Job interviews tend to strike terror into the strongest of hearts, but knowing how to play to your strengths really does help. Here’s a quick and easy guide to your sign’s job interview style – what to showcase, and which “talents” might be best left un-mentioned! If you know your Ascendant sign, read that one too, because our Ascendant signs usually come across strongly in a “first impressions” situation such as a job interview.
Formal, career-minded and quite serious by nature, you’re the high-achieving interviewee that others dread to find themselves up against. Your ambition is clear and you won’t hesitate to ask about future prospects for the role in question. The danger is that interviewers may find you over-qualified, or too eager to move up the ladder without paying your dues in this position first. On the plus side, you account very well for your skills when questioned, and you are personable with a self-deprecating wit which comes across well in these situations. You wouldn’t be there if you didn’t really want the job in the first place, and interviewers sense genuine interest on your part.Do: Emphasize your suitability for this particular job at this particular time without placing too much emphasis on the future.Don’t: Ask when your would-be boss will be retiring!
