1. Do not pretend to be who you are not

Do you really think that the HR person in front of you who has seen dozens of people will not realize you’re pretending? You will only become awkward and untrustworthy. And even if you could deceive him, do you think you can pretend to be another person for several months? What you are is fine and your managers will appreciate your strengths and smooth your defects.

2. Being funny at all costs will not pay

The two most sought after skills are education and enthusiasm. Do not confuse being shining, which is only an attitude that can be over the top, with being brilliant, which instead will give you an edge.

3. Show your emotions

Are you agitated? Good, it’s the demonstration that you care. Are you happy? Very well, that’s what all the recruiters would like to perceive in their candidates. Are you doubtful? Say it. Do not hesitate to let the recruiters know that you do not have clear ideas when you get up from that chair. Your emotions are not a brake, on the contrary, they will be your fuel.

4. Remember the rules of good manners

Greet when you arrive and when you go away, do not chew, take the hat off, turn off the phone, do not talk over someone else and, above all… listen!

5. Do not answer the questions with a simple ‘Yes’ or ‘No’

Usually every job interview is divided into 2 phases:

  1. The first one, where the recruiters try to understand the background and characteristics of the candidate
  2. The second one, where the company explain the offer

For those who are evaluating it is essential to know as many things as possible on your work experience, because often open positions can be multiple, or in very different fields or facilities. The more information you will be able to provide, the more recruiters will be able to put you in a situation suited to your characteristics. Therefore, let yourself be known in the first phase and keep all the questions for the second one.
