How to avoid being desperate in an interview – solicitor in Balloch
If you are being interviewed for a job that you really want, or even need, then it may be tempting to overdo it, and this can come across as desperate. Even if you really want a job it is important that you don’t appear to be desperate, as this can put off your potential employer. Here are some tips for being cool and collected in your interview, so that your future employer sees you more as someone who they should be trying to win over than the other way around.
Even if you are told that the job and office is very casual, it is important that you dress well for an interview to show that you are serious about the job. Wear clean and pressed clothing which doesn’t show too much flesh, but avoid wearing anything ultra-formal such as a suit, because this can seem like trying too hard.
Don’t make excuses or apologise
If the interviewer says that they are looking for a certain skill that you don’t have, be upfront and honest about not having that skill. You can then counter this inadequacy by saying that you are a fast learner and are prepared to take on a challenge, which puts you in a positive light and glosses over what you cannot do.
Never badmouth a former employer
Whether you have a bad reference or not you should never badmouth a former employer or point fingers. This makes you seem childish and will tell the interviewer that you are likely to do the same about their company should you ever leave.
