How to Prepare for These 5 Interview Types- Hot Tips

Congratulations! You have probably finally landed the big one – the job interview of your dreams. However, in your preparation, you might suddenly become nervous about the whole interview, and you might need to put things right with yourself so you can be sure you are doing it right. Now, did you know that there are different kinds of interview patterns and techniques depending on the kind of job you are seeking? Your response for each interview should be different in each case.
Now, let’s flip through five of the interview types:

A telephone interview
In most interviews, the first phase is the interview via the phone. It is actually a kind of screening, and most people never get past the first stage – the phone process. Read the following paragraphs carefully to ensure that when you have your own phone interview. You do things right.
• First of all, keep a sheet close to you when you want to answer the call.
• Also, your CV, or a list of the things you have accomplished should be close to you to remind you as you talk
• Ensure that there is no noise when you want to receive your call. Go to a quiet place and receive your call.
• When you receive the call, ensure that you are standing for at least the first few minutes. This is because, there is a form of confidence and authority that comes with speaking while standing
• When you are receiving the call, ensure that you are an active participant in the call. Let your voice be warm and cheerful. If you are enthusiastic, believe this: it will seep through the telephone to your interviewer.

A panel interview
• In a panel interview, a panel of at least three people sitting together to interview you in person. The panel asks you questions at the same time, and they expect a ready answer. If you are vying for positions in the teaching or government sectors, then you cannot avoid this interview method. It can be pretty tense for you, so you might want to follow the following advices:
• Get business cards from each of the members of the panel, and arrange them in the same pattern they are seated. This would ensure that you do not make the slip of forgetting their names.
• Imagine a warm and calm vista you experienced before to calm yourself down a little bit.
• Since you can answer one question at a time, answer each question to the point to which you are satisfied.
Behavioral Interview :
In this kind of interview, your personality is being questioned and interviewed. A psychologist might be the one to interview you, and questions include hypothetical crises which you are asked to proffer solutions to. Keep cool, and endeavor to make your answers relate to your work experience and history and how you have effected change.

Meal Interview:
In this one, you might just go for lunch with your employer to be. When you order, do not change your mind, so you don’t appear unresolved. Do not buy too expensive or too cheap food items. Also, desist from alcohol as much as possible. If you have to drink, ‘nurse’ the drink.
These are just some tips on how to prepare for different types of job interviews, in our next articles, we will be exploring more on specific job interviews and tips that will help you land that dream job.
