Helpful  Tips

  • Focus your energy toward the employer and remember the non-verbals: a good strong handshake and body language.
  • The eyes have it! Look at the employer when you speak and listen.
  • Be aware of fidgeting. Watch for nervous habits.
  • Plan well ahead. Get your materials in order and do your research.
  • Practice!! Set up a mock interview with a career counselor.
  • Arrive at the interview early.
  • Be yourself during the interview and be honest.
  • Ask questions. Prepare your list and bring it to the interview.
  • Remember to dress for the interview, not the job.
  • Bring extra copies of your resume and reference list.
  • Keep your answers concise and on track. Don't fall into a rambling trap.
  • Give your own views, not what you think you are expected to say.
  • Be enthusiastic, but don't oversell yourself.  Express genuine interest in the job and the organization.
  • Ask yourself the following questions: Can I do the job? Do I have a good work ethic? How interested am I in this kind of work? Will I fit into the company? Why do I want to work for this company?
