October 04, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 147

Let's face it, sometimes your qualifications just don't matter, a good performance at your job interview will get you the job, you answer the right question at the right time and ask the right question at the right time. Below I will show you 5 things that you can say to really impress your interviewer and they WILL help you get the job.

1. Be Polite

Make sure that you say please and thank you, as an adult you would think that this would be common sense but when you're nervous the simplest things can be forgotten. If you are asked if you would like a drink, simply say "yes, please" or "no, thank you".

2. I can contribute....

Do your research and mention something specific that you can help with, it can be something simple such as, I notice that your company only uses 2 layers of security software, I can integrate a third for you. These types of offers will be appreciated as well as you being specific and doing your research.

3. Compliment them

A genuine compliment can go a long way, mention something that the company has done well recently, trust me they will love a relevant, genuine compliment.

4. When can you start?

When you are asked when you are available to start, say right away, even if you are not available just say it, I like to look at my watch and say "now". Employers love this attitude, it shows that you will say yes if offered the job and are enthusiastic about starting work.

5. What do I do now

Make sure you do the things that you are asked to do, if your future employer asks you to email some references to them, do it as soon as you get home. These kinds of test can be the difference between getting the job and losing out to somebody who was more pro-active.

So there they are, 5 top tips, follow these and you will be head and shoulders above the rest of the potential employees.

I guarantee that if you keep these 5 things in your mind when you go to your next networking jobs interview then you will at least be shortlisted for the job. The reason that these things work is because a lot of people are too scared or shy to actually do these things and try to pro actively beat others to the job, well guess what? it is a dog eat dog world (especially in this industry) and you won't get anywhere by being passive.
