Interviews: In a Nutshell

  • Re-read your resume: it is likely to be the basis of questions asked during the interview.
  • Dress for success: look the part of the position for which you are interviewing, or preferably a bit more conservatively.
  • Be well groomed.
  • Organize any paperwork you bring along.
  • Do whatever it takes to arrive early.
  • Be polite: not only to the interviewer, but also to the receptionist.
  • Use a firm handshake, direct eye contact, and a friendly smile.
  • Demonstrate a sincere interest in the job and the company.
  • Maintain a positive attitude.
  • Avoid saying anything negative about current or former employers.
  • Believe in yourself: there is no one just like you, and that is a good thing.
  • Always follow up by sending the interviewer a thank-you letter.
  • If possible, schedule your interview to avoid being: first in the morning, late in the afternoon, or on Mondays.

A Final Note

Be cool. Really. This too will pass; don't worry, be happy. Take a deep breath, remind yourself about your career success so far and appreciate the fact that you are a talented person. And remember, the interview is a two-way meeting. Yes the interviewer is evaluating you, but you are also evaluating that company to determine if you like it.
