Stand Out From the Crowd: Interviewing Tips From Our Pros
Do your home work! There is plenty of information readily available about potential employers, especially on the internet. Don’t be caught off guard when you are asked, “What do you know about our company?”
Use prudent judgement when dressing for an interview. You can’t go wrong with proper business attire.
Plan to arrive at the interview site 5 to 10 minutes early.
Don’t underestimate the importance of enthusiasm during the interview. Demonstrate a genuine and sincere interest in the position. You don’t get a second chance to make that first impression.
The interview should be a “two way street.” Don’t be hesitant to ask questions about the company and the job opportunity. But also know when to listen.
Be prepared to talk about past achievements and accomplishments. And more important, how these achievements relate to the potential job opportunity.
Make sure your potential employer knows your interest level in the job. If the interview is going well and you are comfortable about the opportunity feel free to “ask for the job.”
