Slide 2: PREPARATION FOR THE JOB INTERVIEW Source: GlaxoSmithKline Philippines & Randall S. Hansen, Ph.D. Slide 3: Decide what to wear days before the interview. Being well-groomed and having a good appearance is essential. Have a good night's sleep, eat a healthy meal and allow plenty of travel time. 1. Be physically and mentally prepared What to Wear? : What to Wear? Conservative two-piece business suit (solid dark blue or grey is best) Conservative long-sleeved shirt/blouse (white is best, pastel is next best) Clean, polished conservative shoes Well-groomed hairstyle Clean, trimmed fingernails Minimal cologne or perfume Empty pockets--no bulges or tinkling coins No gum, candy or cigarettes Light briefcase or portfolio case No visible body piercing (nose rings, eyebrow rings, etc.) For Men and Women Title : Title Necktie should be silk with a conservative pattern Dark shoes (black lace-ups are best) Dark socks Get a haircut; short hair always fares best in interviews No beards Mustaches are a possible negative, but if you must, make sure it is neat and trimmed No rings other than wedding ring or college ring No earrings For Men Title : Title Always wear a suit with a jacket; no dresses Shoes with conservative heels Conservative hosiery at or near skin color No purses, small or large; carry a briefcase instead If you wear nail polish (not required), use clear or a conservative color Minimal use of makeup (it should not be too noticeable) No more than one ring on each hand One set of earrings only For Women Title : Title 2. Be on time Before the day of the interview, make sure where the interview would be held. Take time to find out where the location of the interview is, days before the actual interview. Keep in mind to leave enough time for your journey. Do plan to arrive about 10 minutes early. Late arrival for a job interview is never excusable. If you are running late, do phone the company. Slide 8: 4. Be your best self Spend time researching about you. Review your past experiences and accomplishments that may fit the needs of the company. Being able to have a grasp of your talents, skills and experiences would enable you to communicate the contributions you can make for the company. Don't rely on your application or resume doing the selling for you. No matter how qualified you are for the position, you will need to sell yourself to the interviewer. Slide 9: 3. Be proactive Do research on the organization by reviewing its corporate profile and by reading some relevant information through websites and print materials. Find out the specifics of the job you are applying for and try to prepare some questions about the company - its culture, goals and mission. Slide 10: 5. Be Positive By being well-prepared, you eliminate nervousness. Just enjoy the interview and be enthusiastic when responding to the interviewer's questions. Confidence and a pleasant disposition bring out the positive energy in you. Slide 11: THE INTERVIEW Slide 12: Do greet the interviewer(s) by title (Ms., Mr., Dr.) and last name if you are sure of the pronunciation. Do wait until you are offered a chair before sitting. And do remember body language and posture: sit upright and look alert and interested at all times. Don't fidget or slouch. Don't tell jokes during the interview. Remember to turn off your cell phone before the start of the interview. Don't smoke, even if the interviewer does and offers you a cigarette. And don't smoke beforehand so that you smell like smoke. And do brush your teeth, use mouthwash, or have a breath mint before the interview. Slide 13: Relax and be yourself. Some first impression gestures are handshakes, eye contact, warm smiles, good posture and a confident introduction of self. If there are two or more interviewers, be sure to address all the interviewers in the room when answering the questions. Take time to think before you answer questions. A well-thought answer is always better than a rushed one. Try to give complete answers as much as possible and if you do not understand the question, ask for clarification. Slide 14: Use concrete experiences to illustrate important information about yourself. Avoid using poor or slang language to impress the interviewer. Use familiar but concise words during the interview. Show interest during an interview by striking a good balance between speaking and listening. Be honest. Answer the questions truthfully and be fair to yourself. Make sure to highlight your good points. This would enable the interviewer to asses your performance at work and your potentials to be an effective employee. Don't be soft-spoken. A forceful voice projects confidence. Do have a high confidence and energy level, but don't be overly aggressive. Don't say anything negative about former colleagues, supervisors, or employers. Slide 15: When being asked about your weaknesses and failures, mention how you were able to handle the difficult situation, share the lessons you learned and the improvements you would take to convert certain weaknesses to strengths. Don't act desperate by telling the interviewer you are willing to take any job offered. If you have some points that you weren't able to discuss towards the end of the interview, take the initiative to mention a couple of things you want the interviewer to know about you. Before leaving an interview, ask the interviewer what the next steps would be. Know what to expect and when to hear from them. Do show what you can do for the company rather than what the company can do for you. Don't inquire about salary, vacations, bonuses, retirement, or other benefits until after you've received an offer. Be prepared for a question about your salary requirements, but do try and delay salary talk until you have an offer. Slide 16: AFTER THE INTERVIEW Slide 17: Thank the interviewer for the time spent with you. Make some notes regarding the things you learned about the company. These may be helpful for your next sets of interviews. Do try and get business cards from each person you interviewed with -- or at least the correct spelling of their first and last names. And don't make assumptions about simple names -- was it Jon or John -- get the spelling. Make a follow-up call to know your status and your succeeding interviews. Do write thank you letters within 24 hours to each person who interviewed you. And do know all the rules of following up after the interview. Source: GlaxoSmithKline Philippines & Randall S.
