"How To" Series, Part 2: Tips on Interviewing

Updated: May 9

Interviewing - something that most people do less than 15 times in their career - kind of crazy if you think about it! Working on your interview skills when starting to apply for jobs is important to make sure that you are prepared. Yes, your resume is a big part of your job applying process, telling employers what your experience is and what skills you have, but your interview can showcase more about you than your resume can.

Let's talk about some basic do's and don'ts when it comes to your interview.

Do Do Not

Prepare in advance

Wait until the last minute to prepare yourself and your materials

Gather things together in advance of your interview

Be unorganized or have a lot of papers that you are filing through during your interview

Know where to go and when to be there

Be late

Dress to impress! And dress for the position that you want.

Wear hoodies, sweatpants or other loungewear.

Research the company you are interviewing for and come with some questions about

Go to the interview with no information on the company or what they do.

Interviewing is one of the hardest parts of the job hiring process. It can immediately affect your chance of getting the job you are interviewing for. Here are some more tips that could help you improve your chances at your interview:

  • Be positive

  • Maintain eye contact

  • Promote the best qualities about you, but also admit when you have room to grow and what skills you are looking to improve

  • Be a little earlier to your interview (Early is on time!)

  • Dress to impress the interviewer

  • Make a memorable, positive first impression

  • Write a thank you note or send a follow-up thank you email to your interviewer expressing your gratitude to them for their time

The number one thing to remember - be yourself! You want to work for a company that fits your own personal beliefs and personality as well, so don't be afraid to be yourself.
