An extremely important moment in the life of any professional is the selection process and the various filters to obtain a position where the acquired knowledge can be applied; therefore, making a good impression is essential.
The time that your employer dedicates to you should be enough to generate interest in your profile, so it is important to make a good impression, and, above all, know how to persuade him that you are the best option for the position for which you are applying.
Prepare yourself in time so that the nerves and anxiety decrease when you are in your interview. What can you do? Here I share it with you:
1. Look for information about the company where you want to work
Previously investigate the place you are going to apply, ask yourself, what do they do? What are your values? What is your story? What do they look for in an employee? Who will interview you? As well as any relevant news about her. The more prepared you are, the more confident you will feel.
2. Take care of your image and body language
Also investigate what the company’s dress code is so that you wear the right attire and colors, this will be an advantage for you, a differentiator that will make you stand out from others.
Similarly, your non-verbal communication should go according to your words, try to maintain an open posture (do not cross your arms), make eye contact, keep your voice loud enough to be heard clearly and do not forget to smile.
3. Be concise and honest
It is possible that during the interview process you want to give details of each of your skills, try to be specific with your answers and, above all, be consistent with your profile.
Do not try to offer a service or knowledge that you do not have as it may bring you repercussions in the future. Instead, show yourself and express that you are willing to learn.
4. Sell your skills
Remember that in a job interview, the employer wants to know more about your professional life than your personal life, so focus on mentioning how you work every day, why you would be valuable to the organization and what your areas of experience are, and above all, stand out. your professional skills and abilities.
5. Do this at the end of the interview
Take care of the end of the process with your interviewer, be cordial, show gratitude and reflect your interest in continuing to pay attention to the selection process. You can even ask your interviewer to give you a business card so that, if possible, you can call to ask how your selection process is going.
Although it is important that you have the necessary knowledge for the position you are applying for, your attitude and confidence with which you develop can be the difference, to project your personal branding in the same way. Always remember to be authentic and willing to learn.
