Looking for the perfect job is only the first step, finding one is the second and cracking the interview is the last but most important. A dream job requires effort and needs you to put your best foot forward. Even though you may have all the qualifications and required experience, if you are unable to make a positive impression at the interview it all goes to waste! Similarly, you may not have the experience but knowing how to make the right impression at the interview can help you land up with a job even better than you expected.
Are you preparing for a Canadian job interview? Clueless about what to do and how to go about it? Here’s everything you need to know:
All that counts is how you present yourself to the employer. Presentation includes how you dress to how you convince the employer that you perfectly fit the match for the job. Prepare to answer the question, ‘why you are the right candidate?’
- Updated and Honest Resume
Your resume must be updated and must only consist of the truth. Never lie on your resume because that’s the easiest thing to catch! Be prepared to answer questions regarding your past experience and even describe your role and contributions.
- Know your Employer
Getting the interview call may have you all excited but don’t forget to do a little research and understand the employer. Read up on the company and the various things it is into. It presents you as a well informed and desirable candidate.
- Be Proactive
Remember it’s you who needs the job, a little eagerness and willingness will only be appreciated. After you understand the role and the company show your eagerness to be a part of the organization. A laidback attitude can be seen as a negative quality.
The most important aspect- confidence. Be confident about yourself, know you are the best and show it through your body language. Nothing is appreciated more than a confident personality who is sure about the skills and capabilities.
Don’t let rejection perturb you. As long as you give your best and present yourself in the best way, you have done your part. Acceptance and rejection has got nothing to do with your capabilities. Trust in yourself and the right employer will see your potential.
Best of luck!
