It’s not enough just to have a perfect resume that communicates who you are and what kind of employee you could be to a potential employer. That’s just the beginning of the process. A great resume will set you apart from other candidates and get you selected for an opportunity to interview for that position. Once you receive that call as an invitation for the interview, the rest is up to you.
Because interviewing is a skill, you can only improve your style and acumen with practice. College and university career services offices typically offer mock interviews and interview workshops. But you can always prevail upon family or friends to help you prepare. ASK!!! Ask too for genuine feedback that will be helpful in working out the kinks. Practice is important too in assuaging fears and nervousness. However, a degree of tension is beneficial toward maintaining a level of alertness that causes you to sit up straight and forward in your seat, leaning toward the interviewer. The idea is to strike a balance between poise/calm and energy/enthusiasm.
