Top Tips to Have Best Job Interview: Tips and Guidance

Updated on December 28, 2010

"The difficult part in an argument is not to defend one's opinion, but rather to know it." (Andre Marois, 1885-1967, French author)

Well, its that time again. Time to prepare yourself for the journey that lies ahead. It can be a little scary, but with the proper preparation you will do much better. Below are some general tips to get your focus on track. With a few interviews you'll be on your way! Here i am going to write some tips and guidance for your job interview!

While you're actively job searching, it's important to be prepared for a phone interview on a moment's notice. You never know when a recruiter or a networking contact might call and ask if you have a few minutes to talk. Review these tips for advice on how to pull off your phone interview without a hitch.

For personal interview research the company and the position if possible, as well, the people you will meet with at the interview. Review your work experiences. The worst thing an interview candidate can do it to not make eye contact with the interviewer. Casual eye contact gives the impression that you are confident, honest and comfortable. There is a pretty good chance a lie told in a job interview will either be sensed by the interviewer or uncovered down the road. Be honest during the interview and it will be to your benefit.

Don't Over Talk. Going on about yourself can backfire during a job interview. Answer the interview questions honestly, but know when to stop talking.

Always be yourself during a job interview. This will put both you and the interviewer at ease. Some interviewer can tell when someone is trying too hard. An interviewer wants an accurate representation of who they will be getting for the job.

Prepare a response so you are ready for the question "What do you know about our company. Know the interviewer's name and use it during the job interview. If you're not sure of the name, call and ask prior to the interview. Try to relate what you know about the company when answering questions.

Listen to the entire question before you answer and pay attention - you will be embarrassed if you forget the question!

Before Your Job Interview:

· Learn all you can about the company or organization

· Be prepared to answer and ask questions

· Prepare your clothes for your interview

· Prepare papers for your interview

During Your Job Interview:

· Arrive 10 to 15 minutes early

· Treat all people you encounter with professionalism and kindness

· maintain a professional image

· Don't chew gum or smell like smoke

· Be aware of your non-verbal behaviors

· Listen very carefully to each question
