Interview Tips #1. Why Didn’t Pass – Common Mistakes

One of the common mistakes why some of the applicants didn’t get hired is because they are not well-prepared for the job interview, they are not knowledgeable about the process of interview, or the interview itself. We have the old saying “failure to prepare is preparing to fail”, it is very important to be prepared especially when you are applying your dream job. 

How to prepare yourself? No need to go to salon and hire a make up artist, or have a “hair rebond”, manicure and pedicure, you can do it all by yourself, and it only add point to the interviewer, the important is how you prepare your mind in this event.

Interview Tips #2. Professional Dress

A dress code should wear, dress as if you are a successful man. In order for you to get the attention of the interviewer is you should wear clothes that is professional, a business attire. Do not dress as if you are going to the market and buy a fish.  Make up your mind, you’re going to have a job interview and you will meet the big bosses! Look smart in your dress! 

Some formal dress doesn’t have to be expensive, you can wear a coat and tie, a leather shiny shoes, a nice watch, and of course, during the interview, do not forget to bring your own “pen and notebook”, why? It is because it adds impression because the interviewer may think you are an organized person. The interviewer will think about why you are bringing a “pen and note” in during the interview.

Interview Tips #3. Watch Your Gestures

You are wearing clothes as if you  are successful and smart, now act professional, behave well. Watch your posture, your gestures. Stand and seat like a real gentleman, smile like a real gentleman. But do not act as if you are a “soldier”, stomach in, chest out, it doesn’t work that way, just relax your shoulder, have a natural breathing, watch your language. Use appropriate language, when necessary try to add some humor, but not too much funny.

Interview Tips #4. Look -Out! What a Wonderful Face!

Yes, look out! LOOKS. How do you look like during the interview, for women a simple make up will help. Do not put lot of make up as if you are going to a dance party or in a fashion show, wear a too much red lip stick and you will look like a clown so the interviewer will laugh at you and you wonder why, haha. You are going to have a job interview not in a talk show. 

We have a conclusion about smiling, if you smile with a stranger, he think you want to make friend with him. The interviewer is a stranger, right? Then smile, it really add confidence and make you relax and comfortable during question and answer. The interviewer may think you are easy to be with.

Interview Tips #5. Review, Read and Learn More

After you have chosen the proper clothes and how do you look like, and you master the skills of behaving well, you should now read some things about the company, the owner, president, CEO, VIP’s, major shareholders (optional), history, its business, its products or services, its vision, mission, goal, everything about the company. Just search it online, and just spend some time reading and learn so that you are well prepared during the question and answer.

Update: While searching for the company online and you studied it well. Do not forget to memorize what you have written in your CV, most of the questions are based on what you have written in your resume.

Think about this, what’s the sense of beauty, of your dress, of your nice postures and gestures if you don’t know how to answer the questions during the interview? Got it? Be smart, gave the interviewer an specific answer, if the question need a short answer, say for example, “yes or no” just answer Yes or No. And if the question need an explanation, do not hesitate to add more in your answers, but be specific and confident enough to prove what you’re saying.


In summary, here are the tips on how to prepare yourself in any job interview;

1. Learn from the common mistakes. 
2. Have a professional dress, or what we call it “business attire”.
3. Watch your gestures, act smartly.
4. Do not forget to smile, it removes nervous.
5. Do not forget to review, read and learn the “company profile”.
