How to Have a Good Interview

  • Making a good first impression is important to getting the interview started well. Smile, shake hands firmly and be polite.
  • If you are not maintaining good eye contact, the interviewer might think you are not very interested in the job. A healthy amount of eye contact (don’t stare!) is important to show that you are interested and personable.
  • Overcome your nerves with a deep breath or two. Nerves can make you talk too fast, ramble when giving your answers or appear anxious. Good breathing and a positive phrase or two that you keep in mind can help you relax.
  • Do you need a question repeated or rephased? It’s okay to ask.
  • Don’t worry about pausing when answering questions. It’s okay to collect your thoughts and to think about your answer before speaking. Try to keep your answers concise.
  • Don’t be tempted to exaggerate or lie in your answers. Honesty is a good policy.
  • Still nervous? Remember that an interview is to determine whether you are a good fit for the company. Be positive and work to build rapport with the person who is interviewing you.
