@berybery:  Take a deep breath and be calm.

Don’t be afraid to pause before you answer questions. Take a moment to collect your thoughts and then answer.

Try to maintain eye contact with your interviewer.

Finally, just be yourself!

I had two interviews this week one on Monday and a follow up yesterday. If you know your stuff and are right for the job, it’ll come across in your interview.

Best of luck and let us know how it goes!!

@berybery:  Both went really really well. According to the recruiter they “loved me” but they still have one more candidate to come back in.

The other candidate has more experience, but I’m hoping they will go off potential culture fit and not just experience.

I should hear next week, so fingers crossed.

@berybery:   I feel like I should have that tattooed on me lol

RED is not a good color to have tattooed, so I wouldn’t recommend it!

Good Luck.

 

I love these two lines

After you answer a question ask “Did that answer your question?”

This gives them a chance to ask more about something you briefly touched on, and in case you didnt answer the way you were expecting, you can clarify

And at the end ask “Do you have any concerns about what we discussed today or my resume regarding me doing this job successfully?”  

This allows you to directly refute any issues they may have. If it was a misunderstanding or a real concern you can lay to rest, this could make the difference in you getting the job!
