TIPS FOR THE JOB INTERVIEW
The job interview is a crucial part of your job search
because it’s an opportunity for the employer to
figure out if you’re right for the job.
The TIPS below will provide you with information to
prepare for your job interview so that you can make
a positive and lasting impression.
1.DRESS FOR SUCCESS
Professional business clothes are always
appropriate. Iron your clothes if you can, and avoid
2. BE THERE ON TIME
Try to arrive 5 to 10 minutes early to be safe. Find
out ahead of time where you’re going and how long
will it take to get there.
3. LET YOUR PERSONALITY SHINE
If you’re excited about the job, don’t be afraid to
show it. Employers want passionate employees.
Feeling nervous in an interview is perfectly normal,
just don’t let your nerves overpower you during
interview. Eye contact and a calm, clear speaking
voice are excellent ways to show your confidence.
5. WATCH YOUR BODY LANGUAGE
During your interview, relax and sit naturally. Avoid
chewing gum or fidgeting with jewelry or your chair.
6. BE PROFESSIONAL
This begins with a smile and a firm handshake.
Remember, be polite to everyone you meet and turn
off your cellphone.
7. LISTEN CAREFULLY AND ASK FOR
Remember to listen carefully to the interview
questions so that you actually answer the
questions. Never interrupt. If you don’t understand
something, don’t be afraid to ask for clarification,

NO MATTER WHAT THE OUTCOME OF THE
INTERVIEW IS, REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE A
“WINNER” NO MATTER WHAT!
