How to Leave the Interview-Zone and Land an Offer

Don’t sell yourself short.
Frequently, people underplay their skills and talents during an interview, hurting their chances of getting an offer. Don’t sell yourself short! Share your key accomplishments and let them shine through. The best way to highlight your skills is to share an experience of how you put your skills to the test. Then share how that benefited you in your past and current position.

Prepare for tough interview questions.
Learn to answer tough interview questions the right way. You will have a better chance of success if you spend time coming up with answers before an interview. Think back to a time when you were asked a difficult interview question. Take some time to tailor a response that reflects your ability to handle challenges (like the question).

Apply for jobs that fit your background and personality.
Some jobs will not mesh with your background or personality. It is crucial to find job openings that align with your goals and experience. Being underqualified or overqualified may hurt your chances of landing an offer. Trial and error may take time, so exercise patience – you will eventually snag the perfect fit for you.
