5 Tips you should follow before you go and during your interview for a new job:

  1. Try to be there on time, get up earlier and get ready without stress and hurry. If you have a Skype interview then you MUST check: your internet connection (if it is not the best go to your friend’s or to a internet café because you do not want to fail your interview due to the bad connection), make sure your camera works properly (the recruiter has to be sure that he/she is speaking with real candidate), check your profile photo and message on skype profile, it must not contain offensive or in appropriate content.
  1. Dress yourselves appropriate, without any striking details and eccentric hairstyles and makeup. (if the interview is for a job in the field of art, then a dose of eccentricity is desirable)
  1. Try to look focused, not haggard and indecisive. If you think that you do not have a clear image of what you want to do and in which areas you will be the best, or if you are not in the position to choose, do not let it be obvious.
  1. Do not speak ill of your previous employer. None of your prospective employers want to hear that, because that means that they can be found in the same position.
  1. Be calm, but not too much, try to find a golden middle, you should not seem neither too tense nor too relaxed. Try to look interested, not passive. Try to ask logical and sensible questions, but only when the recruiter finishes with questions.

Do not forget that the interview assesses not only your knowledge, but also your behavior, attitude, demeanor, manner of communication and appreciation of the recruiters. All of this is included into the final decision, will you go into the next round of selection and reach the goal or not!
