JOB INTERVIEW TIPS

When you get an excellent job opportunity, you have to prepare yourself for grabbing that to achieve your target. Cracking the interview is not an easy task as the recruiters want you to not only stand on their criteria but also be able to prove your expertise. If you have already faced different interview, you know that it is not an easy process to meet all criteria of different recruiters.

As an HR manager, I feel that grabbing the opportunity of a wonderful job interview, needs some tactics which would represent you smarter and efficient than others in front of employers. It’s not necessary that you have to gain vast knowledge about every possible aspect; instead, you have to be smart, straightforward and efficient in communication.

Here I represent some useful tips which would be beneficial to crack the interview.

  • Conduct thorough research on recruiting company and recruiters

The first thing you can do after getting any job interview call is to make a thorough research on the recruiters and recruiting organisation. The more you make research on them, the more you would gain better knowledge regarding the criteria and requirement of the recruiters. By searching through official websites, online articles and magazines, you can obtain lots of information on the background of the company, pattern of interview questions asked by the recruiters and current economic condition of the company.
It is better to gain clear knowledge about the company before you would go for the interview. It not only enhances your confidence before meeting new people but also increases your knowledge about the company. By gaining proper knowledge on the recruiting company, you can realise the pattern of interview questions and can feel the exact requirement of recruiters.

  • Make effective review of possible interview questions

Effective analysis of possible interview question is important to enhance your strength to deal with different criteria of recruiters. It is not necessary that the questions at the interview hall that you face would be similar to that you have reviewed. However, the review of possible questions would make you able to answers different types of questions by applying the concept you get from the review.
For making further improvement, you can ask the higher management of recruiting company about the type of interviews such as whether it is a group interview or one-on-one process. You can also ask that, whether the panel would consist of only one interviewer or more than one interviewer. These concepts would assist you to get prepared for the interview. You need not memorise the answers that you have gained through review. You need to realise the concept and would enhance your communication skill to provide a fluent and smart answer to the recruiter.

  • Represent proper time management

For any organisation, time management is important and vital to meet the organisational goals. You must reach the interview venue 15 minutes before the scheduled time. The recruiter would not excuse you due to late arrival. There may be some additional work such as filling of some documents or talking to the receptionist to know that, in which room the interview is going on.
As HR manager, I feel that time management is important in cracking the interview. Your arrival before the scheduled time can offer you the opportunity to observe the dynamics of the company and the workplace environment. Therefore being punctual and good time managing person is important to grab the job opportunity.

  • Be relaxed and calm

When you go for an interview, you must be aware that recruiter would expect you to be highly smart and cool minded who can handle any complicated job tactfully. After reaching interview venue, you must be relaxed and ready to face the interview. You always remember that recruiter may reject you from their selection list if you get nervous at the time of the interview, in spite of giving a good answer to maximum questions. Therefore be smart and relax when reaching the interview venue and represent an impressive approach in front of an interviewer. Your self-confidence is important to make interviewer convinced that you are eligible to do any task.

  • Form good impression

We always remember that your first impression is the last impression to the interviewer. After reaching the interview venue, you can meet different people such as receptionist, attendants and higher managers. You should enter into interview hall with a warm greeting to all and polite attitude. Employers can be curious to know your behaviour with staffs as well as with other people. Your rude and harsh approach can derail your job opportunities easily. For making a strong impression on the interviewer, you should be well dressed, polite and must reach the interview venue in time.

It is important to make proper eye contact with your interviewer which makes them able to observe your expression and confidence level. You must welcome the interviewer with making soft handshaking and wish them properly. In the first few minutes, you can impress your interviewer by keeping a slight smile on your face through the entire interview process. Smiling face would make the interviewer feel that you are firmly confident in your ability and you can be able to meet company’s goals.

