Congratulations! You have been invited for the interview.
It gives wings to the hopes on hearing the you have been shortlisted but, at the same time it also brings an expression of concern “Now What?”.
An interview is all about research, confidence and creating a good rapport. The hiring manager needs to know that you are capable of performing the tasks of the job and also that you will be a good addition to the team. The interview is your time to shine. Don’t be intimidated because you don’t think you have all the skills that are wanted in the job specification.
Most job experiences will teach you as you go, so though you may not have the necessary skill, doesn’t mean that you can’t get the job. All you need is to work twice as hard in your interview to portray that you are perfectly capable for the job. When it comes to hiring the right person, it is about the overall package – skills, personality, confidence and also the passion you show in your interview.
