How to prepare for a job interview - JobRino

The most important part of a job interview is the beginning. That’s when you have an opportunity to make a great impression—or a not so good one—on your interviewer. One boss, I worked for told me that he knew within the first 30 seconds or so whether the person had a shot at getting hired.

You probably have a little more time than that, but it’s important to make the best impression you can within the first few minutes of meeting your interviewer.

Carry it on throughout the interview, so you have a good shot at getting a second interview and a job offer.


  • Research the company: Find out what the mission of the company is, how long it’s been around, how many employees it has, and what your position would be if you got the job. If the company has a motto, memorize it. Make sure you know as much about it as you can so you can impress your interviewers and show them how much you care.
  • Review the job posting: Know as much as you can about the job.
  • Check out the interviewer on Linked

First thing an interviewer looks. Best place to search for jobs - JobRino

Job Interview doesn’t start with the first question. Hiring manager begins to assess candidates from the moment they arrive. Things they notice first are;

  1. Your Arrival Time: Arriving a few minutes early, about 10-15 minutes before the scheduled interview time – serves two purposes. It proves that you’re organized, reliable and eager. It also allows you to have some time to compose yourself, use the restroom and prepare for the conversation.
  2. Your Attire: Most employers are able to decide whether to or not to hire a person at the first phase of an interview. And the very first impression is the visual impression. So if you are undressed like you are not serious about the job interview –by not dressing professionally or not paying attention to small details such as shoes or clothes, you could be rejected before you’ve even started.
  3. Your Body Language: A lean posture can demonstrate a lack of confidence or boredom. It’s important to make eye contact while listening and speaking, offer

How to introduce yourself at a job Interview : JobRino

This the most common question for the sales or marketing and other related jobs in interviews. One of the things an interviewer wants to know about applicants whether they can sell, and what sales strategies and techniques they use. They ask you to demonstrate your approach to selling a product as part of the interview. Be prepared to pitch a product or service, even though you don't know what you will be asked to sell.


You might be asked to sell the interviewer a pen, a pencil, a stapler, an apple, or some other object. As with other hypothetical questions, there will be no right answer, but the employer will be interested in the sales process that you follow, your verbal communication skills, and your enthusiasm and creativity.

If you want to sell the pen, you ask the buyer questions. You ask him how long he's been looking for a pen, why he wants a pen, what owning a pen means to him.

Make sure that you are positive and excited about the product as you introduce it. You might sa

How to write an effective resume to find a job - JobRino

A resume as “self-advertisement” it is a written compilation of your education, work experience, credentials, and accomplishments all should be in reverse chronological order (i.e., starting with your most recent job first).

How to Respond to an Interview Invitation - JobRino

It’s a good idea to accept and confirm with an email, even if you have spoken to the hiring manager or human resources representative on the phone. Ideally, you'll send this email soon after the notice (often a phone call, or perhaps an email) about the interview.

Hence the importance of proper etiquette when responding and dealing with a company even from the early stages in the recruitment selection process. If you know that you have applied for a few positions consider checking your email frequently and answer all requests as soon as possible. Give a call back if they go to voicemail.

The structure of your interview response should include:
  1. Formal greeting and salutation (Dear Mr. /Ms).
  2. Thanking the recruiter/hiring manager and accepting the invitation.
  3. Confirmation of scheduling details (date, time, interviewer, location).
  4. Alternative time and date if you have a scheduling conflict.
  5. Request for a reply to confirm interview scheduling details.
  6. Proper closing salutations (S
