Interview Tips
  • Prior to Interview:
    • Study your resume and re-acquaint yourself with your accomplishments.
    • Educate yourself regarding the organization.
    • Check out the Corporate Website.
    • Check out the Corporate Annual Report.
    • Be prepared to ask pertinent questions.

  • Dress For Success:
    • Wear a conservative suit
    • No perfume/cologne
    • Minimal jewelry and make-up
    • No chewing gum
    • Avoid smoking prior to interview

  • The Interview:
    • Arrive 10 minutes early - take a dry run if uncertain of location/directions.
    • Bring a clean copy of your resume - one for each person you will meet.
    • Be prepared to fill out an application and provide reference names.
    • Give a firm handshake and smile when greeting the interviewer.
    • Make direct eye contact with interviewer.
    • Listen to questions before you speak to make sure you answer the questions asked. Give a complete thoughtful answer, not just yes or no.
    • Never complain about a current or past employer.
    • Focus on your skills and accomplishments from prior jobs, as this is the best way to tell a potential employer what you can do for him/her.
    • Do not ask about salary or benefits; wait for the interviewer to bring up the topic.
    • Be prepared to ask pertinent questions.
    • If asked what you are earning be honest because the organization may ask to see a pay stub for verification.
    • If asked what salary you are looking for, it is best to say, "I have not put a dollar figure on it. I would hope that if I am the candidate of choice, you will make me your strongest offer".
    • Relax and enjoy the conversation. At the end of the interview thank the interviewer for his/her time, express interest in the job, and ask for his/her business card.

  • After the Interview:
    • Call your recruiter to give your impressions of the interview, the position and organization and to receive feedback.
    • Write a professional thank you note to each person you have met.
