Job Interview Dos and Don’ts
Prepare an answer to the question, “What do you know about our company?” Take extra copies of your resume, any letters of recommendations, or references.
Make sure you are dressed well - hair should be styled appropriately, cover all tattoos, take out piercings. Don’t smoke before the interview.
Be On Time.
On time means five to ten minutes early. Know how to get there so you don’t get lost. Bring your resume and a pen to take notes.
Listen to the entire question before you answer and pay attention - you will be embarrassed if you forget the question. When answering questions avoid using slang or inappropriate language.
Give the interviewer 100% of your attention. Turn off your cell phone so you won’t be tempted to glance at it to see if you have new messages, etc.
Do Your Best.
Be confident and don’t complain. Never bring up personal issues, you are there to interview for a job, not tell your life story.
Show What You Know.
When discussing your career accomplishments, match them to what the company is looking for. Be honest about your accomplishments and work experience.
Watch Your Times.
During final interviews, make sure to communicate your available times so you don’t short-change school.
Always follow-up with a thank you note.
