1Arrive 15 minutes early to the interview. Fill out any applications or forms neatly and completely.
2Bring at least 2 extra resumes. In case the interviewer misplaces yours or you meet additional people.
3Do not answer questions with a simple “Yes” or “No”. Sell yourself and your attitude by using examples. However, be sure to answer all questions to the point and do not ramble on.
4Do not concern yourself with salary, or bonuses on the initial interview.
5Stay positive! Do not make derogatory remarks about previous or present employers. If you are forced to discuss a negative situation always “flip it” by stating what you learned or why you are better because of it.
6Share stories & anecdotes that relate to the client’s hot buttons. “that reminds me of a time…” Stress what you have made, saved or achieved for previous employers that would not have occurred without your efforts.
7Be flexible and take cues from the interviewer. Not all interviewers have the best experience interviewing and may not ask you the question you have been poised to answer. Make a list of characteristics, experiences and abilities that you would like to get across during your interview to help lead the discussion.
8Tell your potential employer what you are going to do for them. Not what they can do for you.
9Build a relationship. Remember the goal is to hopefully be working with the interviewer(s) in two weeks.
