Don’t just let the interviewer ask all the questions. In fact, they expect you to ask some! Have questions prepared to learn more about the position and the company, such as:
Your resume has caught the attention of a perspective employer, and you have an interview. What’s the next step? Here are a few tips to help you ace the interview.
Wear the Right Outfit.
Check with the HR department for the company’s dress code. Wear clean, pressed, conservative clothes in neutral colors. Avoid excessive make-up and jewelry.
Be Well Groomed.
Have nails and hair neat, clean, and trimmed. Don’t overdo your favorite perfume or cologne.
Be On Time.
Know where you are going, allowing time for traffic and parking. Show up 10 to 15 minutes early; arriving late to the interview says a great deal about you. Keep your cell phone charged and have the interviewer’s number handy in case circumstances are beyond your control, but turn it off before the interview.
Know the name, title, and the pronunciation of the interviewer’s name. Give a firm handshake and maintain good eye contact. Don’t talk too much about your personal life and don’t bad-mouth former employers.
Send a Thank You Note.
Here’s your chance to make a final impression on the interviewer. You may find it is much appreciated and remembered.
