Good At The Job, But Not Interviews?
|Career : Interviews|
One of the key facts most employers know, but accept, is that interviewing is not a particularly good way of finding the best person for the role. In a very limited time they have to tell how suited a person is, largely based on their confidence to answer the questions and talk themselves up.
There is one key idea that you need to understand before attending an interview - being good at a job and being qualified for a job is not the same as doing well at interview. They are totally separate things.
Just as you train for the job, so you can for interview too.
There are two key things you need in order to succeed at interview.
The first of these is PREPARATION - prepare, prepare, prepare. Think of all the questions that you could be asked, and have answers ready for them. Think of questions to ask the employer too.
The second thing is CONFIDENCE - and lots of it. We naturally believe those around us who are confident and feel at ease with them. The employer is more likely to trust your answers and find them credible if you have confidence.
