How to prepare for an interview

Preparation is key. Make sure you take the time to analyze the job before your interview. This way you can prepare yourself and what you want to ask regarding the job. Reading the job description also helps to identify what the company is looking for in a candidate. When allowing yourself to think in advance you have a better start and chance to get through the first round, recruiters love it when you are prepared and most questions can be prepared in advance. For example, what are your strengths and weaknesses?

How to dress for an interview

A first impression says it all, so better dress like it! But dressing for job interviews is a lot more complicated than it used to be. What if you have an interview at a company where no one ever wears a suit? Therefore, always make sure to look at what type of company it's culture but never underdress. Even if you go for the full suit and tie, that will make a much better impression than an outfit that is too casual. So when in doubt, dress up a little bit extra than you normally would. When you look good, you feel good. And confidence is key!

How to survive your first day

First days are always a bit awkward, but they can also be very fun! Your colleagues might be new and very busy, but a fun little chat with a nice cup of coffee is always appreciated. So dare to ask, and make a couple of conversations to get to know each other. It is best to ask in advance if someone has the time of a cup of coffee straight away or maybe later during the day. If you feel less social and a bit overwhelmed, you can always prepare yourself for the work by reading some general documents including the company values and brand identity guidelines.

How to make your social media job-proof

Some companies love to stay in touch with their colleagues, it is a way to stay social and it can be very interesting to get to know your colleagues a bit better! But some pictures or video's are better off not to be put online. So how do you keep your social media professional and job-proof? Overall the rule is to think twice before you post. Is it appropriate for the public or maybe better to share it only with your best friends? Everybody drinks beer, so a picture of you enjoying one is great. However, after a couple of beers, you might want to reconsider posting that video of you dancing on ABBA.
