When interviewing…

Here are my TOP TEN things to do when interviewing for a job:

(Before the interview, during the interview, and after the interview)

  • Give yourself a professional appeal.  Dress professionally, act professionally, and please be on time.
  • RELAX!!!  This is very important.  If you are not relaxed, you will show that you may not be able to work under pressure.
  • Have a prepared resume ready at all times.
  • Pay attention to your body language… because the person interviewing you will be.
  • Send thank you letters to the people that interviewed you.  This always is a good follow up tool that will keep you in the mind’s of the person that interviewed you.
  •  Turn off your cell phones, beepers, etc. BEFORE getting out of your car.
  •  Always ask questions.  This shows interest in the company as well as the job.  It also shows initiative.
  • Eye contact…always try to keep eye contact with the person interviewing you.  This shows that you are serious and not afraid to look straight into their eyes.
  • Take the time to find out as much information on the company your applying for BEFORE your interview.  This also shows interest in the company, as well as preperation.
  • Shake the hands of those interviewing you BEFORE and AFTER your interview.

What do you think?!?  Let me know…
