I know that most people who applied for jobs went through the process of passing an interview. It was a requirement of most companies and firms before hiring people as part of their staff. On the other hand, I remember hearing a lot of stories about interviews. Some shared their embarrassing moments and the wrong words that came out of their mouth. They said that it was tough and a person must be ready for it if they want the job or position.

Since I have heard enough stories, I decided to reflect. I am in my 3rd Year in college and I will soon apply for a job too. It would be best if I will be ready for my upcoming interviews once I am on that journey already. I asked several people for tips and suggestions about this and I came up with a compilation of ideas on how to nail a job interview.


Study the details of the company.

Some people who are in charge of conducting interviews will ask questions about what you know about their industry. Also, they may have the following questions about your ideas on the position you want to apply for. It would be best to be ready for this scenario. Make sure to research the background of the company, its competitors, and other points about their organization. It will be your advantage among the other applicants.

Clarify why you want the job well.

Be ready to answer the question about why you are the best candidate for the position. It would be a good idea to give supporting statements about it, like sharing your skills. And after that, do not forget to mention the reason why you want the job. Tell them your interests and what you can offer to their company. Give them your best answers and make them see how interested you are in the said job.

Study interview questions are commonly used.

We all know that there are questions that people use when conducting an interview. You can check the internet about them and list them down for your practice. Make yourself ready for the questionnaires, and never forget your supporting statements. It would be best to have at least enough ideas about how you will answer them.

Ask questions to your interviewer.

You can count on asking questions to the person in charge too. It is better to show them your knowledge about the company by asking questions or clarifying things. Ask some intelligent questions and make it sound that you have good intentions for their organization. You can ask them about the traits of the candidates that they are looking forward to. Prepare one or two questions about this concern and let them know that you are interested in their answers and explanations.

Prepare yourself for the best shot in the first five minutes.

Some believed that interviewers will focus on the first five minutes. It would be best to earn scores in this part and the rest of the interview will be confirming their decision. You can count on starting with enthusiasm and positive energy. Do not forget to mention how you appreciate their company. You can tell them compliments, like excelling in a particular field.


These are some tips on how to nail a job interview. You can check the internet for more, and let me know if you already experienced it on hand. To all the users who went through job interviews, care to share the techniques you did? It will be my pleasure to read it below.

All your points mentioned above are very useful and effective. Though I did not give any interview as I have not finished my study yet and am planning to apply for job later so it will be really helpful for me. These points are most basic and useful things for preparing a job interview, so I must say a big thank you to you for this sis

Just like you, I am still a student and I am just trying to get ready for that journey ahead of time. It would be best to be ready on these things to avoid rejections and all.

I hope it somehow helped you! I am glad that you liked it.

Interviews are fun, when I conduct an interview I ask oddball questions just to see how someone responds under pressure. Merry Christmas :)

So, you are an interviewer? That's really nice. And you have the advantage to ask several questions and see how they would try to come up with their answers.

Merry Christmas to you and your family! 💚

I have been an interviewer and an interviewee, actually, I like putting people at ease and asking questions that have nothing to do with the work, but get to know their character as that is more important to me.

Wow! That's really good to know. I mean, being able to see how someone could let you know their character. I think that's one of the best things about being an interviewee.

I miss job interviews lol, it's been so long since I had one! There was a company that interviewed me and all the question was just "Tell me something about yourself that's not in your resume" lol. I did have my computer and technical exams but that interview was unforgettable.

I think it really depends on what position you are applying for. When I had my interviews for a restaurant staff position, questions were really easy and somehow the same. And when I had my interview for the managerial/supervisory level, it was really difficult and no questions were the same. Some of it were from out of this world or kind of like a Q&A in a Miss Universe. If only I can downshift my career, I would. 😅 I hate interviews.

This is why I wanted to ask for further experiences ate 😅 Kasi magkakaiba ng experience, and gaya ng sabi mo, depende talaga sa position talaga.

Anyway, nakakatakot pala mag-apply for higher position hahaha. Mukhang mapapasabak sa sagutan ate.
