What do you love about life in your downtown San Antonio apartments? If your first answer isn’t, “living so close to my amazing job,” we’re here to help you change that. In the blog post below, we’ll be sharing some tips that should help you ace your next interview. Of course, getting the interview is up to you. We’re hoping that you’re able to land one, and that you’ll use that chance to make use of these interview tips.
If you’ve been working at the same company for awhile, you might be a little rusty in terms of your interview skills. That’s no fault of your own, but it’s never a bad time to refresh those interview skills in case you feel like getting back into the job hunt.
Now that we’ve gotten the intro out of the way, let’s dive right into the list of interview tips! When you’re done reading through it, please be sure to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at Southtown Flats — the apartments downtown San Antonio residents choose for luxury living.
Do a rehearsal
One of the main reasons that people often get nervous before interviews is that they’re being thrown into a position that they’re unfamiliar with. It’s not often that we dress up nice, go into an office we’ve never been in before, and talk to someone we’ve never met. It’s uncomfortable, and it can throw you off your game. If you want to avoid that, try doing a rehearsal interview with a friend. Go somewhere that you’re unfamiliar with. Dress up like you would for the interview. Treat it like it’s the real deal, because it’ll make you that much more comfortable for the interview when it happens!
Try not to ramble
When interviewers ask you questions, they want quick answers that make sense. It can be hard to avoid rambling about all your experience or all the projects you’ve worked on, but try to avoid doing it if you can. Practice giving short answers and end your sentences instead of letting yourself talk for too long. Interviewers have to ask a lot of questions, and they appreciate a short, concise answer.
Of course you have to dress up for an interview, but you’ll act more naturally if you’re also comfortable. If you’re uncomfortable, you’re going to act stiff and overly professional. Try to find a way to be comfortable, whether it’s by dressing down slightly or investing in a new interview outfit that you’re comfortable in. The little things make all the difference.
