Interview Tips

Want to nail your interview? Then study these tips on how to make a good impression.

Preparing for the interview

Making a good impression

  • Dress for success. Wear clothes appropriate to the position. Avoid excessive jewelry, cologne and perfume.
  • Take your resume and work samples to the interview.
  • Arrive 10 minutes early. Being late may automatically disqualify you from further consideration.
  • Turn off your cell phone as soon as you arrive.
  • Make good eye contact with each person you meet, especially the hiring manager.
  • Thank the hiring manager for the opportunity to interview.
  • Share your opening statement at the appropriate time.
  • Express enthusiasm and stay positive. Never criticize other individuals or other companies.
  • Be aware of your tone of voice and your posture. They give clues about how you feel about yourself and about the hiring manager.
  • Listen carefully to make sure you hear the hiring manager's questions correctly.
  • Speak clearly and concisely. Don't rush your answers.
  • Don't assume you are the best candidate since you don't know who the others are. Just be yourself and give it your best shot.
  • When the hiring manager has finished asking his or her questions, ask if there is time for you to address the questions you have. If there is time, then proceed.
  • End by thanking the hiring manager for taking time to meet, and then ask when a decision will be made and how you will be notified.
  • Follow up the interview with a written thank you note. Restate your interest in the position and why you believe you are a strong candidate who will add value to the company.

Evaluating the opportunity

  • After the interview, think about what the hiring manager said and what answers he gave to your questions to evaluate if the position is the right fit for you.
