Five Key Interviewing Skills Training Tips
Ask Your Interview Coach To Teach You These Critical Skills

Preparing for an interview is not difficult, but it does take an eye for detail. That's why you need interviewing skills training that is targeted at very specific, granular strategies aimed at overcoming the interviewing roadblocks put in your way by the situation. Here are five interviewing skills training tips that give you the inside story about how to prepare for an interview and perform like a pro once you get there.

Interviewing Skills Training Tips

  1. Read the job description and write your resume to reflect everything they are asking for in the position. Do this and you automatically answer the question, "Will they think I am a good fit?" You will be.

  2. Make sure you are sensitive to personal cultural and company cultural differences with the interviewer. This is critical so you don't appear socially awkward and obtuse.

  3. Use your emotional intelligence skills to read the interviewer and adapt to that person. This will help the interviewer feel comfortable and help you build rapport.

  4. Smile during the interview at least two times. Once when you first greet the interviewer, and once when you shake hands to leave. Do that and you dramatically increase your odds of being liked. Smiling shows you are friendly, can get along with people and that you are enthusiastic about the position.

  5. Now is not the time to be overly humble. You don't want to come across as an arrogant, narcissistic jerk either, but simply laying low and hoping that the interviewer sees how great you are just won't work. You have to explicitly tell them how you can fit the exact bill for the job offered.

Now that you know these five interviewing skills training insights and strategies I know you will be feeling more confident in how you prepare and perform. Remember, you gain confidence from your competence. And your competence is a direct reflection of the quality, length and depth of your preparation. Work hard now and you will smile when you get in the interview.
