Interviewing Techniques is an often overlooked skill that can make the difference between getting hired and not being hired for a job. I have interviewed thousands of people in my career, and hundreds of people I didn't interview for got hired. It is not that their interviewing techniques are bad, it is just that they didn't know how to go about effectively utilizing interviewing techniques in their interview. If you're a newbie struggling with how to interview, I will show you some interview technique tips.


The first thing I talk about in the interview technique series is having a good eye contact. Eye contact is a simple gesture that are often overlooked, but it is very important during the interview process. When you have a strong, respectful, and confident stare, your interviewer will be able to tell that you're interested in the job, and that they feel comfortable with you.


Another interview techniques tip is having a sense of energy during the interview. Most people are so anxious and uptight that they just don't look as good as they could. When you are interviewing, especially when there are multiple people competing for a job, a small sense of excitement can really stand out. Don't over think it, but have a natural enthusiasm for the position.


Be aggressive. If you feel like the interview is going well, and there are no problems there, you should simply walk away. This means ignoring other candidates who may be interviewing with you. Don't put pressure on yourself to do more than what is asked of you. Some interview techniques also call for leaving your ego at home and just answering the questions with confidence.


The most powerful interview techniques tip I can give you is to simply be you. If you dress appropriately, act appropriately, and speak with confidence, you will show your personality. Dress in something that is not intimidating but that still shows professionalism. You want to leave a good first impression, and you don't want to have to explain yourself every time someone asks you a question.


One interview technique that you shouldn't be doing is bringing up other job experiences. Interviewers rarely bring this up, unless you are specifically asking them about it. Don't fall into this trap. If you have many job experiences under your belt, that's great. However, what you should be doing is talking about your current position, your accomplishments, and how those achievements will help you achieve the goals you have set forth for yourself.


It's best to avoid asking questions about why you were hired or why another person was let go. This is a typical interviewing technique used by many HR managers. The problem with this is that they are not hiring you for your skills, but for your obedience. If you are asked about why you were hired, it shows that you aren't concerned about learning new things and you may end up lying just to get the job. This is a very bad interview technique and one you should avoid at all costs if you are serious about landing the position of your dreams.
