Dress-code, language, non-verbal communication … Beyond your career and your ability to present well, recruiters are also sensitive to your attitude in maintenance. So many elements to be considered for the big day
1. Turn 7 times his tongue into her mouth before speaking
We all have language tics. But between an informal discussion with friends and a job interview, some should be avoided, especially as this can be horrifying. The “huh”, “um”, “what” that punctuate the sentences are to be banned. As well as mistakes in French: no more “if I had known, I would not come!”
2. The form, that is the bottom that rises to the surface
Your resume is concrete, your background fits perfectly with the ad to which you are applying.And yet, the day of the interview, you are unable to convince the interviewer? In a speech to be heard, no matter the background, you have to put the forms. Clearly, it is necessary to control the intonation of his voice to better sell your presentation. Indeed, it is hard to believe that a candidate is dynamic if he said in a voice too “soft” … Think also of how you stand to face your partner, you are playing hands well only your eyes. While this may sound secondary, the recruiter will necessarily be sensitive to the way you behave.
3. Victim of a bad dress code?
Maintenance you are deemed to “55% of your appearance, to 38% on your body language and only 7% of your words” , says the Virginia Cozic, director of a consulting firm image. If it is regrettable that “diktat of appearance” , suitable clothing maintenance is, however, a prerequisite expected recruiter. Unless you work in the world of fashion, the protocol is that you show up in your best interview.
4. Be inflexible with punctuality
Never, O never, you must not be late for a job interview, even if the caller then leaves you hanging around. When the unexpected happens, notify the company and make your mea culpa. This is considered the least polite …
5. The art of discourse spontaneously
For a successful job interview, it is necessary to have prepared well. On the form, as we have mentioned previously but also in substance. This will allow you to be consistent in your presentation and respond tit for tat to the questions of the recruiter. You will not be destabilized and you can release your records to show a more spontaneous speech.Confidence always pays off: it will reassure the caller. A good point for step by!
6. Tell me about you …
This trick question remains a classic of the interview. There is no point stressing: the recruiter does not wait for you a long monolog from your birth to the present. Rather, the goal is to test your ability to synthesize a clear speech in connection with the position and presence in maintenance. So do not make tons, be concise but clear and seller …
7. My old company? All the c …!
If there is one thing to never do is to speak ill of your former company, or your former colleagues, hierarchical or not. Although it is one of the reasons you want to go, you will legitimize your current career choice by a professional argument. Nobody likes to be criticized, much less that he may be …
8. Goodbye, and thank you
Last important point during a job interview, how you put a term. If a recruiter asks you at the end if you have questions, it is vital to have noticed – in writing if necessary – in the corner of your head the points you want to pursue. This means that you already plan in the post and you take things to heart. Finally, to conclude the interview, it is obligatory to thank your interlocutor, to say goodbye and, even better, to greet others who have welcomed you. Otherwise, or the person at the reception will quickly cut you a suit …
The Strong research sets the foundation for a great interview. If you have your sights set on a new company, set aside a generous amount of time to research the company, it’s market and leadership team. The best place to start is the company’s website. This will give insight into the product or service line offered and company mission. If you’re heading to a new industry, hone up on your knowledge of the key players, products, and services. Often websites will profile the leadership team. Refer to your professional networking website to uncover any first or second-degree contact you may have in common. If appropriate, reach out to them for advice and recommendations.

Putting your best foot forward for the interview means dressing for success. Lose the bling, facial piercings and heavy makeup for the interview. This does not mean denying who you are, or changing your identity, it simply means stepping up your look to meet the standards of the professional workplace. Select a suit or jack in a solid color and leave the prints at home. If you’re self-conscious about your eyelashes, take advantage of the savings offered by Groupon coupons and set an appointment at a local salon for eyelash extensions. Polish your shoes and resume binder and get ready to wow the hiring manager. Remember that interviewing is a two-way street. You’re objective is not just to land the job, but to also determine if this is the company where you want to grow your career. Put on the genuine smile and quiet self-confidence and you’ll nail the interview!
