If you have been looking for a job for some time with little success, you’ll probably be feeling impatient. But there are a number of things you can do to improve your job interview chances – check out the tips below.

Resume Advice

Asking for resume advice is one of the first things you can do to improve your job interview chances. If you keep sending your resume out and haven’t secured a job interview, it could be worth asking the employer for their feedback. They may be able to give you some valuable advice on your resume, its content and your key skills to help you get your resume noticed more in the future.

Networking

Networking is a great way of boosting your job search confidence and your job interview chances. Networking with industry contacts and meeting potential employers can help you to heighten your industry profile and it’s also a great way of finding out about new opportunities. Many employers won’t advertise opportunities as, depending on the industry, many employers meet potential candidates through networking events and well known names in the industry. The more you network, the more you will be recognised in your field which will ultimately increase your chances of finding work.

Practice

Practice before a job interview is crucial if you want to make a good impression. Consider asking a friend to help you, practice answering interview questions, practice body language and study your resume to ensure you know its content inside out. All of this will help you to feel more confident during the job interview and this will demonstrate to the employer that you are capable of fulfilling the job.

Research

Research is vital during the job hunting process. If you win a job interview and are invited to meet the employer you need to know about the job role, the responsibilities and the company if you want to impress the interviewer. Spend time researching the company online, visit their website, familiarise yourself with their main business agenda and try and come up with some ideas as to why you and your resume are right for the job.
