Ensuring job interview
After your eminent application and catchy CV has been read you obviously been called for an interview. It is important that you prepare yourself for the interview to make a good impression. We take only some good advice that you should take advantage of before the interview:

Getting to know the company
Find out who they are, how long they have existed, possibly. their current tasks which competitors they have, look for interesting press coverage, read their annual reports and the like. Have a sense of what a you are getting into. So you will also feel more confident when you first come in for the interview.

Find some questions
This is important, especially if there is anything you do not actually know - but that is relevant for you to know about the company and the job. Otherwise find some questions so you seem interested in the company. It could be questions about the company's future vision, training opportunities, meals, social happenings, etc..

Take the right clothes on
Here it is important that you find some clothes that match the company's degree of formality, ie no jogging pants in a law firm or suits out by the carpenter. In addition, it is essential that you feel comfortable in the clothes - it would seem that you feel good (or bad!) In the clothes you have on. Body language reveals you 100% if you are not yourself.

Consider what they ask you about
At the interview the company would like to get to know you, so expect questions about your personality, previous employment (including resignations and job titles), hobbies etc. Talk to friends and acquaintances about what they have been asked for interviews.

Visualize the conversation
Try using a visualization technique. Imagine getting out of the business, get out of your car, walk in the door, feel the door handle. Talk to the receptionist, walk up the aisles to the office or conference room, imagine meeting the interviewer. Customize the visualization of the company you are going to. Try to focus on all the little details you can. The heat in the room, the smile from the interviewer, the handshake and the good feeling when the conversation is over. Visualize a successful interview, where you show your best side and get a good contact with the interviewer. You're already half in goal now!

Now you have prepared yourself for the interview. Now we come to the interview. Here are some tips:

Come a little early. Come 10 minutes before your interview. The waiting time gives you time to find out what you can expect from the company. You can feel how formal / casual environment. It gives you a better chance to match your interviewer.

2: Take some deep breaths. It provides more oxygen to the cells in your body, it relaxes you and increases the health of the feeling in the body. Make sure not to have eaten something unhealthy before, it does not give you the optimum conditions to perform at your peak.

3: Give a good first impression. In reality, decides interviewer if they like you and want to hire you, within the first 15-30 seconds they see you. So make sure to be open, friendly and smiling. And give a good handshake, not too hard or too soft. Be sure to maintain eye contact and right front side of your body against the interviewers and show an open body language. Do not be too cocky, come with half-bad jokes or having his arms crossed or hands in your pocket. It abhors all to look at.

4: Good chemistry. Copy the interviewer's breathing and voice, then you will create a realgood chemistry between you hold back a little to start with. You are a guest in the company, so do not steal the scene from the interviewer. It is his / her domain - and they will feel like they're conversation - let them.

5: Be confident. Tell openly about your strengths and qualities. Do not exaggerate or act as "Superman". Do not apologize for the lack of skills or experience, show that you are human and also have weaknesses. If you do not have experience in a field and you are bad at something - just say that you have low experience or that it is not one of your strengths.

6: Give yourself time. If you need to consider a question, and it takes some seconds extra, let them take the time. It is better to give a precise and good answer other than to say "uhh, tjooo, jaaa I do not quite, perhaps ..".

7: Virk sure of yourself. You will act intelligently if you take the time to answer instead of answering the first that comes to mind. Take it easy, without getting the interviewer to fall asleep.

8: Be yourself. Be honest about the experience and your skills. If you lie, you keep track of your lies and you risk being terminated shortly after recruitment, if you have invented something about yourself. Do not bad mouth previous employers or colleagues. Be honest about why cooperation stopped, but without giving guilt or express hatred / anger towards former employees.

9: Salary negotiations. Do not talk salary before the interviewer even talking about it. Sea beforehand an expected wage and be ready to negotiate a little. Do not sell yourself too cheaply.

10: Ask your questions regularly. Make sure that your question comes at an appropriate time up the subject as they are dealing with. Do not save it all eventually.

11: Finish the conversation properly. Questions like "Do you have more questions" means that the conversation is over and the interviewer will continue. Restless body language, or the right of the clothes are also signs to I is nearing completion. Make sure not to have any questions back and nicely thank you for the conversation and goodbye. And give a smile at the end of the conversation.

Congratulations on your new job!
