Face-to-face interview or in the presence of several recruiters, clothing, language... Job interviews can be daunting. That's why they must be prepared upstream. Here are our tips for getting the best out of D-Day.

Do not leave anything to chance

In an interview, it's very important to look professional. It's therefore necessary that your dress and your gestures are in agreement with the image which you wish to return. You will rarely have a second chance to make a good impression. If you are a man, we advise you to focus on the costume. Your shoes, your nails and your hairstyle must be impeccable. You can not imagine how important the first impression is. It's even said that recruiters have a picture of a candidate in the first 8 seconds of the meeting.

Anticipate the Interview

The better you are prepared for this exercise, the more comfortable and relaxed you will be. If you have not anticipated the interview, this will be reflected in your body language and tone of voice, but also when you answer the questions of the recruiter. Before the interview, it's a good idea to gather information about the company and try to match your experience to the requirements of the position for which you are applying. Here are a few tips:

Train yourself. Ask for help from a friend or relative and ask them to ask you standard questions (describe your background, why you are interested in the job, where do you see yourself in 5 years, etc.)? During this exercise, try to look at the other person in the eyes

Register or film yourself: Avoid onomatopoeia of the type "uh" or "mmh" which mark a hesitation. Try to keep positive body language to show that you trust yourself, even when it's not

Prepare your outfit in advance and calculate your itinerary to the venue. Thus, you will avoid adding stress.

During the interview

Try to smile and have a strong handshake. Starting a conversation between when he picks you up and where he leads you to the interview room allows you to score points. The minutes before the interview are decisive for making a good first impression.

Body language is also very important. Relax and trust. We advise you to stand straight, lean forward slightly and maintain eye contact with the other person.
