Emphasise why you’re the best person for the job by focusing on key aspects from the advertisement
Presuming you’ve done all the essentials;
- Dressed to impress
- Done your research
- Arrived on time
You’ll now need to go the extra mile to win the race!
GIVING EXAMPLES of your work is always a winner but so many people forget to do this. A lot of people can say what they can do but not everyone can prove it. Whether you’ve got amazing organisational skills or you go above and beyond on service, give examples to back up your words; explaining what you did and the outcome. Don’t forget (positive) the outcome!
IF YOU ARE APPLYING FOR A SALES POSITION, the interviewer will want to see your past figures and sales growth. Have all these details with you to discuss during interview, but more importantly advise them on how you reached these figures and what you did differently. Even if some of the methods were a bit crazy, this will show them you can think outside of the box, making you stand out.
FOR MANAGEMENT POSITIONS, show you can not only lead a team, but make it successful. Did staff retention rate increase during your time? If yes, then what did you do that affected this? Did the team grow because of your efforts? Did your staff progress in the company through support you gave them, or perhaps they moved into a different area of the business as you recognised their skills.
