Interviewing for a job is nerve-wracking and panic-inducing. You want to make a good impression so the hiring manager will hire you on the spot. But hiring managers are likely interviewing a dozen or more people a day — and even standing out can feel like it’s almost impossible, let alone being hired. Here are five tips that can help you make a good impression and nail your next job interview.
Whether or not your interview goes well, it’s always a good idea to send a quick thank-you email to the hiring manager. You should send it within 24 hours of the interview, thank them for their time, and even use it as an opportunity to put in one last short plug for yourself. Avoid sending a thank-you card in the mail because it usually won’t get there in time to make an impression.
You can nail your next job interview. All it takes is a little planning and practice.
