5 Golden Rules for Successful Job Interviews

Interviews take practice and preparation. Follow these five steps to stand out at your next job interview.
1. Research the company
Researching the company before your interview is essential. Failure to do so will be picked up by the interviewer and make you look unprepared, or worse, uninterested in the company.
Visit the company's website to find out exactly what they do. This will help you to have a well-informed conversation - especially when it comes to those classic questions, "why do you want to work for us?" and "what do you know about our company?"
It's also useful to read about the company's history to find out how long they have been around, how they've developed, their current position in the industry and who their competitors are.
If the company does not have a website, do a Google search for them as they may be listed on business directories such as Hotfrog, Cylex Business Directory or Yellow Pages.

2. Know what you can bring to the table
Interviews are about assessing your suitability for a position. This 'assessment' is largely based on how you present yourself during the interview, so be prepared to explain how your strengths relate to the company's goals and business - and how you'll contribute to the success of the company.
Read the job description and 'candidate requirements' carefully. Think of specific examples from your previous roles that will help you demonstrate that you have the skills and competencies needed. Include concrete examples. For example, if you claim to be a great team player, give an example of a situation in which you used this competency and explain how your contribution led to a positive outcome. But don't go into too much detail: limit your answers to two to three minutes - unless the interviewer asks for more detail.

3. Prepare your own questions
It's important to have a few questions of your own to ask at the end of an interview. This will show your enthusiasm, credibility and interest for the job - and the company as a whole.

Good questions to ask include those about career development and training opportunities. You could ask the interviewer to describe the kinds of projects you'd be involved with, or how your performance will be assessed. Or you could ask the what they'd like to be able to say about the person they hire a year from now.
Don't ask about benefits, salary or annual leave, however, as this could give the wrong impression. These issues should be discussed at later point in the recruitment process, for example, in the second interview. That said, if the interviewer asks for your salary expectations, enquire about the salary range they are offering and let them know if you are comfortable with it. Some employers may ask for your last pay slip, so don't inflate your salary - always be sincere about your expectations.

4. Look smart not sharp
Stick to the basic rule of interviews: rather be overdressed than underdressed! Make sure your clothes are clean and ironed. Ladies, keep your cleavage covered and guys, shave beforehand. If you smoke, refrain from having a cigarette a few hours before the interview as the smell can stick to your clothing. And don't overcomplicate things with distracting accessories or excessive make-up. You want the interviewer to focus on your answers, not your eye shadow!

If you have tattoos or piercings, consider how these will impact your assessment during the interview. While 'body decoration' may have nothing to do with your ability to perform on the job, the interviewer may not be as open-minded. To play it safe, remove any visible piercings before the interview and be prepared to only wear them when you are not at work, if you get the job.

5. Be on time and one step ahead
There's never an excuse for arriving late; not even delays with public transport or traffic jams will get you off the hook. In fact, transport problems can trigger a red flag for the interviewer as s/he will be thinking how you'll get to work on time if offered the job.

If you do find yourself running late, call the company to let them know. Ultimately, however, you should aim to arrive 30 minutes early so you have time to catch your breath and go through your pitch in your mind.
And to show your attention to detail, bring along any documentation the interviewer may need. This includes a copy of your ID or passport, relevant certificates or qualifications, portfolios of past projects, as well as a copy of your CV in case the interviewer does not have the original one on hand.

How To Answer Common Job Interview Questions

A job interview can be stressful. Calm your nerves and boost your confidence with answers to these 7 common interview questions.
1. Tell me about yourself
When asking this question, the interviewer wants to get a general picture of who you are and what you've done before. Prepare a one-minute long presentation or 'sales pitch' about yourself, talking about your educational background, previous work experience, key skills and career goals. Don't sound too rehearsed and focus on work-related items - the interviewer doesn't want to hear your life story.

2. What are your strengths?
A strength is something that comes easily to you; something you're good at. You could, for example, talk about your ability to prioritise, solve problems, work under pressure, get along with different types of people, or lead a team. Give an example of a specific situation in which you demonstrated the skill/ability in question. And, unless you have a very tangible example to back up these claims, stay away from clichés like "I'm hard working" or "I am a very quick learner".

3. What are your weaknesses?
Although it's important to be honest, this is not the time to reveal your major character flaws. If you say, for instance, that you have a tendency to be late or argue with customers, the interviewer is not going to be impressed. The trick is to choose a weakness you can overcome. You could say you get nervous when giving presentations, but tackled this by presenting group projects as part of your studies. The interviewer wants to see that you are aware of your areas for growth and that you've taken steps to work on them. Again, stay away from clichés, like "I work too hard". If this is a real weakness, explain the consequences of working too hard (e.g. high stress) and how you addressed this (e.g. allocated more time for a hobby).

4. How have you dealt with angry customers before?
These kinds of questions are called competency questions as they help the interviewer see how you would handle particular situations. You could mention that you use a balanced approach to diffuse difficult situations. Let your interviewer know that even though you're not dominating or aggressive, you're not a push-over either. Say that you listen and go the extra mile for customers. But remember, you need to relate your answers to specific examples to give the interviewer a better idea of your actual competencies.

5. Why do you want to work for us?
Base your answer on the background research you've done about the company prior to the interview. Are you attracted by its reputation or perhaps the career development opportunities it has to offer? Sincerity is important here, and relate your answer to long-term career goals. If you cannot (for example, you simply need a salary to fund your studies), still try to find positive aspects to explain why you want the job, like the nature of the position will allow you to use your excellent customer service skills.

6. What are your salary expectations?
If you request a salary higher than the range for the job, the interviewer will say you're too expensive - and this could cost you the job. If you request a salary lower than the range, the interviewer will say nothing - and you've just lost money. Rather say something along the lines of: "I'm interested in finding a job that is a good fit for me. I'm sure whatever salary you're paying is consistent with the rest of the market" or "what has been budgeted for this position and perhaps we can go from there." Don't be tempted to inflate your salary - many companies will ask for your latest payslip - you don't want to be caught out lying. Lastly, be persistent (but not pushy) - the employer will give in where they can if you're the best candidate for the job.

7. Where do you see yourself in five years' time?
Be careful about saying things like you want to be a manager as that could be the interviewer's job. Tell them in more general terms that you're interested in management and your goal would be to proceed to that level moving forward.
