6 'KEYS' To Job Interview Success...

By Jimmy Sweeney, President of CareerJimmy and Author of the new, Job Interview "Secret"

A new job in the New Year. Wouldn't that be wonderful? You may be nodding your head. But then your palms perspire and your head spins. What's it going to take to make this happen? Maybe not as much as you imagine.

You've submitted your cover letter and resume and you have two interviews scheduled on your calendar. Will one of them lead to a job or will you just be going through the motions, as has happened in the past -- especially during a tough job market when there is so much competition.

Well, read on to find out how to ring in 2016 with job interview success. The keys below will help you unlock the door to your next job interview.

Key #1: Turn off negative thoughts. Look at yourself in a mirror and affirm what you see and know. You are a capable and experienced person who can talk clearly and with confidence. You can answer questions and ask a few of your own. You're an intelligent individual that will work hard and do your best to create harmony and good will in the workplace.

Key #2: Practice with a friend what you want to say and do during the interview. Such an exercise is a good way to shake off worries and to make changes before the big day.

Key #3: Remember that fear is nothing more than False Evidence Appearing Real OR Forgetting Everything is All Right. Some apprehension is perfectly normal. It can actually be your friend. It means you are eager to do your best and you're taking the interview seriously. You want to be aware of the people and situations around you so you will be more responsive, confident, and intentional about making the most of the opportunity.

Key #4: Avoid drinking or smoking before your appointment. Raising a glass or two during the holiday season may be fun at a party but not before an interview where you want your best self to be fully available.

Key #5: Put off vigorous exercise for another day or when the interview is over. You'll want to be alert and attentive as you listen to the interviewer's questions and to your own responses, so it's best to show up well rested and well fed.

Key #6: Stick to the point. Talk about what is relevant to the interview -- your work experience, job qualifications, and your goals for supporting the company and increasing revenue and so on. Some job candidates go down a rabbit hole talking about their family and friends or their hobbies and health. If you are asked questions about such matters, of course answer honestly, but briefly. Too much unrelated information can ruin an interview with a busy hiring manager who has many people to see.

Before the interview, slip these 'keys' onto your keychain, review them, and use them. Watch how they will unlock the door to a first class interview for the job you desire.

Happy New Year!
