Interview tips to successfully close an interview

​Making it to the interview round means that you are one step closer to getting the job. You are one of at least 3 or 4 people under consideration for the job. You have nothing to lose if you nail your interview and end it on a high note. If you’ve had a good interview, it could seal the deal. The tips below can help you nail the interview round and ultimately get the job. 

  • Be bold. Be confident.

Being interviewed by a panel of senior staff can be intimidating and daunting to your confidence. Remember that they can also sense your energy – whether you are nervous or not. Try to always be calm and confident. Be bold when answering your questions and give out as much information as you can. 
  • Ask probing questions

It is important to ask questions after an interview especially if you are not clear on certain issues. An example can be to ask questions such as ‘What are the next steps?’ or ‘how soon do you expect to be making a decision?’. Don’t put the interviewer off or come across as arrogant and over-confident. Asking questions about benefits and leave risks you appearing presumptive or self-interested and neither of them are traits that are likely admired.

  • Body language matters 

It is important to make contact with your interviewer; this can be a handshake or eye contact. Thank them for seeing you and for their insightful questions. You don’t want to seem as though you want to escape the place but rather look comfortable.  

  • Remember to follow up 

The interview is not the last step. You need to follow up with your interviewer to check on the selection process. Send a ‘thank you’ note to the people who interviewed you, simply thanking them for their time and their questions and reiterating how excited you are about the opportunity. 

A job interview is a step closer to getting your job. You need to be aware of your body language and your personality. Be yourself and be confident but also conduct yourself in a professional manner.
