How to succeed in your job interview on the first try?

If a recruiter invites you to an interview, it is because you have drawn their attention, you have taken a step forward, thanks to your CV or during the telephone interview. 

You must now reassure him, in other words prove to him that he was not on the wrong target during your next physical interview.

Whatever the type of interview (internship or job), this is the last phase of the recruitment process; this is the opportunity for the recruiter to make his final choice.

To be successful in an interview, it is essential to prepare for it in advance.

Here are some steps to follow to be almost certain of success.

Before the interview

Find out about the company first:

Gather all the information you have on the company, its missions, its needs, its location …

Prepare for your interview:

Practice in advance for the most frequently asked questions. Make sure you are comfortable and confident before the d-day.

Prepare your trip:

Punctuality plays a key role in the interview, it reflects your motivation for the position. So you have to do this to be on time or even before time to sometimes anticipate unforeseen events such as traffic jams …

Have a good presentation:

Your appearance is more important than you might think, wear clean, neutral clothing suitable for the company you are applying for. Avoid wearing bright colors, shoes in which you will feel uncomfortable or bling-bling that could interfere with the maintenance.

Be professional:

And yes do not be surprised! The recruiter pays attention to body language. So it’s really important to stand up to him. First of all, shake his hand frankly, wait for him to ask you to sit down, turn off your phone so as not to disturb or be disturbed.

During the interview

Remember, the recruiter has read your resume and has it in front of them. So be brief in the presentation.

  • You have to express yourself clearly
  • Introduce yourself if you are asked of course and let the recruiter explain the interview process
  • Respond to the questions asked in particular his training, his experiences from the oldest to the most recent, his missions if one has any
  • Go beyond the few elements that appear in your resume.

Try to be confident and try to relax. Look the other person in the eye, avoid moving too much in your chair, chewing gum, smiling but not widely.

It’s up to you to show that you are the right person for the job.

At the end of the interview, the employer can ask if you have any questions, if not, don’t be afraid to do it, on the contrary it is often well received.

Make the recruiter remember you

Always remember to greet your interlocutor once again and thank them when you leave. Ask him for his email so that once home, you send him a thank-you message for the time and interest given to your application. 

If you haven’t heard back for a while, please feel free to contact the company again to find out.
