The process of looking for a new job can be time-consuming, overwhelming, and emotional. All of these emotions can make it difficult to concentrate on your job search. However, take the time to reflect and prepare. Do not allow these emotions to come across in your job search or in the interview. Prepare your responses carefully.
Remember to not speak negatively regarding your past employers even if the interviewer asks a behavioral interview question regarding things you did not like regarding your past employer. Take the negative out of it and determine the real issue as to why you are looking for a change. What are you looking to obtain from a new role or organization?
Before the interview take time to mentally and physically prepare. Take a step back, relax, and think about relevant examples that you can provide to your interviewer to showcase your skills and accomplishments.
Additionally, write down questions that you want to ask the interviewers. This is the time to remember the reasons as to why you are looking for a change. You need to know what you want and what you do not want – you do not want to repeat the cycle.
