Do’s and Don’ts for any Job interview

These are very basic but important things to take care of while you are going for an job interview.

Do's

  • Dress to impress. Make sure your clothes are clean, ironed and presentable.
  • Make eye contact, and begin with a strong handshake. This will signal your confidence when you meet your interviewer for the first time.
  • Pay attention to your scent. Women with powerful perfumes and men with intense colognes can destroy interviews. Moderation is recommended.
  • Sit still, with your feet firmly on the ground. This will help you maintain your posture and avoid fidgeting.
  • Let the interviewer set the pace of the interview. Let him or her lead with the questions.
  • Remember your CV details. In particular the experience most relevant to the role you are interviewing for.
  • Make a note of your questions. Bring a note-pad if you feel you might forget important points.
  • Make sure you get the interview’s name right and use it a few times in the interview
  • Let the interviewer decide when the interview is over
  • Remember. Its just as important for the interviewer to sell the benefits of working at their business, as it is for you to impress your next potential employer.

Don'ts

 

  • Don’t turn up late to the interview. If for some reason on the day it is unavoidable, call and let your interviewer know that you will be late.
  • Don’t sit down until you are asked. Don’t worry about this, the recruiter won’t make you stand-but if you move quickly to your chair and sit down, you will appear forward.
  • Don’t dress inappropriately. 
  • Don’t lean on or put your elbows on the interviewer’s desk. Sit back in your chair, so the interviewer can see more of you.
  • Don’t smoke before your interview. Whilst a quick cigarette might seem like a good idea to calm your nerves, the smell will be noticeable and unpleasant for your interviewer.
  • Don’t carry an oversized handbag even if it is fashionable. Carry a bag that is smaller and more manageable. Put it on the floor during the interview. Never place it on the interviewer’s desk.
  • Don’t keep adjusting your clothes.
  • Don’t fiddle with your hair.
  • Don’t pick up anything from the recruiter’s desk unless you are invited to do so.
  • Don’t volunteer your weaknesses. Whilst honesty is always the best policy, there is no need to volunteer your shortfalls unless asked directly.
  • Don’t call the recruiter “sir” or “ma’am” too much. Respect is mandatory, but don’t go overboard.
  • Don’t interrupt. It is inexcusable in an interviewing situation.
  • Don’t slip into a speech-making or preaching tone of voice.
  • Don’t lie about anything. Sometimes candidates lie about their salary. Recruiters often ask for proof,
  • Don’t criticise your current or previous employer. Doing so could give your interviewer the impression you are difficult to work with.
  • Don’t talk about the salary until later in the hiring process or until the recruiter brings it up.

Scope of work:
You can work in the entertainment industry or salons, spas or resorts. 

Spa professional:
