Here are Tips for a Successful Job Interview and ensuring you secure the job you want

 The interviewer's impression of you may matter more than your actual skills. You will not only be judged on your degree and work history, but also on your demeanor, social skills, and communication prowess.

You and the interviewer should have a back-and-forth in which you both provide and receive information and feedback. The only way for you and your partner to determine whether you, the business, and the job are a good match is to have this talk. The trick is to prepare in advance.

Show up on time.

This usually entails a ten- to twenty-minute early arrival. Interviewers usually get ready in advance of the allotted time.

Get the hang of pronouncing and spelling the interviewer's name.

Use it when you’re being interviewed. If you don't recognize the name, dial the office and inquire with the secretary. Remember the name of the secretary in case you need to contact her again. Secretaries may have a role in the hiring decision.

Get a couple of your own questions ready ahead of time.

Having a short list of questions and ideas to discuss with the interviewer shows that you are interested in the business and the position, as well as that you have done your research.

Don't forget to bring a printout of your report. File your documents neatly and take them with you.

Pack a compact notebook and a pen you can rely on.

When you first meet the interviewer, shake hands and smile.

Keep your eyes open, but don't stare somebody directly in the eye.

It will take time to get to know someone.

If you're feeling worried, you shouldn't beat yourself up about it.

As you get more experience, you'll feel more at ease throughout the interviewing process.


Don't downplay your personal characteristics, transferable skills, and willingness to learn by apologizing for your lack of relevant work experience. Give an account of your qualifications that emphasizes the value they'll bring to the company.

Disclose the facts.

In the end, you'll regret telling lies and exaggerating.

Listen carefully to the interviewer.

Verify that you have understood the question, and if you haven't, either ask for clarification or reword it. Respond in a way that is both complete and concise. Keep your attention on the matter at hand.

Never speak ill of your lecturer, friend, job, or the school itself.

The company highly values dedication to its cause.

Keep your grammar in check.

Good communicators are in high demand in the workforce. If it means going slowly and correcting oneself, accuracy is better than grammatical fluency any day.

Get ready for some personal questions.

Some interviewers may not be aware of the limits placed by law on the kind of questions they can ask. Think about how you can answer such questions without becoming defensive.

Don't assume you'll be offered the job after the first interview.

Many jobs need at least two interviews before making an offer, and often even more.
