How to ace your next interview
Apr 20, 2022
Job interviews make me really respect celebrities for having to be interviewed all the dang time. How do they remain so chilled out and calm? How are they do they come up with such a perfect answer so quick?
If you, unfortunately, aren't a celeb and you're not used to being grilled with convoluted q's to see if you're a perfect fit for a company or not, here are some interview tips to help you out!
An obvious one, but not one to neglect. We’re blessed that in our community, we can embrace our individuality and don’t need to conform to the traditional corporate uniform, but a little effort can really make you stand out.
Take the time to understand the venue
Its clientele, vibe and normal dress code is a good start on how to present yourself. Be Informed. Read, read, read. Do a google search of the venue, their group if they’re part of one, the owners. Brush up on their expansion plans, their history, and their future. Being familiar with what is important to them will provide you with a sense of what the owners wish to accomplish through their business and how you can be integrated in that plan and be an asset to them.
Be on time. Aim to be there 10-25 minutes early. That buffer will work in your favour, if you hit unexpected traffic, a delayed train or any other possible delays. By turning up early, you’re also showing your reliability and enthusiasm for the role, which is such a positive thing for a potential employer to see.
Corny i know, but you are the greatest gift you can bring to a new job. Your skills, your personality, your passion and drive – they are what make you unique and so important to a new venue.
Most importantly, have fun!
It can be stressful going through the interview process, but by being prepared and putting in a little work you can show the best version of yourself and impress the venue and have the best chance at landing the job.
