Why People Fail in Job Interviews

TalkShop job interview tipsWith the dearth of jobs these days, a call for an interview can come rarely. When a call comes through, one should make the most of the situation. A candidate is given just a short time to shine, so he must learn to position himself in the best light.

Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO points out what makes people fail during interviews, as a guide for applicants for better presentation and projection:

1. The first 30 seconds matters most. Come on time, look professional, and practice good manners. Greet the interviewer, smile, do not sit unless invited, do not shake hands unless the interviewer reaches his hand out to you.

2. Be aware of your body language. An interviewer can spot a competent, confident person in an instant through his bearing.

3. Be ready with your Unique Selling Proposition- what makes you unique and able to add value to the organization.

4. Know the job and the company you are applying with, including the industry to which it belongs.

5. Be ready to ask questions about the company.

An organization looks for competent people who will fit in the organization, work well with the team, and make their own contribution. Be ready to project these as you sell yourself.
