Your Ultimate Guide to a Job Interview

You have taken hours to create the perfect resume and spent even more as you go through different job vacancies in Myanmar that suit your profile. All of this hard work pays off when you finally have a job interview with a company you have been looking forward to work with. This may be your first interview ever or you may have gone through interviews before, your chance of getting the job increases if you prepare well. The interview can happen over a video call or in person. These are some things that you must keep in mind which will help you make a better impression on your interviewer.

Dress to Impress

This may seem quite obvious, but that does not mean that you may not give it enough importance. Dress well for your online video interview or a face-to-face interview. Choose the right colors for your outfit. Flamboyance may take the focus away from you so stick to colors that are neutral and are conservative. You should look professional. This is your first impression and you do not want to mess it up because this may be your only chance to it as well.You may boast of a wardrobe that has the most fashionable attires, but you may want to save them for the time when you have been hired. 

The Legwork

Take the time to go through the details of the company. Understand their values and vision. An insight into these will give you a better idea about what the company may want from you. It will also help you tailor your answers so that they reflect the company’s vision in them. You may want to check online about what the company’s employees think about the organization. While you may find many jobs in Myanmar, getting your dream job depends on your groundwork about the company and its employees. Websites like Glassdoor and LinkedIn can be helpful for gathering information about the company. All of this research will also help you ask questions to your interviewer when they give you the chance to ask about the company.

Thinking Out of the Box

Organizations are focusing on hiring innovative brains rather than someone who can simply do their job without going the extra mile. When you are looking for a job in Myanmar, you must remember that some interviewers may try to throw you off the track by asking you a question that may seem odd. Prepare yourself for this and rack your brains for the best answer without losing your calm.

This is generally done to check how you may act under pressure. Your reaction will help them analyse your behaviour and you may get the job or lose it based on your answers. So if they ask you what animal you would like to be, your answer should be able to connect with your personality and the job profile that you are being interviewed for.
