Enhancing Interview Skills










You may be smart and a most qualified job seeker but without adequate preparation for the interview you will find it very difficult to face most of the questions. Remember that you do not have a second chance to prove yourself. Therefore it is important that you develop your interview skills.  
Nonverbal Communication

This signals your confidence level: standing straight, making eye contact and connecting with a firm handshake are to be noted.
Dress Code

It is very important to know in advance what to wear for an interview and to be well-groomed. Whether you wear a formal or casual wear depends on the company culture and the position you are seeking. It is always advisable to contact the company in advance and find out the dress code before the interview.

Listen

From the very beginning of the interview, your interviewer is giving you very crucial information directly or indirectly. If you are not listening to it, you are missing a major opportunity.
Don't Talk Too Much

Telling the interviewer more than what he needs to know about you is a mistake. When you have not prepared ahead of time gather information by reading through the job posting, matching your skills with the position's requirements.

Don't act as too Familiar

The interview is a professional meeting to talk business. This is not about making a new friend. Your level of familiarity should mimic the interviewer's demeanor. It is important to bring energy and enthusiasm to the interview and to ask questions, but do not overstep your place as a candidate looking for a job.

Proper use of Language

You are expected to use professional language during the interview. Avoid inappropriate slang words or references to the age, race, religion, politics as these topics may act against your interest.

Overconfidence

Attitude plays a major role in the success of your interview. You have to maintain a balance between confidence, professionalism and modesty. Although you're putting on a performance to demonstrate your ability, overconfidence is not advisable.

Listen and Answer

In case if the interviewer ask you about your past performance this question is raised to find your past behavior. If you don't answer the question, missing a chance to prove your ability and project your skills.

Questions

If the interviewer ask you whether you are having any questions do not hesitate or feel shy to ask questions. Asking questions show your interest in the company. It gives you a chance to find out whether this is the right place for you. The best questions come from listening to what you're asked during the interview and asking for additional information.

Feel Confident

Do not feel desperate remain cool, calm and confident. You know well that you can do the job; make sure the interviewer believes that you can do it.
