The Day of the Interview…(Interview tips pt 3)

Posted by Dress for Success Midwest Professional Women's Group on July 7, 2010

Go light on the perfume. If you , try not to do so right before the interview.

Give yourself plenty of time to get to the hiring manager’s office. Aim to arrive 10 minutes early. If you arrive earlier than that, take a walk or wait outside.

If you feel nervous, take a deep breath, counting to 10 as you do so. Then, exhale slowly to the same count.

Once inside, observe your surrounding to get a feel for the workplace. Do you like what you see?

Turn off your cell phone, pager or anything else that beeps. The interview is too important to be interrupted.

Remember , the interview starts as soon as you step inside the building. Be courteous to everyone you meet because you never know who has a say in the hiring decision.

After the interview…

Send the interviewer a thank-you note within 48 hours of the your interview. Use the opportunity to restate your qualifications and interest in the position.

Stay positive ! Interviewing can be lengthy process, especially if a company wants to conduct a second interview with addition staff  members.
