It can be stressful trying to think of impressive things to say in a job interview. One interview can be completely different to the previous one you had, depending on who is interviewing you and what the company is like. But fear not, I have made a list of things to say in a job interview that work in every interview you will ever attend. Good luck!
1. I Know a Great Deal about Your Company
Facts about the company itself are great things to say in a job interview. Many people are too concerned with talking about themselves that they forget about the company. Potential employers will be impressed if you know about the history of the company, as well as some statistics and little known facts.
2. I Am a Highly Motivated Individual
If a potential employer thinks that you are motivated, they will assume that you are willing to go above and beyond to get their job done. Companies don’t want someone who just clocks in to do what they are told to do and then leaves to go home for the day. They want someone who does tasks that are not asked of them.
3. I Work Well in Groups
Teamwork is extremely important when it comes to a career. It’s okay to be the type of person who likes to work alone, but you still have to learn how to work well with others. If your employer thinks that you can work well with people from your own company, they are more willing to let you travel and work with other companies as well.
4. I Always Have a Positive Attitude
Almost everyone knows one person at work who is always happy. You look forward to seeing that person every day. Be that person. Employers love positive people because it represents their company. You being positive shows that you love your job and you are determined to make others love it as well.
5. I’m Flexible
Employers love people who are flexible. If you have open availability, employers believe that they can count on you to be there if and when they need you. This does not actually mean that you have to dedicate every second of your life to your job, but you want to make sure that your potential employer thinks that you are willing to do that.
6. That’s a Great Question
If a potential employer asks you a question you weren’t prepared for or you have no idea how to answer it, you can give yourself some time to think of an answer by telling them that they asked a great question. This way you can think of an answer and you also give your interviewer a little ego boost.
7. I’m Always Willing to Learn New Things
If you aren’t as experienced as you would like to be in the field of the job you are applying for, you can always say that you are willing to try new things. You can also say that you are a quick learner, which lets your employer know that they won’t have to waste time training you and repeating things until you understand them.
Interviews can be fun, stressful, and even terrifying. But if you are prepared and know what to say than you’ll probably get the job! Remember to dress professionally and to carry yourself well and you’ll definitely get the job! What are some things that you think someone should or shouldn’t say in an interview?
