The key to landing a job is that you really have to want it.
If you half heartily go into an interview not really happy with where you are applying or with an attitude that expresses you are not really concerned if they don’t call you, than you can kiss that job goodbye. You may as well not have applied.
The way to land any job even if it isn’t the exact job you want, is to go into the interview with a positive attitude and a real expectation that you are already talking to someone who works where you will be working as soon as they hire you.
Yep, you have to think positive, believe that you are the one they will be calling. Express how the job interests and excites you and that you can’t wait to jump in and get going on your first day. Speaking of which, you must be prepared to stay when you answer the question of when can you start with an enthusiastic how about right now!
You see, its your enthusiasm and you qualifications that shine through to someone conducting an interview. Your answers and actions will stand out above the rest of the applicants and they will see you as a motivated team player who is ready to work.
That’s how you get almost any position you apply for. Now if someone comes across to them as being just a little more motivated or qualified than you, than you might lose that one by just a little but the practice you gain will certainly help you during your next interview.
Now if you are the type that has a hard time talking to new people, just try this.
Pretend that the interviewer is a great old friend that you haven’t seen in years and you are at lunch talking about you and your work, That should help you get over any bad case of nerves you could get.
So now get out there and land that position you always wanted. It’s not only easy, but now you know how!
