9 Advises about Giving Interviews

An interview basically decides the course of your career. A good interview can make your career and a bad interview can seriously hamper your progress. Thus, it is very important to know what to say when you attend an interview. Therefore, keep the following tips in mind while going for an interview.

1. The art of listening
During an interview, it is important to hear, understand and keep in mind what the interviewer is saying. A good listener always makes a great impression.
Therefore while listening carefully to the interviewer, arrange your answers in your mind. This will also give you ample time to prepare some good answers.

2. When to speak

Keep in mind when to speak and when not to speak during an interview. Those who speak without thinking, at the wrong time, are always at a high risk of being labeled as a talkative person, or a person who does not think properly before he or she speaks out.Thus it is better to keep silent and listen to what the interviewers have to say.

3. The information you provide
The amount of information you give out is as equally important as the amount of information you receive during an interview.  Try your best to maintain your composure and remain calm and confident.
Remember not to fidget while answering any of the questions as this will only make the interviewer think that you are getting confused and are not confident.

4. Provide facts
Keep your facts as short as possible. Keep in mind that the interview is of a very short time duration.  Give out only the facts which the interviewer asks you about.

5. Relevancy
It is important to share only the information that is relevant to your career, or the job profile in general. If the job for which you are giving the interview requires certain abilities that you possess, make sure that your interview concentrates on those.

6. A team player
Try to give the interviewers an impression of being a team player. A team player is very successful in today's corporate world.

7. Motivation
By showing your interest in the company, you can show the interviewer that you are interested in the job and are motivated to add value to the company.

8. Future plans
Tell the interviewer about any concrete ambition that you have so that the interviewer knows about your future plans and how motivated you are.

9. Honest answers
Always remember that an interview is just the start of the job and hiring process. If you make any false statements here, you might have to face humiliation in the future. If you get the job, it is possible that your profile may be checked and crosschecked any time. Therefore make sure that you are completely honest about your answers.

12 Ways to Stay on Top of Stress

Posted by Gabrielle Reece
  1. Exercise. Amen for endorphins. Believe me, they've helped me many days with my perspective. If you have to work out, then go take a brisk walk and get that blood flowing. It isn't about working out to lose weight -- it's about being healthy and staying sane.
  2. Eat the real stuff. Crappy food (fast, processed, and loaded with sugar) doesn't help your chemical brain and body handle stress. Living food, real food, helps support your mind and body while it's trying to deal with the million things coming its way. Every time I reach for the chocolate, I'm looking to feel something from it. Don't get me wrong -- if it's just a little here and there because I enjoy the taste of it, great. But if I'm using it the minute I feel overwhelmed, then that's when that food is no longer OK to eat. It doesn't make the problem go away, and then I just feel bad about eating the food to pacify myself. Grab green food instead. Put things in your mouth that are going to support your immune function and keep you levelheaded.
  3. Notice. Try not to let the stress overtake you. Recognize the situations that cause the stress and notice them coming your way. You have a better shot at fending off the full effects of the stress when you can anticipate it.
  4. Get it off your chest. Talk to a friend or partner about the stress. Sometimes just getting it off your chest can help unload some of the burden. 
  5. Keep your sense of humor. If you do have the chance to talk about it, try to see the irony and humor in the wacky bits. I think someone is dead in the water once they lose their sense of humor.
  6. Stay grateful. My daughter has large lungs and verbal skills she likes to display. Just when I start to wishfully think about her being quiet, I remind myself to be grateful that she can talk to me at all. In almost all of our problems are boatloads of blessings. "Oh, I don't feel like going to the gym."  Well, Amen that you have the means and the health to even be able to wrestle with the idea of going to work out. Make a habit of saying thank you. You will notice the sunny spots a lot more often, and not just the gray skies and storms.
  7. Ask, "What's the hurry?"  Have some fun. We're always so busy going somewhere, we miss just enjoying the moment. If an opportunity comes your way to do something fun, take it.
  8. Take a deep breath. When you feel the stress getting to you, take a moment. Get away, even if it's just for an hour, to be with yourself and your thoughts. Some people like to take a walk, meditate, lock themselves away in a beautiful bath, or go to church. Find the peace and the silence.
  9. Keep it simple. Simplify where you can. Does Junior really need to be in 78 activities at the age of 5?  Do you have to go to every little party or gathering you're invited to?
  10. Turn of the TV. A lot of it is bad news anyway, and it robs us of hours that we could use to be getting other things done. Since everyone complains that they have no time, get some by unplugging from the tube.
  11. Sleep. If you're rested, you have a better shot at handling things. Not to mention, you may not stress out as easily if you have a chance to recover at night.
  12. Drink water. I have said it before: Americans consume 21 percent of their calories through liquid consumption. Hydrate with water. Help you entire system function better just by drinking enough water. Oh, and by the way, if you don't think that weight loss and proper hydration have a relationship, think again. Shift the paradigm on its side -- don't think about exercise and nutritional eating just as something you have to suffer through to get into those jeans. Instead, think of them as armor that will protect you in this crazy world, with all of the bazillion details you deal with every day.
