8. Be polite. Indeed, you have to become confident, but not to the extent of being arrogant. Observe proper attitude and manner in approaching every people you meet during the job interview. Regardless of the appearance and position of the person you’re talking to, maintain appropriate behavior. When you’re asking for something, have the habit saying “please…”, “May I…”, or “is it okay if…” Add also personification to your greetings by mentioning their first name with proper acknowledgement such as miss, or mister. This would show that you put importance in remembering their name but still respect them. Take these tips. You need every advantage to emerge victorious from other applicants.

9. Listen very well to the interviewer. Don’t get too much distracted with the overwhelming nervousness you feel, take a deep breath and listen to what the interviewer is saying. If you didn’t hear the question, don’t be shy to request for a repeat. You have to hear clearly first each question in order for you to give applauding answers. It would also help if you’d watch the interviewer’s hand and body gestures for you t understand well his or her point.

10. Answer clearly and confidently. Use the adrenaline rush triggered by your nervousness in answering to the questions. Don’t take too much time in thinking for the answers. Just say what you think is the most appropriate to say. If you’ve done your research on the company’s background and the job’s functions and requirements, you’d know the key points to press for your answers. In addition, make sure that the interviewer can hear your answers clearly. Use proper intonation in saying words and phrases. Show through your confident voice that you’re indeed the one meant for the job.

11. Maintain a good eye contact and posture. Experts recommend maintaining a good eye contact when talking to the interviewer. A good eye contact will show sincerity to what you say. So, whenever you answer a question for job interview, face the interviewer. Look him or her in the eyes. Don’t be afraid to reveal who you are through your eyes. Instead, use this on your advantage. Try to assess if he or she is contented with your answers through his or her eye movements and gestures. You don’t need a psychology degree or mind reading powers to do so. It only takes courage, guts, and common sense. Next>>>
