Tips to get hired at a Job.
If you want to leave a real impression then follow these simple steps:
You do not have a solution and answer for everything thrown at you from an employer but you can get through the tough questions (check out our interview articles) with our “search and response” technique. Remember that you are not supposed to answer tough questions with ease but you can handle them without problem with the right strategy.
Understand that you are not at war with your interviewer. The interviewers have the same goal in mind. Just relax and do your best. An interview is a good chance to make friends with your interviewers. Understand them and let them understand you. If it doesn't work out, it's no big deal. You have already gained something by knowing more people in your field and understanding more about your strengths and weaknesses.
Be positive, polite and confident because interviewers want to hire accommodating, smart and head-strong candidates who can get the end goal of their company done. Show the right body language and keep up that positive attitude whether it be with the interviewer, the receptionist or the folks hunkered down in their cubicles. Also, be friendly. People like someone who is social and nice at their job. In a government career,(and any career for that matter) make sure your physical appearance is presentable and professional.
Offer to help the interviewer look for suitable candidates for their other openings and make friends with them by sharing information on anything from business to personal interests.
In your follow-up correspondence, ask your interviewer what stage they are at in the hiring process.
What matters most is that you don't get frustrated. It simply doesn't help you in any way. The worst of all, your frustration will affect your performance in your next interview.
