If you are going to a job interview these following days, here are some tips on how to make a good first impression. It is really tough to be perfect during a job interview, especially if you’ve been out of the job market for quite some time. Things have definitely changed and are constantly changing, so try to make use of any reasonable advice.

You should try to remember that the interview is a form of communication. It is not just a question-answer ball tossing. Therefore, you need to go to that job interview ready to communicate, to listen and respond to questions and requests, to look for gestures and signs, just as every typical every day communication would normally involve.

No point to mention that you need to look smart, especially if you are applying for an executive position. People in serious business tend to look for smart looking guys but do always look for brains. An important thing you should have imprinted on your mind is “Smile and be friendly!”.

Try to stay upright. Do not lean on the chair back. Do not try to imply inability to survive alone without anybody’s help. Do not cross your legs or hold your arms. They tend to signify self-locking and fear of opening up to people.

Do not make the interviewer feel uncomfortable talking to you because this will make a very bad impression and will result in your being turned down as the right candidate.

Try to show, using both words and body language, that you are the right applicant for the job opening. Try to look confident, but don’t over do it. Being too self-confident may be annoying if overacted.

You need to persuade the interviewer that you have all applicable attributes and you are perfectly qualified for the job. Try to identify the added value you may contribute to the company. This always works and suggests that you are capable of constructive thinking and creativity.

What comes really handy for people who are to attend a job interview is to being able to state their plans and longterm goals. Do not forget that interviewers may be trying to give you a hard time by asking you provoking questions.

Furthermore, try not to show that it is really, really important to you to get that jobs. Try to play cool. Do not look desperate and needing.

Be prepared to present yourself as professional, confident and skillful.

Try to show that you are a fast learner and are not afraid to work, and don’t forget, no matter what others say, that hard work always pays well.
