7 TOP TIPS ON HOW TO DO WELL IN YOUR JOB INTERVIEW!

Posted on 2018-05-21 04:54:00

Here’s how you can make the best impression, according to Daniel Wong Hoi Heng, Chief Information Officer (CIO) of Tokio Marine Life Insurance.

#1 Have the right attitude.

#2 Never be late for the interview.

#3 Exhibit positive attributes such as being calm and confident.

#4 Show enthusiasm for the job you’re applying, respect the interviewers, and avoid being snarky! “We want candidates who show intelligence, leadership, critical thinking and who are competent.”

#5 A simple and courteous thank-you email to your interviewer or HR will make a big impression.

#6 If you can’t answer a question, be forthright that you lack the experience to tackle the situation but express hypothetically how the situation will be handled to provide the right outcome.

#7 To ask or not to ask about salary? Here is Wong’s experience: “When I got my first job, I told my prospective employer that the remuneration is secondary. I am here to give my best and as long as the environment offers opportunities to gain industry experience and learn employable skill sets, then it is the right job for me. It must have worked as I was among the first in my batch to be offered a job!”
