Landing yourself that dream job is ultimately dependent on both your expertise and experience, but if your interview skills aren’t up to scratch, it’s likely you will miss out on the position to someone else.
While we hear so often that interview preparation is integral when searching for new employment, how many jobseekers actually know what this “preparation” entails?
With the rise of technology and social media, these tips can benefit anyone during the recruitment phase, whether you are an industry professional or school leaver looking for an entry level job.
Researching the job position is a given, as is reviewing information about the company itself, but good preparation extends a lot further than that.
Heading to the company website is a good starting point. From there you can read up about what they do and check out their social media pages – which you should follow and become a fan of!
Social media is a boon for any jobseeker and by spending a bit of time on these platforms before your interview, you can be guaranteed to impress a prospective employer.
Use the hashtag symbol on Twitter to follow industry related news – ensuring you are up to play with the latest in your field of expertise.
LinkedIn can also be beneficial for those on the lookout for jobs; by joining relevant industry groups you will show your initiative and interest in the sector.
