Interviewing Made Easy

Interviewing Made Easy
Presenting yourself properly is one way to make the right impression needed to get the job done!

Here are some helpful tips to consider when you go for an interview:
  • Arrive 5-10 minutes early
  • Dress neatly and professionally
  • Introduce yourself
  • Stand until the interviewer asks you to sit
  • Maintain direct eye contact with the interviewer
  • Sit alertly (do not slouch)
  • Be friendly
  • Speak pleasantly
  • Look interested and be interesting
  • Express yourself clearly
  • Know the type of work you are looking for
  • Do your homework on the company you are interviewing with
  • Thank the interviewer for his/her time at the end of the interview.

Here are some pitfalls to avoid in the interview:

  • Don't complain about a previous employer
  • Don't tell jokes unless you are applying to be a comedian
  • Don't get angry at a question
  • Don't get into any discussions about your problems
  • Don't tell the interviewer how nervous you are
  • Don't bring your children or significant other to the interview

This is your show! "Showcase" yourself

*Remember this your chance to land that job. Put your best foot forward and make the best impression you can.
