Sections of Interviews Preparation The Big Day Follow-up
10 Detailed Research on the Company Conduct some online and offline research about the company. Find out about the type of pharmaceutical products they sell, their assigned territories, last years sales revenues, etc. In a nutshell, find out everything that you possibly can about the company before you go on the interview. Update & Correct Resume: Last Chance There is nothing worse than having an outdated resume with spelling errors. Bring extra copies of your resume and be prepared to explain everything that is listed. Get a resume that gets you hiredGet a resume that gets you hired Wear Appropriate Clothing This is always the most professional, even if the office attire is casual. You always want to dress one step above what is expected. Dress to impress! Make sure your outfit is clean and pressed and you shoes are clean and polished and match the outfit. Boots with a suit are NOT appropriate. Nothing breaks a business outfit like a dirty, dusty pair of shoes.
11 Where Is the Interview? Imagine that today is the interview day. See yourself driving to the location, parking and entering the building. Make sure that you arrive in plenty of time to give yourself a last minute head to be check. Smile and proceed to the reception desk. Greet the receptionist with all respect as this is the first person you will have contact with and they know EVERYONE and EVERYTHING in that office. Do a trial run to see how much time it takes to arrive. Arrive on time. It shows you are inconsiderate of the interviewers time or that you did not care enough to find out ahead of time. If unusual circumstances occur on your way to the interview (accident, unforeseeable road construction…) CALL
What do you wear ? 12 Hygiene Personal grooming is very important. Make sure you shower and wash your hair. Use a deodorant and take it easy on the perfume While a little scent is nice, an overpowering fog of fragrance is not good! AVOID eating strong foods before the interview. DO NOT CHEW GUM Trim your nails: Clean under your nails and trim your cuticles. If you bite your nails, STOP for a week to let them heal HOLD YOUR SHOULDERS BACK, walk straight and hold your head high.
13 Men should pick a suit blue or black Make sure your suit is clean and pressed; you don’t want to show up looking all wrinkled. Dark socks and dress shoes are the last two things to consider in pulling your outfit together. Make sure you have your shoes cleaned and polished Wear BLACK shoes with a dark suit, Brown shoes with Light colored suits
14 Women Should wear a business suit or skirt and jacket. Make sure the pants are not too tight fitting. Skirts: when you sit down in a chair, you aren’t showing too much skin. This is business NOT a nightclub. Blouse: should not be tight. stylish shoes will complete your outfit. Jewelry: Don’t wear lots of jewelry that dangle and make noise. This would be very distracting and could cause an irritation to the interviewer.

That part comes with the job offer interview. 22-SHUT UP and LISTEN! This is not a social event; it is about business. Let the interviewer set the tone and pace of the interview now.

19 What you say is not nearly as important as how you say it. Many interviews fail because of lack of proper communication. But communication is more than just what you say. Often it is the nonverbal communication.the top five nonverbal, ranked in order of importance when it comes to interviewing : Eye Contact If you look away while listening, it can indicate a lack of interest. If you fail to maintain eye contact while speaking, at a minimum it can indicate a lack of confidence in what you are saying Do not just assume you have good eye contact. Ask. Watch. Then practice. Ask others if you ever lack proper eye contact. The Most Important Interview Nonverbals
20 Facial Expressions Take a good, long, hard look at yourself in the mirror. Look at yourself as others would. Then modify your facial expressions first eliminate any negative overall characteristics that might exist, then add a simple feature that nearly every interviewee forgets to include a true and genuine smile that tells me you are a happy person and delighted to be interviewing with our company today. You do not need to keep the smile plastered on for the full interview, but remember to keep coming back to it. Nod slowly. Rapid nodding sends a message that you are impatient Posture posture sends out a signal of your confidence and power potential. When standing, stand up straight. When you are seated, make sure you sit toward the front of the chair, leaning slightly forward, intent on the subject at hand.
21 Hands : Avoid negative hand messages like running fingers through hair, biting fingernails, wringing hands, adjusting tie (nervous), and touching nose or face, clasping hands behind behind head, rubbing back of neck (untrustworthy or defensive). Seating: Wait for the interviewer to direct you to a seat. If you feel uncomfortable, you may ask the interviewer:" Where would you like me to sit?" Keep a personal space of 30-36 inches. Sit to the back of the chair with your back straight. Lean slight forward to show your interest in the conversation. Women should avoid crossed legs and instead. Men should avoid sitting with their legs too wide apart or with one ankle over the other knee

What Interviewers Care About 26 Your goal it to sell yourself in the interview, while interviewers want to get answers for the following four questions before they can pass you: 1-Do you want the job? Your interests directly affect your productivity in your work. You need to convince the interviewers that you're interested in the position, the company, the field and the location. 2-Can you do the job? Although you resume may have already answer this question for you. But now it's the time for you to elaborate on your qualifications, use examples and numbers. 3-Will you fit in the organization? The fact that you have the interests and skills needed to do a job doesn't always means that you'll get the offer. Every company has its own corporate culture, you need to demonstrate that you can get along well with other coworkers and can adapt yourself in this culture. 4-Do you have the motivation? Most employers want you to take care of yourself and be self-motivated. You can show your motivation through your enthusiasm, your knowledge about the job, company and industry.
27 10 most desirable traits that all employers love to see in their employees are: 1-A proven track record as an achiever... especially if your achievements match up with the employer's greatest wants and needs. 2-Intelligence. 3-Honesty...integrity. 4-a team player who meshes well with interviewer's team. 5-positive attitude...sense of humor. 6-Good communication skills. 7-willingness to walk the extra mile to achieve excellence. 8-clear goals. 9-Enthusiasm...high level of motivation. 10-Confident...healthy...a leader
28 1-Tell me about yourself. This is probably the most common of all the interview questions because it’s an easy icebreaker. Whenever I asked someone this question, I just wanted to hear them talk, see what their personality was like, and just get to know them a little more. As an interviewee, my approach to answering this question is to let it be my opportunity to direct the conversation. If I know there’s a bullet on my resume that matches the job very well, I’d highlight it Start with the present and tell why you are well qualified for the position. Remember that the key to all successful interviewing is to match your qualifications to what the interviewer is looking for.
29 2-What would you consider your greatest strengths? This is an opportunity for you to mention a strength that may not be reflected on your resume. just stay positive. A few good examples: Your ability to prioritize, Your problem-solving skills, Your ability to work under pressure, Your ability to focus on projects, Your professional expertise, Your leadership skills, Your positive attitude
30 3-What would you consider your greatest weakness? TRAPS: Beware - this is an eliminator question, designed to shorten the candidate list. Any admission of a weakness or fault will earn you an “A” for honesty, but an “F” for the interview. ANSWER: Disguise a strength as a weakness. Example: “I sometimes push my people too hard. I like to work with a sense of urgency and everyone is not always on the same wavelength
