We've almost all had one, at one point or another. A good old-fashioned job interview. The anxious moments of answering questions and having them go over your resume. I can remember back in the day walking into a McDonald's Restaurant at the age of sixteen - those were of course the pre-zoom interview days - face to face with an assistant manager barely older than me.

Here are a few tips you can use to land that ideal job in Bismarck

I came across this article the other day that I believe is dead-on accurate (as far as my experience goes). hcareers.com has presented some great advice on mostly to make a good first impression. This to me is crucial, think about all the moments you have met someone for the first time - what struck you about that person?

Do Your Homework before your interview

I have a friend in Minot that had an opportunity to chase her dream and score a job she had her eye on for a while - when the time came, she failed to get the job. She told me later that she "didn't do her homework" -My friend wasn't able to answer certain questions due to her lack of being prepared - this is one of the first tips you can be sure is so important. If YOU have a chance to interview for a job you've always wanted here in town, be sure to learn everything you can about the company, its product, and what appeals to you the most.

Confidence in your ability will shine through

Some of the other tips are just common sense - be on time, dress nice out of respect, and be confident but not too cocky. Your potential employer wants to see someone who can handle themself in a professional manner, and represent their company to the fullest. Interviews of any kind are always going to be a little nerve-racking, but if you stay positive, calm, cool, and collected - you'll feel much better. Shoot high and always pursue your goals.
