Top 10 Ways To Ace An Interview

Top 10 Ways On How to Succeed At Any Job Interview

Have you gone through hoops and now it is time for that final interview that will get you the job or make you once again jobless? I will tell you what I have learned to ace an interview so you can get the job you want and not just a job that you have to take!

1. Take a shower and look your best! Make sure your cuticles are pushed back and if your a girl make sure you have clear nail polish. You want to look as clean and as put together as possible.

2. Go and buy a nice suit. I am not talking about a suit that all together cost about 50$. I am talking about a nice suit. Put it on your credit card if you have to. It doesn't have to be Hugo Boss or anything but get something that will last you a life time. Get something that looks rich and makes you look fierce. Get it tailored too for the little extra.

3. Get a hair cut so you look polished. The person that will be interviewing you will be examining your every move when you go into that boardroom or wherever it might be, so remember to always look pulled together.

4. Don't be too harsh on the make up. Look refreshed and don't pile on lipstick or blush or eye shadow. The point is to look well rested. Wear clear gloss and light eye shadow but you want to look pretty too but not trashy.. DO NOT WEAR PERFUME!!!!!

5. Buy new shoes or if you have black pumps or black or brown dress shoes make sure they are polished for the interview. It looks so bad when people focus all their energy into the suit but forget about wearing great shoes.

6. Bring a black or brown leather portfolio with you with a copy of your resume inside. It always looks professional to carry around a briefcase or portfolio. Turn off your phone when you are in the interview as well.

7. Don't wear too much jewelry. It's not a fashion show, it's an interview so don't get too unique with the way you present yourself. Still maintain who you are but don't go overboard and keep professional.

8. Go over some interview questions with your friends before you go. If you have to, look them up on the internet and rehearse them with your pet if there is no one else. Also go over your resume and make sure your know it front to back in case they quiz you on it.

9. Make sure you print out the map of where to go so your not late for the interview and you don't get lost. If you can... go the day before just to make sure you know exactly where you are going. Arrive at the interview 15 minutes early. Sometimes they can take you earlier. Some places actually expect you come that early. It's always good to be prepared for anything on the day of.

10. Always smile and look confident. If you don't know what they are talking about in the interview than fake it. You can always Google it later. But make sure you don't say yes to everything and because they might ask further questions about it and they you will look stupid. Just little white lies about things to make you look better is all. Also eye contact. When you are speaking they are looking for nervousness and eye contact. Try not to fidget if possible. Avoid words like um or ah when speaking. This is the day that you have been waiting for. Act like they need you in this job and they will hire you.
