Most employers or recruiters are going to look at your Linkedin profile. It is very important that you have the same date, same descriptions and same information on Linkedin as well.
3.Know the trends of the industry.
We can learn a lot from online blogs, articles, Podcast channels and so on. It is a great way to show that you are interested in the industry by knowing the trends and news. You can share the information during your interview to impress the interviewer.
4.Find a mentor who can advice or teach you some industry related materials
Finding a mentor is not an easy process for some people. It takes a lot of courage to talk to someone, and ask to be a mentor for you. However, you will see how helpful it is to have a mentor.
5.Be patient and be honest
Being honest can actually help you get into a company that fits you and your culture. Sometimes, we try to fake ourselves to become who we are not. But believe me the interviewers can tell that you are faking it, and they will feel that you are hiding something. Also, you don’t want to end up being at a company that does not fit you.
