Prepare for a Job Interview - Stage 3

Preparing for a job interview is important. Don’t be nervous - the more prepared you are, the more confident you will be during the interview.

 

Job Interview Preparation Tips:

  • Write down the exact time and location of the interview. Know how to get to the interview and how long it will take you.
  • Write down the names and titles of the people interviewing you. Phone and find out their names. Do not rely on memory; it may fail you.
  • Research the actual job duties and responsibilities. Then, as you practice your answers to possible interview questions, relate your skills and accomplishments to the required job duties.
  • Research the company – Look in newsletters, the library, research online, or ask people in the business.
  • Research possible interview questions and practice again and again with someone who can give you feedback.
  • Prepare your own questions to ask the interviewer(s). Asking questions shows a genuine interest in the company and the position.
  • Arrive early and alone. If you are kept waiting, do not let it make you nervous.
  • Dress appropriately. Do not chew gum. Be neat, clean and well-groomed.  First impressions are important.
  • Take the following items with you to the interview:
            - writing paper
            - extra copies of your resume
            - copies of your reference list and letters of recommendation if you have any
            - a portfolio
  • Do not linger when the interview is over. Smile, shake hands, thank the interviewer(s) for their time and leave.
  • Follow up with a thank you letter, restating your interest and call in a few days or weeks to inquire if the position has been filled.
