    Tip1: Do practice interviews

    Practice interviews are not real interviews but they are real conversations with people who are hiring managers or HR professionals at companies. You have a lot of opportunities to do practice interviews – with your friends, relatives, career fair counsellor and even recruiters.

    In addition to being good practice for real interviews, they are actually actually good networking experience with people who might be making decisions in the future.

    The main benefit of these interviews is that they are great practice for the real interview, because an interview is inherently a nerve-wracking experience.

    If you have some time to go in and do practice interviews where the stakes aren’t so high, you’re gonna be able to come into the real thing with a lot more confidence and a lot more polish.

    Tip2: Be Friendly and Engaged

    A lot of students will go into a company and if there’s a little bit of time to wait for the interview, they’ll just sit in the waiting room and stare at their phones. People who aren’t hiring managers still do observe the behavior of potential candidates and they talk to those hiring managers.

    In a lot of companies, the hiring decisions don’t come down to just the people you interview with. A lot of the times they’re going to ask anybody who talked to the potential candidate if they had any objections.

    So, if you come into a company and you have a few minutes before the interview, spend some time talking to the person at the front desk. Or if they’re busy at least be polite, greet them, ask how their day is going, and greet them ask how their day is going, and then sit down and do your waiting.

    Don’t walk into the building wearing headphones.

    Tip3: Come prepared with questions your interviewer

    Now you might think that an interview is just a situation where you’re supposed to answer interviewer’s questions because they are figuring out if you are the best candidate for the job. But don’t forget that you’re trying to figure out if the job is right for you as well. additionally coming to the interview with your own questions tells the interviewer that you are engaged, you’re interested in the position, and that you put in a little bit of preparation.

    You might think that having no questions makes you seem like you know everything, and may be that’s a good thing, what it actually does is it makes the interviewer wonder if you are apathetic about the position, and if may be you are just going it for the money.

    One question you should definitely keep in your back pocket is, what opportunities for advancement or additional duties am I going to have at this company?

    The great thing about this kind of a question is that it tells your interviewer that you are willing to be adaptable, flexible and you are willing to learn new things, and that is a great quality to have in someone that you are employing if you are a business owner.
