Interviewing Tips

BE Prepared

  • Take an extra resume to the interview in case the interviewer did not bring their copy.
  • Be prepared to ask questions.
  • Research and know a few facts about the company.

BE on Time

  • Situations happens, so if you are going to be late, call and give the interviewer the option to still meet with you, or to reschedule for another time. Never just show up late for an appointment.

BE Courteous

  • Firm handshake and greet the interviewer by their last name until they give you persmission to address they by their first name.
  • Send a “typed” Thank You Note immediately after the interview to thank the interviewer for taking the time to meet with you. This is also another opportunity to briefly highlight your skills and interest in the job.

BE Attentive

  • Body language is an important non-verbal communication, so make sure you have eye-contact with the interviewer, this will communicate that you are paying attention and interested in what they have to say.

BE Dressed

  • “Professionally” Dress to Impress. You have less than 10 second to make an impression, so let it be a good and lasting impression.

BE Confident

  • Rehearse with a person who will give you honest feedback.
  • Practicing in the mirror is a great way to take notice of how you communicate verbally and non-verbally.
  • Remember, it’s not only what you say, but it’s also what you don’t say that can leave the interviewer with a poor impression of you.
  • Rehearsing will allow you to be comfortable and prepared, which will communicate to the interviewer confident and control.
