Tips for Interview Success

Are you ready to nail the interview for your next step up the career ladder? Whether you’re interviewing for a position with your existing employer or have identified a new company for which you’d like to work, there are key preparation points that need to be followed to ensure a successful outcome. Follow these recommendations from the professionals to put your best foot forward.

Keep in mind that if you’ve already been selected for an interview, the hiring manager has determined that you have the skill set and experience to meet the qualifications of the position. That part is covered. Your task now lies in researching the department, new company, products and services to the best of your ability. If you’re venturing to a new firm, start with their website. Learn as much as you can about the industry as well as products and services offered by the company. You will also be able to get a strong idea about the company culture from the website. Take it a step further and research the company’s key competitors and well as market trends and market position. Review your network to determine if you have any first or second degree connections with the hiring manager as well.

Dress for success. Rethink the bling and extreme hairstyles. Even if a company follows a business casual dress code, business attire is always called for in an office interview. Remember that the most important thing to wear to a job interview is a genuine smile and quiet self-confidence. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and invest in a pair of stylish Stuart Weitzmann pumps or flats. It will be an investment that will pay off for years to come.

Finally, remember that interviewing is a two way street. You are also using this meeting to determine if this is a company or department that will meet your needs for career advancement and you find a comfort level in the culture of the company and or department. Best of luck to you on your new job!
