Interviews and What Not

The situation of the job marketplace of the world has changed. Now more than ever, there can be no denying to the fact that there is greater competition going on especially for people who are planning to land in a job.

Landing in a job can either be very difficult or it can be very easy for others. It all boils down to the different factors you have with yourself and how the employers would like to have these factors, as an addition to the pool of talents that they already have. Believe it or not, these factors are seen best during the interview portion.


Many people regard the interview portion as the “make it or break it” part of one’s career life. The importance and preparation for it cannot be emphasized any further. If you really want to be accepted in the job that you want, you must consider training for job interviews.

How to prepare for it?

Interviews usually revolve much about you, not the company. So you can expect that there will be no right or wrong answers. However, employers would want to elicit the most honest answers from you, thus it is advised that you must share what is asked of you. Sometimes, especially when the job you are applying for entails much technicality, employers would ask you to demonstrate or perform a certain task. Return demonstration or performances could actually pull up your chances of hiring, should you have done it flawlessly.

It is advised then that you do a little review, brush yourself up with confidence and answer the questions in all honesty. If you do all these, there’s no doubt you will get the job that you want.

Post-interview agony

Agony and nervousness are the most common perceived feelings by applicants most especially when the announcement of the interview results have taken a little while.

Announcement delays is a common thing, a common reason for this is there may have been too many applicants and the company or the employer has to trim it down, and really choose who is the most deserving one to get the job.

If you are into the same dilemma, there is no other better way to do than to wait for the results. You may call the company once in a while to check on them, but be careful because it might be a turn off for them if you overdo it.

But if it’s already such a long time since you last heard from them, then it’s time to re-evaluate your options. You have to assess how you fared during the interview, whether you did great or just so-so. If you think you did great, then by all means check the company again, but if you think you didn’t do great, then it’s time to look for other options.

Once you qualified to be interviewed into another company, take note of the things you could have done better from your last interview. This will surely help you.

But then again, you would not be doing much of the above-said things if, in the first place, you made sure your interview was excellent, right?
