How to Make Your own Face Covering
- PREPARING FOR THE INTERVIEW!
By asking only a few questions, an interviewer can get a good idea of whether or not you are suitable for the position.
Always do research about the company and the work you will be doing to better understand the background of the position for which you are being considered. Even more important is knowing yourself and being able to present that information to the potential employer, your past achievements and your present strengths. The interviewer wants to understand these areas so they can determine how you will fit into their organization. Your manners, social sense, and ability to speak clearly and directly to their questions are critical to the success of your interview. You should dress appropriately and neatly, and pay attention to grooming.
Above all, listen carefully to the interviewer’s questions and take your time in answering
- INTERVIEW TIME
Don’t feel you have to be talking constantly. From time to time ask questions yourself to clarify the meaning of a question or to show appropriate interest.
The interviewer wants to get a sense not only of what you CAN do but also what you WILL do. In answering any questions, look for ways to giving a correct but positive impression of yourself.
- What have you been doing for the last six months (or the last year)?
- Why did you leave (do you want to leave) your last position?
- What are your strengths? Weaknesses?
- Tell me about yourself.
The client already has your resume. He wants to hear you talk about your activities, the more abstract aspects of your last position(s), whether you prefer to work alone or are a team player, how you handle pressure and deadlines, etc. and they will want to see how you handle yourself. Be prepared to spend a few minutes discussing your assignment(s) for the last year or two. Respond with specific details and examples; avoid abrupt “yes” or “no” answers.
If you left for a reason other than completion of the project, state your reasons honestly and simply. Do not give a long, detailed answer on the “wrongs” you found at the job.
The ability to talk about your strengths is an indication of self-confidence. As for your weaknesses, it is probably accurate to say that none have been called to your attention that would prevent you from doing a good job in the position under consideration.
• Try to connect both with your sight and your thoughts
• Be strong, but not rude
• Don’t be mushy, but be likable. The interviewer needs to like you in order to hire you regardless of your skills
- FOLLOW UP!
After your interview, follow up with the interviewer or your staffing company and let them know how it went!
Best of luck on your next interview!
