagement.
4. Dont lie. Honesty is always the best policy in the job interview. If you dont know an answer to a question, it is always better to admit your ignorance than to make something up on the fly.
