TIPS FOR JOB SEEKERS FROM THE TOP RECRUITERS
At some point in your life, you need a job. Maybe you don’t need it now but in future, you’ll have to face the interview panel and it is scary and embarrassing when you don’t know how to prepare for it. So, in this article, we’ve jotted down some tips from the top recruiters for our readers so they can impress the interviewer and get the job.
Carry a Notebook: Even if you don’t use it, always carry it with you. It will make you look professional and organised and you’ll be always ready to note down important points.
Smile: Smile is a game changer; you don’t want to look tired, or angry and gives the impression that someone forced you to be on the job interview.
Dress to Impress: Young people don’t take interviews seriously and casually show up in jeans and a t-shirt. It always creates a bad impression. So, always wear something professional.
Always Read the Job Description: You call someone for an interview, send everything through an email and that person doesn’t even bother to read it, how does it feel? Of course, very bad. So, always read the job description before an interview and nail it by talking about your skill level and your experience.
Company Research: Apart from finding the right person for the job, recruiters also try to find someone who is a perfect fit for their organisation too. So, always do your complete research about the organisation before stepping in front of the panel.
Always Ask Questions at the End: when the panel ask, “do you have any questions for us?” never look straight at their face and say “No”. it will create a bad impression so always do your complete research and ask something. If you cannot come up with anything, you can ask something generic like their training methods, probation period etc.
Never Disclose Your Weaknesses: They will try their best to make you spill out your weaknesses but try to be open-minded and never tell them anything which will jeopardise your job like “I am short-tempered” etc as no one wants an angry person walking around in the office. So, find something which doesn’t come in the way of your job.
Wear a Nice Perfume: Never go for an interview dripping in sweat or vice versa, which means don’t empty your perfume bottle as some people have allergies so a moderate amount will do.
Follow-up Email: Maybe they got busy with other stuff and forgot about you? So, always send a follow-up email after a week or two and ask about the status of your application.
