6. Be Genuine, Focused and Concise

The interviewer wants to know who you really are–so be yourself. Deliver your answers with authenticity and truthfulness.

Provide focused responses that answer the interviewers question while showcasing your skills, experience, and fit–with both the job and the company.

Keep your answers concise and to the point, but include strong examples of your accomplishments and results you’ve achieved for past employers.

Expect some interview questions and prepare the response ahead of time. If you
have some great examples to share, do keep them concise and to the point.

7. Dress the Part

Dress professionally.

Plan a wardrobe that fits the organisation, culture, and the position you are applying for.

Before deciding on the appropriate attire, get an inside perspective or by visiting the company’s website that shows images of their workplace.

8. Pay Attention To Your Body Language

One can blow the interview with poor body language.

Smiling, good posture, nodding, eye contact, and active listening are effective forms of body language.

Do refrain from acts like fidgeting, playing with objects, slouching, avoiding eye contact, not speaking clearly or in monotone or brushing back hair. They will leave a lasting negative impression.
