Looking for a new job can be an arduous process and going through the interview process can certainly be stressful, but nailing the job interview it’s an important part of landing that perfect job you’ve been hoping for. The more preparation you put in leading up to an interview, the greater your chances of landing the job.
In a recent interview with Career Coach and Co-Founder of FIA NYC Employment, Lindsay Watson, she discussed how to effectively communicate who you are and why you’re the right fit for the job. To help with this, Watson suggests 3 top tips with Nancy Werteen on WFMZ-69 News’ Workplace Lessons.
TIP #1: Stop and really look at what you’ve accomplished and the theme of your resume. This means taking the time to reflect on your past work experience, accomplishments, and skills. Look for patterns and themes in your work history. This will help you understand how you can communicate your strengths and qualifications in a way that is clear and easy for others to understand.
TIP #2: Practice and rehearse what your resume says. This will help you feel more confident and comfortable during the interview, and will also help you communicate your qualifications and skills more effectively. It’s also important to have examples from your past work experience that demonstrate your qualifications, so you can use them to answer any questions that the interviewer may ask.
TIP #3: Keep your resume with you during the interview. With so many phone and Zoom interviews happening these days, it’s a good idea to have your resume on hand in case you need to refer to it. This will help you stay calm during the interview and take the pressure off of you. Additionally, it will help you clearly communicate your qualifications and skills in case you forget something from your past work experience that you want to highlight.
By following these tips, you’ll be better prepared and more confident during your next job interview. Remember to be yourself and let your qualifications, skills, and experience shine through.
