We know that job hunting can be a stressful process, whether it’s your first experience or you’re looking for a change. That’s why we’ve put together a list of tips to help you arrive with complete peace of mind and focus on giving your best performance:
- Make sure of the date, time, and location of the interview
To avoid mistakes, review the date and time of the interview. This way, you’ll make sure to be punctual, which will give a good impression from the first moment. In addition, it’s important to know in advance if the interview will be in person or virtual so you can organize how to get to the location or prepare the electronic device from which you’ll connect.
- If something unexpected comes up, let them know as soon as possible that you won’t be able to attend the interview
In order to consider the other person’s schedule, if an emergency arises and you have the possibility to let them know, don’t hesitate to do so. It’s a sign of respect and empathy for the interviewer’s time, which will help with the impression they have of you at the company.
- Prepare beforehand by researching the company and having a clear understanding of the role for which you’ll be interviewed
To demonstrate your interest in the company and position, we recommend that you research them. Asking in the interview what company is interviewing you and what position it is looks unprofessional and a bit disorganized. In addition, knowing about the company and position beforehand will help you focus your questions on them and clear up any doubts.
- If the interview is via video call, make sure you can access the platform and that you can be heard and seen clearly
In order to have a fruitful interview, make sure your microphone and camera are working properly and that you have downloaded or logged into the corresponding application if necessary.
We also suggest making sure you’re in a quiet place that allows for concentration, has no background noise or distractions, and thus enables a smooth conversation.
- Prior to the interview, make sure to send an updated resume to whoever will be interviewing you
In order to have part of an interview focused on your experience and knowledge, it’s necessary to have an organized and updated resume at hand. It will be a subject of conversation through which you can explain your career.
