Interviewing Advice

When most people interview for a job they get very nervous. Being nervous for an interview is natural but if you're prepared you'll feel more confident and you'll be more likely to get the job. Read the following tips on job interviewing and try them on your next job interview.

Before the Interview

  • Make a list of a few of your strong points that you want to emphasize in the interview. Think of things that make you good at that job. For example, “I am a patient person” or “I have experience in this kind of job.” These points are going to be things you need to remember to talk about in the interview.
  • Get your clothes ready. Plan what you are going to wear. Make sure it is clean and ironed and the shoes look good.
  • Call for directions to get to the place where the interview will be. Drive there a day or two before the interview to make sure that you know how to get there.
  • Research the company. Look for information about the company on the Internet or talk to people you know who work there. The more you know about the company, the more informed you will be in the interview.
  • Practice interviewing. Have a friend pretend that they are the person who will interview you. Have them ask you interview-type questions and practice answering them with confidence.

During the Interview

  • Arrive to the interview a few minutes early.
  • When you meet the interviewer (person who is interviewing you) make eye contact, smile, and give them a firm handshake. It's important to make a good first impression. Most interviewers make a judgment about you in the first five minutes. Make sure it's a good impression!
  • During the interview speak with confidence and sit up straight.
  • Make sure you talk about the strong points you put on the list you prepared before the interview. Work them into the conversation in a natural way or use them to answer one of the interview questions.

After the Interview

  • Thank the interviewer for the interview.
  • Go home and send them a thank you note and put it in the mail immediately.
