I have been to job interviews lately and I was disappointed that I didn't get any call backs after the interviews. I don't know maybe they didn't like me in the interview and I didn't reach their standards. Do you have any tips during job interviews? How can I enhance my skills in communicating with the recruitment division? My interviews in the past went well but some comment they had was that I was a bit shy and I haven't got my thoughts well organized. I hope I can gain more confidence during interviews and don't get blacked out during the actual interview so that I may organized my thoughts well.

If you have been in interview before, then keep a list of the questions they asked. Knowing the company and what they do is good so you seem excited about working for them. Knowing about the company gives them the impression that you want to be a part of their team. It also helps when they ask, why do you want to work for us. Knowing their produce or service you can see yourself working there. Dress like you think your boss would. When asked what is the one skill you would work on most....listening. When asked why...because that is where you learn the most, either from a customer, picking up details of the job or even getting things from a different perspective. (this came from a college professor by the way). Interviewing is hard. A good hand shake at the beginning, maintain comfortable eye contact and when you walk into their office walk tall because it shows confidence. I've interviewed for jobs before and had to interview people for hire. A person to enters with presence is one that I wanted to know more about because it displayed confidence. Clean cut, good breath (believe it or not it's noticed)

Thanks for your tips. I will take note of these. I will keep a list of questions asked and remember them in my upcoming interviews. I will also research more about the company and their products. I think I have dressed properly during my interviews I've been wearing formal attires. Wow the listening part would be a good answer. I will take note of that. I haven't done that last interview I was kinda nervous in talking and walking in the office. Next time I'll be more relaxed and confident. Super thanks for this. Will be noting these tips.

I think you research more about the company and tell how could you actually make a impact to the company .Try to express yourself more and state how different are you from other applicant.

Thanks for your advice. I should really be more expressive and add more detail to my answers. I have also had comments that I don't talk too much and don't add more details to my answers. I don't know I'm just shy in expressing them so I must surpass this. I might try researching more too about the company. Thanks!

Just be confident when you go in there. Walk around the place, get familiar, act like you already work there. Visit the restroom, walk around, people will notice you that way. The person interviewing you will see that you are investing in a company by understanding what they do. It's hard to interview and then have to do it all over again. Good luck.
