If you want to get a good job and make it a better job so you can have a better life, it is important to understand what employers look for in a candidate. From the interview to the first day, to the first six months, Champion Personnel can help you learn how to present yourself and build habits that will set you up for success.
The interview is important for obvious reasons, the employer is meeting with you face to face for the first time so they can get a feel for who you are and what you stand for. Likewise, you are also learning more about the company and if it is a good fit for you.
When you show up for the interview, it is essential that you look presentable- showered, groomed, and dressed accordingly. It is also key to make sure you have done some research on the company you are applying for, this way you know what kinds of questions to ask.
Another thing that the employer is going to be looking for in a candidate is eye contact and posture. If you interview and are slouching, never making eye contact, you probably won't get the callback. Employers like to see someone who is engaging and conversational. So, sit up straight, pay attention, and look them in the eyes.
One more important tip is to bring a notebook and take notes. This shows you're interested and organized.
After you nailed the interview, you need to prepare for your first day. You need to show up just as energetic and engaged as you were in the interview- eager and ready to learn. Bring that notebook back and take notes on what you're learning, so it doesn't go in one ear and out the other.
Always focus on learning! Ask questions, get to know the people you are working with, and keep a positive attitude. If you keep that up and stay consistent with your work, you might just get a promotion down the road. And that is how you make a good job a better job.
