A portfolio of good communication skills that you can use to impress your boss is a must.
You must be able to convey to your interviewer the value of your skills, not just to impress them, said a spokesperson for the National Association of Assistant Headhunters.
“The best way to achieve this is by being clear and honest,” said the spokesperson.
“Don’t just say, ‘I’ve got the skills and qualifications to work in a position of responsibility’.”
They’ll need to be able give you examples of what you’ve done in the past, or tell you why you need to work with them.
“The NAAHT says to create a good portfolio of communication skills it’s important to understand the different types of job you want to work for.”
Communication is a skill, not a trait,” the NAAH spokesperson said.”
If you’re trying to find a job, and you’ve got this skillset, it’s not going to get you a job.
You need to know how to present yourself in a professional way.
“A portfolio of communications skills includes:What to consider in your interviewPrepare yourself for the interviewHow to prepare for your interviewHow you can make your CV stand outTell your interviewer that you’re confident about your skillsHow to show you’re prepared for a different jobThe NAAAHT recommends a portfolio be three to five pages long and include two to four key points, including:What you can bring to the jobWhat you want out of the jobHow you will communicateWhat you like to doWhat you are comfortable withWhat you do when you don’t have timeWhat you will sayYou should be able put these in the same order as your resume, according to the NAAAH.
I’ve worked with clients that are looking for someone to do an entry level position and I’ve seen clients who have worked in a senior position. “
It can give them a great sense of your value, your skills and your work history,” the spokesperson said, adding that you also need to present your CV in a way that shows how you have demonstrated your abilities.
“I’ve worked with clients that are looking for someone to do an entry level position and I’ve seen clients who have worked in a senior position.
They’ve got good communication abilities, but they’ve never been in a managerial role.
They’ve never had to be a boss, and they’re not used to managing.”
What to bring to your interviewWhat to show your interviewerWhen you can’t say more, make sure you’re ready to talkHow to talk about yourselfWhat you say at the endWhat to say in the interviewWhat you put in your CVThe NNAH recommends a candidate should be “slightly shy, articulate and knowledgeable”.
“It should be someone who’s comfortable with the role and understands it well, who can talk about themselves, and who has a good sense of their skills,” the spokesman said.
What to do in your roleThe NACAHT says a candidate’s experience and knowledge is the most important part of any interview.
“Be honest and clear, but not too clear,” the spokeswoman said.
It’s also important that the candidate be comfortable with their own personality.
“Make sure that they’re comfortable being yourself and not just the person who they are, so they don’t get judged,” she said.
In some cases, a candidate can even be required to present their resume and skillset at the interview.
What not to doIn some situations, a potential employer may decide to put you on a waiting list for an interview.
“You should have all the information you need, so the interviewer should know how the interview goes, what they should ask you, and so on,” the agency’s spokesperson said of the waiting list process.
You should also consider your own interests and how they fit into the role.
“You should not be pigeonholed into a role, especially if you have a history of doing it before,” she added.
“It’s a really good idea to look for someone who has an understanding of the industry they’re working in, and that they can relate to their background.”
In the case of interviewers, you must show the interviewer your experience in the industry and how it applies to the role they’re interviewing for.
If the interview is a candidate who has never worked in the media, you should tell them how you’ve worked in other roles.
What to wear to the interviewYou should wear a professional suit, and it’s essential that you don’s have your own professional logo.
“They don’t want to think you’re some type of publicity stunt.
They want to know you’ve had experience in their field.”
So they need to see that you’ve been in the field,” the national association of assistant headhunters spokesperson said about the need for a professional logo in the job interview.
A professional outfit is the last thing you want your interviewers to see.”
