Ready for your next interview?

Check out these tips to help you feel prepared and confident so you can land the job during your next interview!

1- Are you dressed to impress? Check out this [great post] (https://www.jobcase.com/conversations/60d77b2f-6640-5331-8816-dca310ec58bf?from=https%253A%252F%252Fwww.jobcase.com%252Fcommunity) on what to wear during your next interview! Make sure to lay your clean clothes out the night before and check for wrinkles.

2- What to bring? Write down 3-5 questions you want to ask the employer during the interview in a notebook and pack it with your things, along with a few copies of your resume (just in case). Not sure what to ask? Check [these] (https://www.themuse.com/advice/51-interview-questions-you-should-be-asking) 50 questions out! Want to know more about the job’s culture? Then [these] (https://www.jobcase.com/conversations/d98a6946-b042-5278-8899-45b1326fd186) are the questions for you!

3- What will you say? Use these [conversation starters tricks] (https://www.jobcase.com/conversations/6d46f61d-c53b-5ec5-9d7c-69cc61713f6a) to help you break the ice and fight those potentially awkward silent moments.

4- Did you do your research? Make sure you spend a little time going on the company’s website. Find the specifics of the position you are applying to. Make a list of the skills, knowledge, and professional and personal qualities that are required by the employer and those that are critical for success in the job. Then make another and list all of YOUR qualifications. Draw a line connecting the two that match up. Make it a point to casually highlight these things during the interview. Prove that you are a great fit for them! Also be sure to check out the company’s mission and anything important about them make a note of it. This will help you prepare to answer interview questions about the company should they come up.

5- Did you practice? A few days before, make sure to practice answering some interview questions [such as these] (https://www.themuse.com/advice/how-to-answer-the-31-most-common-interview-questions). This will help give you a chance to prepare and practice answering, and will also help boost your confidence.
