Make Your First Impression A Lasting One: Top 5 Interview Tips

No matter how many interviews you may have attended in your career, the process can be nerve-wracking every single time. Companies in Dubai undergoing the executive search process go to great lengths to test you during the interview so that they can make the right decision. You need to be prepared.

While attending interviews, one must be well read, charming and confident. Being prepared can take you a long way and give you an edge over other candidates.

The best part of an interview is that you are in control. The interviewer only knows the information you have shared in your resume or verbally. Hence you don’t have to worry at all.

Here are our top 5 interview tips that can help you bag your dream job in Dubai.

1. Research About The Company

Before you attend an interview you must know a few basic details about the company like what are the products and services offered by the company, which markets do they operate in, who are their main competitors and more. Use these details while answering the questions asked during the interview. Knowing these makes you look interested in the company and keen on getting the job.

2. Be Well Versed With The Job Description

You should know every aspect of the job you are applying for. If there is any point in the job description that you does not apply to you, it is imperative that you let the interviewer know about the same.

3. Prepare Yourself For The Obvious Questions

Why are you looking to change your job?

Why makes you think that  you will fit in this position?

How can you contribute to our team?

These are the most commonly asked questions in an interview. Being prepared with good answers to these questions can help you ease your nerves and come across as a confident person.

4. SELL Yourself

Remember that you are going to an interview to get the job. Not to view the office or to decide if you want the job or not.

Focus on representing yourself in the best possible way so that you get the job offer. You can always decide if you want to take up the job or not once you have been selected.

5. End The Interview Well

Don’t be eager to simply get done with the interview. Remember to ask any questions you have about the job at the end of the interview. Also, thank the interviewer for their time and tell them that you are very excited to hear from them soon.
