You have a job interview coming. Congratulations! We do not want you to be nervous, so we have put together a few tips that we hope will help you successfully prepare for your interview.

Job Interviews Do’s

  • Make sure you are fully aware of the office’s dress code so you will know what type of clothing you should wear for the interview. Do not be afraid to contact the HR department for it is time for your interview so you can get a good feel of what you will be expected to wear to the interview.
  • The company already has a copy of your resume, but it will not hurt to bring extra copies of your resume. The person who will interview you will likely need to review your resume as you are sitting in front of him or her.
  • Your resume should be placed in a nice folder. You do not want to walk into the interview room with your resume looking like one of your pets had a little fun with it before you pulled it out of their mouths.
  • Although it is important for you to be early for an interview, you do not want to arrive too early. You can show up about five minutes early. You should certainly avoid arriving late.
  • After your interview, you should send a thank-you note to the person who interviewed you. You can make a final good impression.

Job Interview Dont’s

  • It is a good thing to be relaxed during your interview, but you should not be too relaxed. You are still trying to make a lasting impression, but you do not want to say anything or do anything that may seem less than professional.
  • Do not say anything bad about your previous employer. You want to remain professional, and you do not want to give off the impression that you are unprofessional.
  • Do not walk into the interview unprepared. You should make sure you research the company before you walk through those doors.
  • Do not lie. If you tell a lie and the company finds out that you have not been honest, you have ruined your chances of obtaining that job. Honesty is always important, right?
