The job-seeking process in today’s highly competitive workforce is daunting. Landing an interview is not a guarantee you have the job. Here are tips on how to increase your chances of getting the job, according to  

Research, Research, Research 

Nothing is more impressive than showing the hiring managers that you’ve done your homework about the company. This should also give you an idea about the kind of employee they’re looking for and the company culture.  

Prepare Insightful Questions 

The interview is also a time when you can be the one to ask questions. This shows the employers that you’re interested in the position. But steer clear of asking any questions that can be easily researched on the website.  

Know Your Interviewers 

Getting personable with your interviewers and referring to them by their first name, while also keeping it professional shows that you’re making an effort to get to know them.  

Be Careful of What You Say and Do While Waiting 

Scrolling through your phone may come off as uninterested in the position. Instead, try to strike up conversation with people you meet while waiting or do more interview prep in the meantime.  

Don’t Be Afraid to Show That You’re Interested 

If you want the role, don’t play hard to get. Tell the interviewer that you’re interested in the position.
