Prepare Yourself For A Successful Job Interview

Having been interviewed for hundreds of jobs because almost every job that Able gets as a Host, Presenter, MC or Actress requires an interview, meeting, or audition; it’s an essential skill to have to give your best first impression to the interviewer to get the job.

There are many types of people and many go about this process differently. Some ease into the interview process slowly wanting the interviewee to feel at ease while others are straight-shooters who after a brief introduction will go straight to the point of what they want/need from you to see whether you can comply.

Knowing how to handle various types of personalities in order to answer their questions smartly and confidently is essential to acing the interview.

Having good listening skills, understanding the underlying message from the interviewer as well as answering their questions with clarity is essential to know how to best answer them. You must also showcase your personality during the interview process as most experienced interviewers look for the right personality whom they can train for the job and do not always choose the most qualified with poor interpersonal skills.

In smaller companies, interviewers may not be experienced or great communicators so the interviewee might need to ask them to repeat the question asked to understand what the question is.

Practice The Right Mentality To Ace A Job Interview

The mindset of anyone who is successful is based on resilience and a proactive attitude. Being positive is great but how are you linking your personality, past experience, knowledge, and interpersonal skills to turn small talk into a wonderful collaboration? You need to see yourself as giving to the interviewer as much as they are giving to you.

Yes, you are seeking a job and their willingness to open the position for you, but what are you giving them in return? What is your self-worth and self-esteem when it comes to showcasing your best self to others? The interviewing process is similar to tennis where the conversation [like a ball being hit] bounces back and forth to see how it plays out. It’s not about winning, it’s about conveying who you are through authentic communications and balancing the needs required by the interviewer.
