You Are Being Judged! by assisttohire: 4:47pm On Mar 08, 2017

Your interview does not begin when you sit in front on the interview panel, it begins the moment you step inside the office building or interview venue. The interviewers are judging you silently. It is not just about answering the questions perfectly, you are also being judged based on:

Your Dressing:

Your dressing speaks for you before you even open your mouth. Make sure your clothes are clean and ironed. You should be corporately dressed. Jeans and T-shirts do not belong in a job interview. Your shoes must be polished and free from tears. Also, chipped nails make you look untidy and don’t care about your appearance. Avoid wearing too many accessories, it’s not a party. You should not look unkempt at the same time, you don’t want to give an impression that you are vain either

Inability to Make Eye Contact:

Making eye contact could be difficult for introverts and shy people. However, this is very important as looking at everywhere but the person interviewing you makes you look disinterested or easily distracted. Be yourself, you will not burst into flames if you make eye contact. Imagine you are talking to an old friend and smile. There is no need to be nervous, the worst that could happen is you don’t get the job and that is not the end of the world.

Time Consciousness:

Time is money. This is one of the cardinal rules of interview preparation. Arriving late to an interview is the beginning of failure. It makes you disorganised, disorientated and generally portrays you as someone who has no respect for the time of others. If you arrive late at an interview, it is interpreted to mean you would come late to work is you are employed and unable to meet deadlines.

Chewing Gum:

Chewing gum during an interview will portray you as someone who has no manners. Apart from being disrespectful, talking with your mouth full whether its chewing gum or food looks very unsightly.

Your conduct:

Work on your body language. Smile at employees you find at the company. You have no right to look down on people normally, but this should not even cross your mind when you go for an interview. You don’t know who might be watching.
