Life after the interview: Ask yourself a few questions.

Have you been to an interview lately? What was your life after that? Anxiety? Or too much waiting?

Today, I want to share a few questions that you can ask yourself after an interview which can help in motivating you.

If you have been lucky enough to be the successful applicant you may receive a phone call to offer you the position. This could also be the time that you negotiate a starting salary, so be prepared. You may have to wait to receive a letter to hear whether you have been successful or not.

If you have been successful there are things that you may need to consider. For example relocation, travel, a new working wardrobe or giving notice to a current employer are all important considerations. The job hunting process includes receiving "No, thanks anyway letters" or regret letters as well known in Kenya. You should not take these personally and remember that it doesn’t matter how many knockbacks you get, you only need 1 yes.

If you are unsuccessful try and look at this result objectively. Ask yourself: How can I improve my interview skills? Use the following checklist to help you decide.
  • Was my introduction professional, eye contact, smile etc.?
  • Did I present well?
  • Were my answers comprehensive?
  • Were my questions relevant and concise?
  • Was my body language positive?
  • Did I do enough research?
  • Was I enthusiastic and friendly?
These are questions that easily help in motivating you especially if the answers were affirmative. If you have flopped in an interview, don’t worry, there will also be another chance, as I said early, you only need a one yes.

If you have a problem with your interview, please drop us an email and we will for sure help.

We at HCC wish you all the best.
