You’ve finally gotten the job interview. But now you’re nervous – you have that feeling in the gut of your stomach, you can’t think straight and you’re scared that you’re going to say all the wrong things.

But have no fear.

Here at LIFT, we’d like to introduce to job recruitment expert Kevin Britten, Managing Director of Top Recruitment Cambodia. He’s been working in recruitment since 2007 and his company works to help companies find the right staff for them.

According to Kevin, “attitude, skills and experience” will get you the job of your dreams.

The butterflies are still in your stomach. What do you do?

“Be prepared,” said Kevin. “You should prepare for your interviews by finding out about the activities, history and planned developments of the company.”

“You should prepare questions for the interviewer,” he added. “One or two questions which show that you are interested in that company and really want to work for them.”

“Candidates should apply for jobs which fit his or her experience and skills, but the person who gets hired will be the one with the strongest and most positive attitude,” Kevin said.