  • Be upbeat, confident, authentic and concise
  1. After the interview starts, you must maintain the quality of delivery of answers to different questions. It may occur that you are not able to answer all the questions. However, you must ensure that the answer you have given accurate and authentic. You should handle each interview question truthfully which establish your truthfulness and loyalty in front of your recruiters.
  2. It is evident that only loyalty is not sufficient to impress the employers. They seek a high level of intelligence, expertise and skill among the job seekers. You must focus on your experience, skill and can fit yourself with any interview questions which would show your adaptability.
  3. Lengthy and irrelevant answer make the employers bore and unable to hold their patience to listen to the job seeker. Your answer must be to the point and brief with a high level of specification which could make the employers understand the prime aspect of your answer easily. With representing rambling responses, you must show punctual accomplishment and solutions to each question.
  4. It does not matter, that how much an interviewer would bait you, you always maintain your polite approach and soft attitudes towards your peers and staffs of the organisation. Sometimes it occurs that, interviewer try to provoke you to experiment with your patience. At that moment you must hold your patient and answer each question with a good smile and polite approach.
  • Maintain proper body language

The content of the interview responses is paramount and poor body language can be a good reason for not hiring you. Strong body languages that can impress your employers are eye contact with your employers, active listening, solid posture, smiling face and nodding. Detrimental body language such as fidgeting in a chair, touching your hair or face, rolling your hair with fingers, mumbling or chewing gum and talking in a loud voice, can make a negative impression on the interviewers and they may reject your name from a selection list. Rude behaviour or argument with peers can also represent you as a person who is unable to hold patience in a critical time.

  • Sell yourself as far as you can

It is not necessary that only highly qualified candidate would grab the job opportunity. Employers seek the intelligence, common sense, patience and smartness among jobseekers which make them able to deal with any situation in an organisation. You must become approachable towards the interview question and would try to implement your knowledge and understanding to make significant answer.
You must establish all your possible knowledge and skills that may be helpful to deal with the interview questions to impress the interviewer. You should not be overconfident in your ability; however, you must represent your skill and perceptions to deal with the interview questions which would establish your knowledge, smartness and self-confidence in front of your interviewer.

  • Don’t become desperate

Many job seekers become desperate in interview halls and make a strong appeal to the interviewer to hire them. These types of approaches can make you lose the chance of getting the job. If you show the desperateness of getting the job, it can show your low confidence level and your lack of knowledge. You must be cool, confident and calm during an interview and always maintain your personality which would impress the interviewer.

  • Don’t become cocky

You must maintain the proper balance between professionalism modesty and confidence. You must put your best performance to represent your ability and maintain politeness as well as modesty in the way you would answer.

  • Follow up

You must follow up with a warm regard by saying thank you, which would represent your interest in the designation of the recruiting company. You have to maintain the common courtesy as well as the politeness by sending thanks via email to your recruiters which would represent your regards for the designation and the recruiters.

Above tips can be helpful to provide your overall knowledge on your appearance during interview hall, nature of questions and the way you deal with the interviewers. However, the prime key to success in interview hall is your self-confidence and problem-solving capability. Always be positive and believe in your ability which provides you strength to deal with the different interview in your life.

Summer vacation can be the best time for these tutors to earn extra money and to achieve their financial targets. Some of the best ways to earn extra bucks during the summer are:

There are usually a lot of schools in every city that offers summer school programs and summer activities during the summer vacations. These schools usually allow the kids to have fun during the summer vacation which is loved by all the kids. Also, these summer programs provide the opportunity to interact with the kids in a complete dissimilar atmosphere. These schools require teachers who can motivate these students and can guide them to the goal and the objective of the program.

There are a lot of parents who are ready to pay hundreds of dollar to the college students to teach their children. Usually, parents think that the college students can teach their children better than the professional tutors as the college students have a deep knowledge about the subjects, and they can explain it better. Also, the college students can understand the feeling of the students in a way better than the teachers. Hence, most of the parents prefer the college students to teach their children. Thus, there is a great opportunity for the college students to make some extra money during the summer vacation by teaching the local school students.

