Interview Dos and Don’ts Information follows YouTube Video: Interview Dos and Don’ts from VaultVideo
Interviews are assessments in key areas such as: Professionalism Your interest in the job being offered How you would fit into the job and company (skills and personality)
Dress Appropriately You can’t overdress for a job interview. Remember to dress appropriately means dressing professionally not your homecoming dress or Friday night outfit. No large jewelry, loud colors or too much make up.
Practice your Handshake Good firm handshake (not too firm and not too limp) Make eye contact. Smile
“Tell me About Yourself” Is the opportunity to give the interviewer a summary of your career, ability and goals – your soft and hard skills. This is NOT a license to tell your life story. Smile
Assessing good and bad points Many interviewers will ask you to share your weaknesses and strengths. Don’t use personality or character flaws. Focus on areas to be worked on over time.
5 things to remember in an interview: 1- Stand up and greet the interviewer. 2- Don’t wear too much cologne or perfume. 3- Bring a copy of your resume and cover letter. 4- Ask interviewer for their business card. 5- Turn off cell phone. If it goes off apologize and turn off immediately.
