Your goal on interviews is to persuade the employer that you have skills, background and ability to do the job, and that you can comfortably fit into they organization

Manage your online presence on LinkedIn, XING or Facebook. Hiring managers use them more frequently to consult your profile and supplement or check against the CV/resume you send along. Eliminate any photos and statements that could reflect poorly on you. From an employer’s point of view, someone who emphasizes partying on a social networking site is not focused on jobs and those who post complaints about work or colleagues are less desirable candidates. Online CVs/resumes should not include sensitive information as they could show lack of respect for confidentiality and discretion.

Tips on International Interviews

The world over employers look for the same qualities in their applicants regardless of whether the job is in the USA, Poland or Hong Kong.

Overseas employers want to know a lot more about you than just your characteristics, contained in your CV or resume, that may or may not qualify you for both the job and the international living situation, before uprooting you (and possibly your family) and transporting you thousands of kilometers to their foreign operation.

A brilliant international resume or CV and cover letter, sent to job recruiters and executive headhunters, create interview opportunities but they will not secure you a job.

The job interview is your chance to back up in person everything that the employer has read about you in your CV, Curriculum Vitae, resume, cover letter or job applications.

These same keywords you used in your resume will be the foundation for your job interviews. Not only do you need to be able to write about your keywords, but also during an interview, you must be able to talk about them as well, in strong and powerful statements that highlight your successes, contributions and achievements.

This will probably be your first direct contact with the company and will give you an insight into it's workings and the chance to meet with it's personnel to see if it is a place that you would like to work.

Whilst interviews can be nerve wracking experiences, it should be remembered that the interviewer is only human and it is possible that they are nervous also.

The primary part of the job interview are interviewer questions.

If you are prepared for the job interview, dress and behave as in dress codes, you will be able to promote your qualifications effectively as you respond to questions, particularly about yourself, why you want the job and what you can contribute to the company

Always ask questions because this demonstrates your prior research and interest in the job.
