When you land an interview, it’s time to turn it on! This is your chance to showcase your personality and skills in person.
Be sure to research the company and the role you’re applying for. Practice common interview questions with a friend or family member, and dress appropriately for the interview.
During the interview, be confident, but not arrogant. Answer questions honestly and to the best of your ability.
Be sure to ask some questions of your own when given the opportunity!
This is your chance to learn more about the company culture and the day-to-day responsibilities of the position. Asking questions also shows your genuine interest in the company.
After the interview, be sure to follow up with a thank-you email or note. This is a great opportunity to reiterate your interest in the role and thank the interviewer for their time.
