All your life, you’ve made your way through high school and college because you’ve nursed a dream of following a certain career. And anyone who went through this is sure that graduation will always be their end goal.
Of course, there’s more to a job application than crafting the perfect resume. The ultimate deciding factor, after all, lies in successfully “selling” yourself to your prospective employer. These are what we call job interviews, where you have to convince human resource managers, along with your future bosses, why you deserve the job.
It’s a challenging process, after all.
Whether you choose to rest or start working right after college, this guide is here to teach fresh graduates like you how to prepare for job interviews!
Preparing for the Interview:
Want a general view of a job interview? This super quick meme-filled guide contains an overview of what you can do to make any job better in the long run.
Catching your dream company with a well-decorated resume eye doesn’t necessarily mean you’re off the hook – knowing what to post and what not to include in your social media accounts can still make an impact on your entire job application process. So make sure that your social media accounts are still “clean” before AND after the job interview!
Crafting the perfect cover letter will not only catch your employer’s attention but will also be some of the querries your interviewer will ask you about.
Did you finally receive that call but didn’t realize you’ve scheduled something else on that day? Don’t panic – it’s not yet the end of the world! There are ways for you to reschedule that much-awaited interview without giving up the opportunity or offending your interviewer.
During the Interview:
Questions like “Tell me about yourself” and “What can you offer in this company?” aren’t just your typical everyday questions – these are some of the questions that your employers will ask, and how you answer them will affect your job application as a whole.
If you need to know how we can craft a solution to some of these questions, this creative guide will teach you how to answer those deceiving questions at the top of the hat!
Believe it or not, what you wear on the day of your interview plays a major factor in nabbing any job. First impressions, after all, are very important. So here’s a quick guide on what to do to spiff up your wardrobe on the big day.
The challenge of any job interview is to convince your interviewers why they should hire you. But as long as you keep these tips in mind, you’re bound to create more impact on others in the process!
While Waiting for Interview Results:
The long wait can seem daunting at most, but you don’t have to check your phone for texts or missed calls every single day. There are plenty of things you can do while you’re still job-hunting and you don’t have to worry about them in-between.
If you’re eyeing a certain company that isn’t opening its doors to employers yet, this guide is here to show you what you can do to pass the time instead!
