I want to share some tips with you on how to ace your job interview and land that dream job, promotion, or client!
First, remember that while your degree, resume, or application may have gotten you the interview, it's your skills that will make you stand out from the competition. So make sure you're prepared!
Do your homework on the company, the interview location, and the interviewers themselves. Research how people dress at the company, and then dress one step up from that.
Make sure you arrive early, but not too early. Aim to be at the interview no more than 10 minutes before the meeting time.
When you arrive, introduce yourself, don't wait for someone to ask who you are. Be sure to smile, relax, and make eye contact.
You want to appear personable and confident, even if you're feeling a little nervous. Remember, this is a great opportunity to show how you handle stressful situations!
At the end of the interview, be sure to say thank you twice. Thank those in the room for their time, and follow up by sending a handwritten thank you note within 24 hours of the interview. It's a small gesture that can make a big impression.
Good luck! With a little preparation and confidence, you're going to do great!
