Professional Skills 101 - Interviewing 101

JJ RAMBERG reporting:

Interviewers have four main goals - gauge your interest, check if you’re fit for the job, evaluate your professionalism, and get to know you! Before prepare! Research the company, anticipate questions, and be ready to answer them. Plan your outfit. Wear something that fits. Too tight or too loose? Don’t bother. Wrinkles? Iron it. T-shirts? Shorts? Sneakers? Forget them. Perfume or cologne? Avoid it. Always dress up when in doubt. Arrive early and don’t forget to silence your phone. During be aware of your body language and make eye contact. Remember to breathe. It can ease your nerves. Speak slowly. We tend to speak quickly when we’re nervous. Share your accomplishments as mini case studies. What was the situation? What did I contribute? And what was the result? After follow up with a short email. Thank the interviewer and share something memorable. Consider this your last chance to make a lasting impression.
