Whether you’re still connected with company or a person who are eager to find new job, facing an interview is something you must take seriously. Prepare your answers to some common questions like…
- Could you tell us about yourself?
- Why should we hire you?
- Why did you leave your company or looking for another job?
- Where do you see yourself five years from now?
- What’s your edge against other applicants?
There are other questions apart from these five that you must know, but I think the most essential thing is know yourself. Analyze your strengths and weaknesses then take time to practice how you will deliver those things to your interviewer (s). Because let’s face it, not all applicants who get hired are really good in what they are doing, they just know how to look confident during interview.
My apology if I can’t give the winning answers to those questions since there are plenty of good advises that you’ll read in other sites. For me, you can’t really copy their answers because of differences. What I can share perhaps is how to boost you self esteem for interview.
A. Enrich your communication skills. Before they know that you are real treasure, they must listen to your statement. Now, if you are not articulate and mumble that are already minus points. Of course, good grammar is plus-plus points.
B. Don’t be afraid with your interviewer. I’m hypocrite if I say I don’t feel tense when I’m in an interview. I just compose my self that I’m answering the person that is just in charge to question me. This person is human too and if I make or break it, I’m still alive and continue my life. I just have to persuade him/her to hire me.
C. Enough practice lessen you nervousness.
D. Pray and have faith. Pray to have divine guidance and have faith that if this job is for you, you will get it.
