Sometimes, no matter how much hotel manager training you have under your belt, or experience, skills and talents to show off, getting your dream job isn’t always simple. This could be because you don’t know how to sell yourself (and your fabulous talents) in an interview scenario. Here are 5 excellent interview questions which are the most frequently asked questions by industry professionals – and we’ve got guideline answers that will help you ace that interview and land your dream hospitality job.
Plan to succeed, not fail
If you follow the above questions, if you prepare your answers in advance, if you research the position and the company you are applying to…all these things will help you with your confidence in your interview. Plan to succeed – make time in your busy schedule to research, prepare, practise and present yourself for the job of your dreams.
Don’t let nerves get in the way
Nerves can put anyone off. Controlling nervousness is vital for delivering a flawless interview that can be understood clearly and make an impact. Being able to convey passion and enthusiasm for the industry and the company you are applying to will help to drive the speaking process and calm the nerves. When you are confident and passionate about yourself, nerves will dissipate. Talking slowly and clearly can also have a calming effect on how you address your interviewers, and changing your pitch and tone can draw them in to key areas that you want to focus on. Remember to breathe correctly (slowly and properly) so that you can improve your speech and calm your nerves down.
