interview tips for career women

Competence without confidence seldom propels a person to the pinnacle of their profession. Despite the fact that more and more women are now at par with males at the university level, women continue to trail behind in top management positions across the world. 

One factor that may contribute to this difference is self-doubt, particularly when female workers discuss their professional successes. This is especially important during job interviews. There is, however, good news for women who undersell themselves. You may discover efficient strategies for projecting your confidence and skill so that a hiring manager can perceive it as well.

Be Verbally Confident

Women have a tendency to minimise their achievements, sometimes pointing to how their effort was aided by others. However, hiring managers want to know about you. Maintain your attention on yourself and your hard work. Instead of saying, "I was fortunate enough to be promoted to the position of regional sales manager," say, "My performance exceeding all sales goals was the primary reason I was promoted to regional sales manager."

Being a team player as well as a leader is essential in most roles, so it's a good idea to highlight individuals you've helped or who have helped you.

Be Positive And Enthusiastic

When hiring managers do interviews, they are not only looking at a candidate's skill set. They also want to see that the lady in front of them is interested in the firm and enthused about the opportunity to work there. First, when you meet the interviewer, say something complimentary about the organisation. Compliment the wall art or the beautiful vista, for example. This demonstrates that you are attentive and delighted to be present. Second, highlight what attributes you like in the organisation and how they connect with your own beliefs and interests during the interview.

Close On A Positive Note

If you reach the end of an interview and realise you'd be a good fit for the position, ask for it! Tell the interviewer that you'd love the job - that you were thrilled about it before the interview and are much more excited now, and that you're certain you'd like to work there. If there are two equally strong prospects at the conclusion of the search – you and someone else – the interviewer will believe you are more likely to accept the offer and may be more willing to make an offer to you.

Exude Confidence Through Your Body Language

positive outlook

The way you hold your body during an interview, especially in the initial few minutes, may either develop trust and confidence between you and the interviewer or spell disaster. Make immediate eye contact with the recruiting manager and welcome him or her with a firm handshake and a big grin. Maintain an open chest and shoulders during the interview, and lean forward to demonstrate that you are involved in the talk. Avoid gestures that make you look tiny (and so weak), such as folded arms or a lowered head. Your objective is to come off as approachable, personable, professional, and self-assured.

Negotiate 

First, restate the value you anticipate bringing to the organisation based on your previous performance. If the income cannot be increased to your desired level but you still want the position, demonstrate your readiness to negotiate on advantages such as extra vacation time, a better office, or an assistant to assist you.

Most businesses anticipate having to discuss compensation and benefits with a new senior-level worker. However, women are sometimes too eager to accept a pay package without first attempting to negotiate. You will have done salary research to determine whether or not the company's offer is competitive in the sector. If it appears to be too low, you have every right to request more.
