Job Interview FAQ

  • How to get a job interview?

    First, create a resume that stands out. Take some time to create a well-designed resume. The easy way out is to use a resume builder. Then pick the right format, write it the way you’d like to read it, tailor it for specific positions and don’t forget to make it ATS-friendly (if you plan to apply via job boards).

    Second, make use of your connections. Statistically speaking, over thirty percent of new hires come from employee referrals. Determine which companies you’d like to join. Then, you need to identify possible connections within them. If you know anyone who works at the company you’d like to apply to, ask them if they can put in a good word for you.

    Third, apply. Whether via job boards, LinkedIn, or company’s career page. Then follow up on every job application.

  • What to wear to a job interview?

    The hiring manager will usually inform you of the company’s dress code when they invite you to an interview. If they haven’t, feel free to reach out to them and ask.

    Alternatively, you can dress based on the company sector. For formal corporate interviews it’s usually business professional attire, for less formal corporate interviews it’s business casual attire. If you’re interviewing at a startup, you can opt for a more casual outfit.
