The interview is face to face conversation between the interviewer and interviewee following are Interview tips which will definitely help you to make your interview successful.



1.Practice and Prepare

Practice your responses is a very important tip for the job interview like questions and answers most employers ask. Think of concrete examples you can use to highlight your skills. The easiest way to do this is to make a list of the job requirements and match them to your experience. Providing evidence of your successes is a great way to promote your candidacy.

2.Research the company

Do your homework about the employer and the industry, so you are ready for the interview question like their products, turnover, employee ratio etc. Try to relate what you have learned about the company when answering questions.

3. Practice good nonverbal communication

 It’s about demonstrating confidence like standing straight, making eye contact and connecting with a firm handshake. That first nonverbal impression can be a great beginning or quick ending to your interview.

4. Get ready ahead of time

Don’t wait until the last minute to pick out an interview outfit, print extra copies of your resume, or find a notepad and pen. Have one good interview outfit ready, so you can interview on short notice without having to worry about what to wear. When you have an interview lined up, get everything ready the night before. Make sure your interview attire is neat, tidy and appropriate for the type of firm you are interviewing with. Bring a nice portfolio with extra copies of your resume. Include a pen and paper for note-taking.

5. Don’t talk too much

Telling the interviewer more than he needs to know could be a fatal mistake. When you have not prepared ahead of time, you may ramble when answering interview questions, sometimes talking yourself right out of the job. Prepare for the interview by reading through the job posting, matching your skills with the position’s requirements and relating only that information.

6. Be on time 

Be on time for the interview. On time means at least 20 minutes early. If need be, take some time to drive to the interview location ahead of time so you know exactly where you are going and how long it will take to get there. Give yourself a few extra minutes to visit the restroom, check your outfit, and calm your nerves. Here’s more on preparing for an interview.

7. Try to stay calm

During the job interview, try to relax and stay as calm as possible. Remember that your body language says as much about you as your answers to the questions. Proper preparation will allow you to exude confidence. Maintain eye contact with the interviewer. Listen to the entire question (active listening) before you answer, and pay attention you will be embarrassed if you forget the question.

8. Show what you know

Try to relate what you know about the company when answering questions.  When discussing your career accomplishments, match them to what the company is looking for.

9. Don’t be too familiar

The interview is a professional meeting to talk business. This is not about making a new friend. Your level of familiarity should least with the interviewers. It is important to bring energy and enthusiasm to the interviewer and to ask questions, but do not overstep your place as a candidate looking for a job

10. Follow up the interview

Always follow-up with a thank you note. You can also include any details you may have forgotten to mention during your interview. If you interview with multiple people sends each one personal note. Send your thank you note (email is fine) within 24 hours of your interview.
