The Interview is the Final Step in a Job Search
Be calm and be prepared
Looking for work and having been called for an interview, this is the step that will decide whether or not you are selected for the job. It is important that you go prepared and very sure of your resume.
With this roadmap that we offer you will make a positive impression, so that the position you want so much is yours. Before attending the interview, you should investigate everything related to the company and position you seek. If your date is 9:00 am, arrive half an hour earlier. Punctuality is important and this is the first impression they get from you. Since first impressions count, be sure to dress appropriately and look like a professional.

Do not get nervous. Relax and imagine that the respondent is in the same position, and with this in mind you will not feel intimidated. Assume a natural position. When answering questions, make eye contact with the interviewer. When you enter the office, if you're sitting, rise and extend your hand in greeting. If you're standing, greet and then sit down when the interviewer does so. While talking, do not show insecurity, lack of experience, lack of interest, excessive ambition or arrogance. Express a positive attitude, with a mastery of conversation and communication skills. As you answer questions, speak no more then necessary. Avoid discussing personal matters with the interviewer. In the first interview do not ask about salary, vacation time or benefits. Find out about the job's responsibilities, functions, various aspects of the company, and organization, among other issues. Do not ask directly when you will start working. Prepare in advance for questions you might ask. Some may be: What research did you choose and what about your work experience, why you'd want to do the work, what you can contribute to the company, when you might advance, what are your faults, how much did you earn in previous employment, how much do you think they should pay you, what is your job training, and describe the positions you have held. When they ask why you want to work for them, the answer is for your personal fulfillment, which represents a new challenge in your career. Never say that is because you have lost your job or because the salary will be higher.
