The question of the century, how can candidates get through these tough interviews? The answer relies heavily on creating an impact. Wowing the interviewer all depends on how you prepped yourself beforehand and how you present it altogether when you face your panel.

First impressions are a huge factor. The moment the interviewer catches a glimpse of you, a judgment is already made. Remember that representing yourself in terms of what you know goes hand-in-hand with how you look and carry yourself as well.

Be presentable.

When applicants and interviewers enter the room, both are expectant of the other party. The truth lies in the details on how these candidates present themselves verbally and non-verbally. Always dress to impress and, more importantly, for the job that you’re applying for.

Know the job.

When going to an interview, it’s important to note not just the job title you are applying for, but what the job demands from the applicants, too.

Know yourself.

Your resume is the holy grail of the interview. Make sure that you know exactly what you wrote and what you can offer the company. It’s no lie that the interviewers judge you through your overall assessment and what you can bring to the table.

Boost your confidence.

Making an impact relies on how your mannerisms speak about you. It’s important to remain cool and confident to ease through the interview. After all, how you feel about yourself is how you want others to perceive about you. While exuding confidence gives off poise and credibility, humility and genuineness of character are just as important as one’s skills.

Prep time and peppiness can definitely raise your application higher in the interviewer’s eyes. But, wowing them also comes in with your innate personality – come in the room as you are and the rest will follow.
