It’s always exciting when you are asked to interview for a great new career opportunity. It’s not uncommon for that excitement to simmer into anxiety, however. That’s why it’s important to know how to make a positive impression no matter how nervous you are. We at Primal Management Group have some suggestions that will help you do so.
The preparation starts long before the actual meeting, of course, and your appearance is one of the things on which you must focus. The goal is to project capability, confidence, and professionalism. To do so, our Primal Management Group associates contend that you don’t need a designer wardrobe, but you should wear a clean, well-fitted suit. You should obviously practice careful personal hygiene as well!
Silence your mobile devices and put them away just prior to arrival at your interview. Doing so will help you resist the temptation to scroll through social media or play games as you wait for the meeting to start (it would appear rather unprofessional for you to be caught in the act). Of course, you don’t want notifications to interrupt the ensuing discussion either.
Finally, you should express your enthusiasm for the opportunity by asking plenty of questions during the interview. At Primal Management Group, we think learning as much as you can about the company, as well as its mission and values, will help you develop informed questions to impress the hiring manager.
We wish you the best as you make your next career move!
