The Right Way to Do Interviews

For someone who just graduated from university, going to an interview can be a terrifying experience if it is your first time. And even if you have been in an interview, going again after a while will give you the nerves as well. Read this article to make sure that you will have a successful one.

Feel good about what you wear

Believe or not, looking good can make you feel ten times better in the interview. Find a look that is appropriate for the event, and you will step into the room with confidence. This tip will help you not to get as nervous knowing that you are looking your best. Aside from that, the interviewer will also appreciate the effort of you dressing up and being professional, which means that you are taking the occasion seriously. You don’t want to come in looking like a mess because this will do the opposite of getting you the job.

Do your research

researchThe one thing that will get you rejected is if you don’t put any effort into preparing for the internet. Imagine if you are asked about the company’s vision, and you can’t answer that question which makes it obvious that you did not do a research beforehand. That will make it look like you don’t really want to pass because you don’t even bother to look up the company’s profile. It will impress the interviewer more if you come prepared with the idea of what the company is doing, how long have the company been running, why the company is there, what they want to achieve, and overall knowledge about the position that you are applying for.

Be confident and be yourself

interviewAs much as you want to get the job, it is more important to get the right job for you. And you can’t let the company make a fair judgment if you are faking the interview. You need to be yourself even if it does not go with the company’s values because the interviewer needs to know the real you. You can’t possibly be someone who you are not. Eventually, the truth will come out, or you will be miserable.

Ask questions as well

Assuming that you will get the job, you need to make sure that you are not making the wrong choice by working for that company. For this reason, you need to prepare several questions and have criteria for your ideal workplace, environment, salary, and other things.…

How Internships Can Help You To Find a Job

If you are still in university, there are a lot of things that you need to do besides studying. And I am not talking about partying because we all know that we usually go to too many parties than we should have during our years being a university student. What you need to take and get your hands on is internship experience. To go for an internship is different with your part-time job during the summer. A part-time job is when you make money out of working at a shop, restaurant, retail, and many others where you are not working in an office. But with an internship, you will do more task from behind the desk and take some responsibilities as an employee of a company.

Bigger chance to get a job

Your grades are just one of a way for the company to filter candidates from their application, but it will not get you the job. The human resource department is far more interested in what have you done and what experience do you have. This part of the interview will reveal who you are as a student and what was your priority back then, is it just school and perhaps nothing else? Do you make time to do something aside from classes?

Working experience

Aside from it will make it easier for you to get a job, you will also get a chance to look at the industry or company that you are doing your internship at and think whether you like it there or not, figure out what you dislike for your future reference. So you can graduate with a vision to know which company and what kind of industry that you want or does not want to work in.

Learn new skills

Get yourself out there in the real world to know what the textbook won’t teach you. Self-development is what you will get from doing an internship, and it is what you need if you want to be more than the other graduates.…
