Smile Tips? - October 19th 2009, 06:20 AM

I have a group job interview on Friday and I was wondering if anyone has any tips for it and how I can "stand out from the crowd?"

Thanks guys!

-Appear confident and ready to engage with the group, but not over confident so you appear pushy ,
-Dress smartly what ever job its for,
-Possibly bring along another copy of your CV, just incase...
-Depending on what job its for prepare your self for the usual questions, have you ever worked in X environment before? Give me and example of when you've worked in a team?
-Personally if they a big company I google tips for X interviews, if they're a chain store its likely to come up with some results, and people giving their experiences

And above all stay calm and relaxed

Oh and apparently imagining the interview naked helps, LOL sadly it just makes me take the whole thing not seriously and end up laughing way too much

Good luck!

How can one love themselves, when they love absolutely nothing?
Do something that is interesting. If it is not interesting, find out why it is not interesting.

Although its important to dress smartly, if its a hands on job (working in care for example) if your too dressed up (a manicure, too much make up, big high heels, you may be sending out the wrong messages. It could be a good idea to do a little research on the company, and anything else that seems relevant (one of my friends got asked about games consoles in one interview). One common question that has been known to trip people up is what are you not so good at. Make sure you have an answer prepared for this, if you say nothing you look arrogant, and if you say something really relevant they could be concerned at your ability to do the job.

it is real and as sure as the first evening star
can't touch it, or buy it, or lock it up tight
but its there just the same
making things turn out right

Yeah the 'what are your weaknesses?' question tends to get someone -- have a think! Try to think of a weakness that is also a positive, or give a weakness and then say how you've overcome it.

If it's a group interview they're probably looking to see that you work well in a team. Don't be afraid to take the position of leader at times, but do not overpower the other people - makes you look controlling/unable to be a 'follower'.
