Job Interview Help - Job Interview Weakness

By Leeanne Utiger
Sitting in a small room or an office of a potential employee for a job interview can be daunting and to be honest, sometimes scary. Prior to any job interview, you should make sure you have received all the help you could possibly need to ensure you have a relatively smooth and even enjoyable job interview with the job interviewee. This article will go into some brief detail on where you can find and access help for preparation of an impending job interview, and also a little bit of information regarding job interview weaknesses, this means the areas of an interview which you could improve upon. Because I am going to concentrate on two varying aspects of related interview knowledge, I will divide the article up into two sections. In the first section I will talk about the help you can access and get for yourself prior to an interview taking place. In the second section of this article I will go into common job weaknesses and how you can overcome them before heading out to your next possible job interview.

Job Interview Help
As I mentioned earlier in this article, job interviews can seem scary and be rather daunting, especially if you are going for your first job interview ever. There is ways and means of finding help and getting all the help you need to assist you prior to attending an interview, to hopefully ensure that your impending job interview goes well for you. Before you locate any help, you need to try to pinpoint where you need the help. This is called being able to define your weaknesses, which I will get more into in the second section of this article. However once you have managed to achieve this, you are ready to hunt down and access the help you are in need of to help prepare you better for any impending job interview.

These days there are more and more Recruiters available for you to make good use of. A Recruiter is a trained and qualified person who can give you advice and help relating to all possible aspects of a job interview. A recruiter can even help you consider what job positions you are best suited to. If you think you need some one on one help regarding certain aspects of making it through a job interview successfully, I suggest you phone and make an appointment with a Recruiter at a Job Recruitment Agency and let them help you with their successful interview knowledge.

If you are more interested in trying to help yourself, you can access help right from the comfort of your own home. Run a search on the internet using your home computer. You will be given an abundance of web links to choose from taking you to one of many varying websites that offer help to people who need it prior to attending a job interview.

Another helpful thing you can do for yourself when you feel you need some help, is to gather a friend round and stage a 'mock' interview. Get your friend to be the interviewee and you be the person applying for the job (just as the case would be for real) and do what is called a practice run of an interview. This will help you to gain confidence, both in your speech and clarity and in what you actually have to say.

As you can see, there are a few ways of obtaining help when you are unsure of your capabilities prior to attending an impending job interview. I suggest you try gaining some help before an up and coming interview using all of the methods above. You can never be too ready for a job interview that may get you in the work force.

Job Interview Weaknesses
Job interview weaknesses are aspects of an interview that you feel you lack confidence with. This means that job interview weaknesses can range form how clearly you speak when spoken to, the condition of your nerves, to how well you answer any questions that an interviewee may ask of you. It is important that you learn to pinpoint these job interview weaknesses either prior to a job interview, or in the very least during a job interview that you were not successful at. If you can pinpoint where your job interview weaknesses lay after a job interview, you can work on these job interview weaknesses and improve on them for the next job interview you attend.

There is nothing wrong with having job interview weaknesses. We all suffer from one weakness or another when we first begin to head out to job interviews. This is often because we are put into a place of 'not being in utmost control'. (meaning, we are not in the position where we are controlling what is going on around us - we are the microscopic piece of the interview equation). That could seem a strange way to put it, but that quite simply is how it is when you are attending a job interview. The interviewee is studying you, all of the time. An interviewee will study the way you move, the way you speak and also what it is you have to say. Rest assured, if you have job interview weaknesses the interviewee will see these.

If you are lucky enough, when you hear back about how the job interview went, the interviewee may even pinpoint where your job interview weaknesses lie. That is always very helpful for a person who has to move on to another job interview. We cannot improve on our job interview weaknesses, unless they are recognized and shown to us. If an interviewee comments on certain job interview weaknesses, respect what they have to say and learn from what they have to say. Always take constructive criticism exactly as that - constructive criticism. This will help you overcome the job interview weaknesses that you in the meantime possess.

The more job interviews you attend, the less likely you will be at holding many job interview weaknesses. Your self confidence will grow, your ability to relate to varying people will grow and your overall demeanor will grow making you a stronger and more knowledgeable person when it comes to job interviews.

All I can say now - is Good Luck!
