Advice For Application Process

Arrive 5 to 10 minutes early for an interview. 15 minutes appears too anxious, if you know you’re running late call and reschedule if possible. Never blow it off. Shake hands with the interviewer firmly. A handshake says a lot about you. Sweaty palms and dainty grip are not what you want to portray.

Make sure you look decent, have had a decent night’s sleep, freshly showered, make sure you don’t have bad breath, wear business casual clothing. No sneakers. No high heels.  Make sure you speak clearly and enunciate. This is not the time to mumble or use slang. You want to appear educated.

Research the company prior to arriving. Know more than the about us page. Get some depth into the company such as news spotlights and financial reports. This allows you to formulate some of your own questions during the interview which is always good to have some questions to fall back on when it is asked.

Make sure that at some point during the interview you collect the interviewer’s business card so when the interview is finished, post a thank you email to them 24 hours following the interview should an offer of employment not been made the previous day. It keeps your name at the front of the interviewers mind, it clarifies anything you may not have confirmed or forgotten about during the interview.
