Interview Tips

Starting in high school, we experience many interviews: whether they are for a job, position at school, or even college acceptance, interview attending is definitely an exercise consistently practiced.

No matter how old you are or what the interview is for, it is crucial to always present the best and most honest version of yourself.

These tips below will ensure that you stay true to who "Momma-raised-you-to-be" and that your interview does not end in total doom:

  1. Be prompt and on time! This is perhaps the most crucial guideline of all. Remember, you only have one chance to make a first impression! Not only does this show that you care, but it also proves that you are reliable!
  2. Eye Contact Looking the person you are speaking to in the eyes proves that you care and are excited and interested in the opportunity in front of you!
  3. Smile & Confidence A smile and confidence are the two most attractive and appealing traits in an individual! Stand up tall with your shoulders back and a smile across your face when you shake their hand for the first time!
  4. Manners Please & Thank You were taught to you at age four; more mature manners taught through life... Be sure to be well-mannered to show your respect throughout your interview!!
  5. Gratitude Be sure to say "thank you" upon arrival and before leaving! Show how grateful you are for this opportunity and their time!!
By implementing these tips during your next interview, it is my hope that your anxiety will decrease and your mindset will be a bit more positive!

Have a great rest of the week!
