Helpful Advice for foreigners
Thoroughly preparing for an interview makes a huge difference in how successful you will be. As the saying goes “fail to prepare, prepare to fail”. Being prepared for a job interview will help you manage the stress of answering questions and will help you make a positive impression on the interviewer. Here are some TIPS on how to prepare for that important day.
Poor presentation, bad layout, coloured paper and a confusing format are all obvious errors that will ensure that you won’t be invited for an interview. Keep your CV clear and precise and limit it to one or two pages. In addition complement your CV with a well written cover-letter focussed on the reasons why you think you are suitable for the position you are applying for.
Researching your potential employer
Leading up to your interview it is vitally important that you spend some time researching the company you hope will offer you employment. That means going online, reading and digesting as much of the company’s profile and activities as possible. You might want to visit the company’s reception to gain further written information on how the business operates.
How to dress
The first judgement an interviewer makes is going to be based on how you look and what you are wearing. That’s why it’s always important to dress appropriately for a job interview. Think about the post you will be applying for and dress accordingly.
Arriving on time
It is absolutely essential that you arrive for your interview on-time, 15 minutes before the time of your interview will help to impress those interviewing and give you the edge. Take into consideration that you may have traffic hold-ups, leave home early and arrive calm, focussed and prepared for the interview.
Honesty is the best policy
It’s easy to get caught in a web of lies. A slight distortion of the facts on your resume may score you an interview, but the truth will eventually come out whether it’s in the interview itself, during a reference check or when you turn up for the first day on the job and have no idea what to do. Know the difference between dressing up the facts to make them look good and making them up altogether.
Competency based questions
These questions are becoming more and more popular at interviews and require you to give examples and evidence connected with your experience. For example when you have demonstrated a specific behaviour or value or when you have delivered against that skill set. To prepare for these questions have a look at the job specification, and identify the key things that you think are going to be critical and think about your career history and things you have done in the past that match
At the end of an interview you will normally be the given opportunity to ask questions so always remember to prepare a few in advance. During the interview some of your questions may be answered by the interviewer so always prepare at least 6 or 7 questions so that you will have a few remaining questions and avoid a dull silence when asked “Do you have any questions”.
