How to interview for a job

The interview process does not require grandiose oration or extensive credentials – rather, it calls for succinct, relevant information to promote yourself for the job. The little things matter here: eye contact, pleasant demeanor, and a knowledge of the job you want to get. Here are some types when interviewing that will give you an edge in landing a job in Utah.

Focus on relevant experience

Focus on relevant experience

When recounting your experience, stick with the stuff that matters most for the position. If you're interviewing for the content marketing position at a Utah agency, explain your endeavors in blogging, social media, creative writing, and marketing management. Stay away from your summers as a hay-baler or that internship at a law office. If the interviewer brings those up, find a way to tie that experience into your content marketing skill set.

Research the position

Research the position

There is nothing like going into an interview where you know nothing more than the title of the position. This sends the message that you sent out many applications at once out of desperation, rather than carefully considering the position right for you. Making yourself informed on the position and all it entails shows that you are prepared to take on the responsibility. Knowing the company and it's values also helps significantly.

Dress appropriately

Dress appropriately

Dressing well for an interview is important, but it is more important to wear apparel that is pertinent to the workplace. If the content marketing agency has a strictly professional environment, then a suit would be an appropriate outfit for the interview. If it is a creative environment that is more laid back, then there's no need for formal attire. You want the interviewer to remember you for your credentials, not for what you were wearing that day.

Be personable

Be personable

Here the little things make the biggest difference. Smile, make eye contact, comment on the nice Utah weather, and be friendly throughout the interview. Appropriate humor always works, along with a couple sincere compliments. Just don't butter up the interviewer too much.

Plan your answers

Plan your answers

It is wise to anticipate what they will ask you and what you will say in response. Research the common problems the company faces and offer solutions. Prove them that you will have an immediate impact on their company. Showing the Utah agency that you have value will increase your chances of getting the job in the end.
