Working on Your Interview Techniques:

Monday, August 17, 2009 | comments

Work on your interview techniques especially the first few minutes, because often decisions are made as you sit down. Make sure your hand shake is dry and firm. Maintain good eye contact, while wearing a warm smile with a good body posture. Introduce yourself in a relaxed and confident manner. Think of how to sit, where to place your hands and your opening words. You need to appear to be say you are the right person for the job hence be alert and look confident even if you don't feel it. Get there early, no excuses are ever good enough for being late. Ease your nervousness by talking to anyone like the receptionist or the secretary just before you enter the interview room. It'll get your brain in the right gear.

Many of us, who are still in school or college, consider getting involved in extra-curricular activities as a waste of time. Maybe you are a school captain, treasurer to the drama club or a secretary to the school debate club but these positions are taking up to much of your time, hence putting a lot of pressure in catching up with your class work and you are thinking of opting out. Today am here to tell you not to quit just yet.

Let me inform you not to give up on these extra-curricular activities. They are very useful in sharpening your leadership qualities and can prove to be very vital in future, especially when you start assuming leadership position. These leadership engagements will come in handy when you join the job market, for one of the major requirement employers look for is experience. I’ve noted that this mostly affects the fresh graduates who have no hands-on experience in the job market. So let me encourage you to get involved now in these extra-curricular engagements and for sure you will have an edge over the other fresh graduates going for the same job or career.

Also since most of these clubs and groups involve team work, they will sharpen your communication skills and depending on the role you play, will also improve your management skills. Participating in this activities prove you are diligent, organized and versatile. These same qualities can also determine if you will be a good employer, if you were to start your own business.

Note that being employed or running your own business requires one to be all rounded. Participating in extra-curricular activities and taking leadership roles prove you can be a good leader.
