Making the most of your interview.
The interview is may be the most important part of the entire job search, it is the biggest determining factor of whether you get the job or not. Here are a few pointers to help you nail your interview.
Dress to impress: Your appearance is one of; if not the first thing the hiring manager will notice about you. When coming into the interview make sure you are wearing professional clothes, or if you choose to wear your scrubs make sure they are cleaned and pressed. The first impression is often the one that is important in the interview.
Be confident: This one may be hard for some people, especially for those who haven’t done many interviews in the past, but being confident in yourself and your skills will show the person that is interviewing you that you are the right person for the job. Showing up to an interview with no confidence can keep even the most qualified person from getting the position they deserve.
Take advantage of career services: At the American College of Healthcare and Technology, the career services department is here to help you get a job. They have many services that students should take advantage of. We offer mock interviews, resume rewriting, and we match you with a site where you can excel. Working alongside career services will give any student the best chance for them to succeed in getting the job in the career field they have always wanted.
Get to know the place before the interview: Getting to know the place you may be working. Getting the job is important but making sure it is a place where you will succeed as well. Also knowing about the place will impress the interviewer and show them that you aren’t just there for a job, that you did your research. You want to stand out as much as possible, and showing that you went above and beyond in researching the place will help that.
Be on time, and prepared: Getting the interview is important, but being on time and showing up is just as important. Before a big interview show up early with your resume, cover letter and a positive attitude. Arriving early will lead to less stress and making sure that everything is prepared before you start so you can focus solely on impressing in the interview.
