The truth to avoid ……… Some funny job interview stories

Funny job interview stories are good for more than just a laugh. They illustrate the mistakes that many job candidates make, only make them in a much bigger and more obvious way. For instance, there's the story of the candidate who was asked to describe his ideal job. His response was that he didn't know, that he hadn't had it yet. This shows a serious lack of understanding of how to play the interview game. In that event, the best response is to simple describe the job that you are applying for. Or there's the story of the candidate who was asked what motivated him. He answered that he had a big house, a big car and a big credit card balance, so he was motivated by money. As honest as this answer is, most employers do not appreciate being told answers that honest. For one thing, it implies that the employee will leave for a more lucrative offer.

·         Show interest: The best time to really show how interested you are to join the company is the time at the end on the interview; however remember not to go overboard about it or it will backfire

The big interview demystified…….the consolidation of thoughts

We have been tackling interview advice in pieces but today we want to consolidate all those thoughts into one brief article. As you know job interviews represent some of the most important and also nerve-wracking moments in people's professional lives. ‘Decrease the anxiety and increase your success’ is the basic rule of the game. Interviews seem a daunting task, but it doesn’t need to be unduly stressful or scary. The better prepared you are for an interview, the better you will feel and perform, and the better your chance of being hired.
Good communication is the key to a good interview; you need to know what you want and why you are there, and be able to convey that to the employer. You are trying to convince the employer that you would be a positive and beneficial addition to their company or business.
Preparing for the Interview
Know yourself. Know what your personal and career goals are, and how they fit with the company’s goals. It can be a good idea to do some research on the company beforehand, to get an idea of what it does what it believes in and even who the company works with or competes against.
