Job Interview Etiquette
Your degree, resume or application get you the interview, but it’s your personal skills that will land you the job, promotion or client.
Do your homework, make sure you know where the interview will take place, how long it takes to get there, who will be interviewing you and how people dress.
Arrive early, but not too early. Aim to be at the interview no more than 10 minutes prior to the meeting time.
Dress appropriately, call, visit or google images of the company to see how people dress while at work, then take it up a notch. If people wear jeans and casual shirts, wear slacks with a shirt and tie or blouse.
Introduce yourself. Don’t wait for someone to ask who you are.
Smile, relax and look them in the eye. You want to appear personable and confident. Interviews can be intimidating; this is a great time to show how you can handle stressful situations.
Say thank you, twice. At the end of the interview thank those in the room for their time, then follow up by sending a handwritten thank you note within 24 hours of the interview.
Good luck, you are going to do great!
