Did you know that resumes get interviews? The interview is what gets you the job. I'm Shannon Terry, an interview skills coach and resume writer with Resume Confidence here to help you have a good interview. I believe that having a good interview begins with preparation beforehand and then focus during the interview. First of all, research. Research the company, research the position, using whatever resources that you have at your disposal. Websites, networking with friends, colleagues, newspaper articles, whatnot, use that research to then compile a short list of questions that you can ask your interviewer during your interview. This shows that you are interested and motivated because you've done your homework. Practice common interview questions before you get in front of the interviewer, this will make you a little more at ease, a little more comfortable because you kind of know what you want to say, so that when they throw you that curve ball you don't lose the whole game and of course, arrive early. During the interview, limit your answers to about a minutes length give or take. Make sure you address the company's needs, not your own in your answers. Remember names, nobody does this, we're all kind of bad at this. So when you do remember the name, you'll make a good impression. At the end of the interview, make sure that you grab some business cards, so that you can follow up with correct spelling, job titles, etc. And, state your interest in the position. Do all of these things and you'll have a great interview. I'm Shannon Terry, an interview skills coach and resume writer with Resume Confidence helping you to have a great interview.
