Tips for Interviewing

*Bring your most enthusiastic self to your interview. You can never redo an interview or a first impression. Give it your best – 100% effort.

*Communication skills, I will probably make this point in every blog. Make sure you sound clear and articulate. Please, no marbles in your mouth.

*Dressing for the Interview. I can dedicate a whole blog to this. For now, when in doubt as to what to wear, err on the side of being a bit over dressed rather than looking too casual. Make sure you are neat, clean, and wrinkle free.

*If it’s a phone interview, make sure you are in a quiet location without background noise. Also make sure that you have a good connection. This simple component can make or break an interview.

*If you have an in-person interview, you need to be on time. This is crucial. That means leaving yourself enough time for road blocks, traffic or plain old just getting lost.

*Listening is key. Make sure you listen carefully to what is being asked of you. That being said, be sure to answer the question. Be concise in your answer. No one likes an answer that dances around the actual question without ever answering it.

*Research. It is your job to know a few things about the company you are interviewing with. What do they make? Are they a public or private company? How large are they? This lack of information can easily end an interview quickly. 

*Don’t be afraid to ask questions. It shows that you are engaged in the conversation, and look, no one has all the answers. Just don’t ask questions like, “what does the company do?” That is something you should have researched before the interview. See previous bullet.

*Make sure you have a copy of your resume either in front of you or with you. It’s very common to get a little nervous during an interview, why not have something to reference in case you need it.

*At the end of the interview be sure to thank the Interviewer for their time.

* Follow up with a “thank you” note or email. You will be remembered as someone who is polite, follows up, and has good communication skills. That’s a good thing!

*Lastly, Good Luck!
