3 Ways to Prepare for a Job Interview

At one point or another in our lives, we would all have to go through a job interview. Here are three approaches to calming your nerves before going for this important event:

1.         Wear Your Best Work Outfit

Many people would tell you that if you look great, you feel great too. And this is the crux of the matter. Wearing your best work outfit gives you confidence. But if you don’t have one, go out and buy one.

Most established departmental stores would have an in-house shopper on site to recommend a suitable ensemble for you. Don’t feel shy to ask as knowledge is power and the more you find out about what type of attire suits your body shape and skin tone, the more you are able to select the right kind of clothes for yourself.

2.         Have a Good Meal

Never go to a job interview on an empty stomach as you are already stressed and the constant grumbling stomach noises won’t help either. You owe it to yourself to eat a decent meal before facing your interviewer.

Having food in your stomach is always a beneficial thing as you can think better and are not “hangry” (hungry and angry) during the interview. You will find yourself being more cordial if you are not already. You are able to understand and process the interviewer’s questions better and faster and provide more convincing and reliable answers.

Your overall presentation (physical and psychological) will leave a better impression on the interviewer than if you went into the interview angry and disgruntled.

3.         Investigate the Company

By “investigating”, I don’t mean “stalking”. You don’t need to go to view the Facebook account of the CEO to check out how many kids he has or what he does during the weekends.

What I mean, for example, is to study the background of the company, how long they have been around, what their main business is, whether they have any branches or subsidiaries and the number of people employed by them.

Most companies would publish their yearly financials and it would be good to have a look at them. If you find reading financial reports challenging, you could ask a friend to have a brief look and tell you what’s it’s all about.

The main point here is to do your background check on the company and their business plan.

Last word: Apply these three methods whenever you have a job interview and they would improve your chances of landing that job. All The Best To Your Job Interview!
