Before the Interview

Take advantage of this time to get to know yourself!

Know what kind of job you want and the qualifications you have to do the job. Take time to remember your experiences and what they have taught you.

How will this help you? Employers are impressed by those who can clearly express their goals and know what needs to be done to accomplish them. You may need to draw from your past experiences to answer several of the interview questions.

Look good.

Go to the interview looking presentable. This includes getting a good night sleep, along with showering and dressing appropriately. You may not need to wear a suit and tie or a dress, but your attire should be clean, ironed and respectable.

  • Look presentable, showered and well-groomed.
  • Wear clean, ironed clothes. If you choose to wear jeans, they should not be torn. Collared shirts are preferred for guys; don't wear t-shirts with logos on them.
  • Have clean and trimmed fingernails.
  • No gum, candy or cigarettes.
  • No hats or earphones.