Teachers Pay Teachers: It is a new concept that especially has been introduced for the tutors so that they can earn some extra money. teacherpayteacher copy

According to this concept, the teachers hire some other teacher, and they pay them for teaching the students. For example; suppose there is a tutor ‘A’ who has hired some of the other tutors B, C and D. There are 50 students who give $20 per hour to the head tutor ‘A’. The teacher B, C and D teach those students and get paid $18 per hour. This is a concept which has benefits for all the students and B, C and D are already getting paid for teaching, and the students are paying for being tutored. Further ‘A’ is already taking the commission from the money that students give him/her. Thus, this is the best concept for earning extra money during the summer vacations and also during the school times.

Summer Day Care: Running a summer day care program is also one of the best ways to make extra money apart from the actual salary. The parents are usually spending hundreds of dollars during the summer vacations to send their children to a summer day care or a camp which gives them lessons for life and extra knowledge about the studies. It has mostly been noticed that the parents who work, have a huge list of need and demands for their children. Those parents usually demand the best quality and affordable child care centres for their children. The parents get usually convinced to seek admission for their children in a day care of the same tutor as in their children’s school. Also, those parents get ready to pay as much as amount as the tutors ask for because the parents think that the tutor will take care of their children in the school as well after the summer vacation ends. Thus, the tutors can easily earn a lot of extra money during the summer vacations by investing a very small amount of money.

There are some of the things that should be kept in mind while starting a day care:-

  • They owner should know about the licensing laws within the state, and the owner is also supposed to be the first aid certified and CPR as well.
  • A contract is needed to be made that clearly state the hours of business, a complete fee structure and policies.

Online Tutoring: Since the schools get closed during the summer holidays, the tutors stay free at home and usually they do not have much work to do. Online tutoring is the best option for the tutors who want to teach the students during the summer vacations. There are a number of tutors who only know how to teach the students, and they cannot do some other work. Hence, online is also almost the same as teaching in the schools and colleges. The teachers, who want to get paid by some extra money, can start online tutoring and can earn money by teaching the students over the internet.onlinetutoring copy

A person does not need to be a highly educated person to teach the younger students from schools. Thus, it is also very easy for the students of colleges to make extra money by teaching the school students. There are many online websites that offer online tutors for the students. The college students can also register on those online tutoring websites, and the website will provide them students to teach and those students will pay money to them.

Teach Different Languages: This is especially beneficial for the tutors or the people who have knowledge about different languages. The person, who is fluent in some other languages than the native language, can teach how to speak these languages and hence can earn extra money. Thus, it can be said that speaking another language is not just a skill, but it is also the best way for them to earn extra money.

There is also another opportunity for the tutors to earn money who can speak different languages. They can also try in a tourism company to earn extra money. There are thousands of people who travel the world during the summer vacations, and they usually cannot speak all the languages. This is a good way for the people to guide those tourists and earn extra money during the summer.

Exam Marking: Exam marking is another way of making extra money during the summer vacations which usually requires a person to be a qualified teacher or having a recent teaching experience. The summer vacations come after the final examinations of the students. The question papers of the final examinations of those students need to be checked and given marks, but the teachers are also usually on the vacations during summer. The teacher who checks and gives marks to the students are paid per question paper. Thus, the tutors get paid during the summer vacations as well by just making the question papers of the students. Thus, exam marking is also one of the best ways to earn extra money during the summer vacations.

Paid Internship: People nowadays have become so enthusiastic that they are always excited to learn things, instead of sitting and getting bored during the summer vacations. The paid internship is the best option for such people who want to earn extra money. The most important thing about a paid internship is that people get a chance to learn a lot of things and also they get paid for the same. This is a double beneficial thing for the people who want to learn as well as the people who have a desire of earning money. Thus, paid internship can also be a good opportunity for learning as well as earning for the people during the summer vacations. Apart from the students, the tutors can also apply for a paid internship for learning and earning as there is no age limit for learning.
