Interviewing By Logan Saenz & Hayden Chall Add a title for the presentation
The Job Interview • To prepare for the interview: • Do your homework. • Get organized. • Plan to make a good first impression. • Anticipate questions and plan appropriate responses. • Think positively. Add a theme, background picture, or color to the presentation
Standard Interview Questions • Some examples are: • “Tell me about yourself.” • “What do you know about this company?” • “Why does this job opening interest you?” • “Do you prefer working alone or with others?” • “How well do you work under pressure?” • “What do you want to be doing in five years?” • “Why should I hire you?”
Good Questions to Ask Employers • Some examples are: • “How would you describe the responsibilities of the position?” • “How would you describe a typical week/day for this position?” • “Whom does this position report to? If I am offered the position, can I meet him or her?” • “If I am extended a job offer, how soon would you like me to start?”
What Is Said Without Words • An upright, confident posture reflects your sense of self-worth. • Eye contact shows you are listening and are interested in what the interviewer has to say. • A smile shows that are you relaxed and confident. Keep your facial expressions friendly, calm, relaxed, and positive. • A firm handshake conveys that you are professional and enthusiastic. Avoid a weak or overly aggressive handshake. On the next slide, fill it with pictures of interviews taking place.
What Is Said Without Words (Continued) • Leaning slightly forward toward the interviewer conveys that you are interested. Leaning back can give the opposite impression. • Be aware of the interviewer’s body language to help you sense when you are losing the person’s attention or when you are going into too much detail.
Common Errors Avoid these interview errors • Poor eye contact. • No goal. • Poor appearance. • No prepared questions. • Lack of enthusiasm. • Asking about the salary and benefits too soon. • Not asking for the job.
Interview don’ts • Don’t be late. • Don’t chew gum or smoke. • Don’t lay thing on the interviewers desk. • Don’t act like a know it all. • Don’t be rude. • Don’t dress sloppy. • Don’t fidget. • Don’t have a negative attitude. • Don’t say you will take anything instead of describing the job you want. • Don’t try to read the notes on the interviewers desk. • Don’t lie. • Don’t waste time in the interview by talking too much.

“Food for Thought” ? 1. Assume that you applied for a job but were not selected for the position. • Should you abandon your efforts to obtain a job with that particular employer? Why or why not? You should not because if the person chosen for the job can not take the job you might be the next choice. And if you ask what you did wrong then you learn from it that’s how every interview is a learning experience. 2.What can you gain from seeking an evaluation of your interview performance from an interviewer who rejected you? 3. In what ways is each interview a learning experience?
