You managed to make it to the next step in the job process, the interview!Are you prepared to face the interviewers and answer their questions? Did you practice your answer for possible interview questions? Did you study different types of interview questions and rehearse your answer for them? If you didn’t do any of these things don’t give up hope just yet! There is still time to turn you in to a qualified and confident candidate ready to answer any question that may come up in the interview process.

Before an interview, keep in mind that job interviews are very important. Interviewers use these interviews to get to know you deeper. If you cannot effectively express yourself in the interview, it is unlikely that you will be hired. It is necessary that your answers are convincing, professionally expressed and true. The following tips are your guide to give you an idea of what may be asked of you during the process.

· Breaking the ice. Before the interview will start, the interviewer might possible ask you about your day or the weather. Do not be surprised, the interviewer only wants to break the ice between the two of you and ease your nerves before you get started. Even though this is not part of the interview, your answer can still affect the course of the interview. Be sure to give a confident and positive answer, it doesn’t matter if there is ten feet of snow outside or your car was stolen this morning say you’re having a great day and smile.

· Relevant Information. Make sure that your job interview question answers should be connected to the job you are applying for and to your skills that will contribute to this job.. If you are applying for a computer job, your responses should be your knowledge of computers, such as software programming, hardware installation and web design. Though it will be to your advantage if you have other skills, stating relevant skills will help your interviewer decide if you are right for the job or not.

· Precision and Accuracy. When you are asked about your previous job and educational background you should be straight and accurate. Do not state incorrect information during the interview. If possible, memorize the dates, time and place, but if you don’t remember it is all right to give a general answer as long as its true.

· Use the Appropriate Language. Your responses are expected to be professional and formal. This signifies that interviewers want a reply that is professionally spoken even if you do not speak fluently. Do not use inappropriate language or slang when you are talking to your interviewer. This type of language will surely not impress the interviewer and your future with the company will stop as soon as the interview is finished.

Always keep an eye contact when answering all interview questions so that your confidence will show. It is much easier for you to express your message to the interviewer if you are confident rather than scared out of your wits. There are thousands of examples of good job interview questions online so check them out and rehearse you answer for each question for interview success.
