Tips for Making the Best Impression at a Job Interview Video

Tips for Making the Best Impression at a Job Interview Video Transcript

Any applicant knows that it's important to make the best impression at a job interview. Watching this video will establish the fundamentals of a successful interview from before you go in to when you finish.

  1. First Impressions
    • The first impression in the first few seconds can determine your overall success in the job interview. Establish direct eye contact, and be sure to deliver a firm handshake, though not too firm.
    • As you will understand after completion of the video, a relaxed body posture is also important. This can be done throughout the job interview by taking a deep breath while leaning back into your chair.
  2. Asking Questions
    • Asking questions is vital to making a good impression in a job interview. It's okay to take a moment to respond to questions, and you can ask for clarification when necessary. Timing matters in a job interview, so take a moment to think and reply. If you have questions to ask, wait about two thirds of the way into the interview.
    • Be careful about asking questions. Try not to tell the interviewer how to run a business, and be discreet about the questions you ask. For example, instead of asking if people work long hours, ask about what the management style is like.
  3. Messaging, Qualifications and Salary Negotiation
    • Establish what qualifications the interviewer is looking for. You should pair these requirements with your skills for the best impression.
    • Complete your messaging at end of the job interview. If they haven't asked about a skill, mention it. Delay salary discussion until later in the hiring process if possible.
  4. Completing the Job Interview
    • Ask the interviewer if there are any issues about your qualifications, and address these. Make sure you've cleared up any issues at the job interview. If you heard about new skills they want, ask about them.
    • Ask directly for the job if you want it, which is vital to any sales impression. You should close the deal and express interest in the position at the job interview.
