Once you get the confirmation of your interview, start preparing for the big day. Keep in mind that your behavior and choice of clothing hold as much weight as a well-rounded resume.  Keep these tips in mind to help you land the perfect job.

 

 


 

You should dress conservatively with clothes that fit properly. Arrive in clean and wrinkle-free clothes that are appropriate for the environment you will work. In fact, it is best to dress a step above what you will be expected to wear once you are hired. Avoid flashy clothing, hairstyles, heavy perfumes, and excessive jewelry. Men can choose dress slacks and a button down shirt and tie. Ladies should choose a pant suit or a conservative skirt and blouse. Leave the micro skirts or tank tops in the closet.

 Arrive on time...arrive a little early: fashionably late does not work in a job interview.

Don’t be late to your job interview! Don’t rely on your mobile GPS map! If possible, scope out your route prior to the interview date so you know exactly how to get there.  Whether you have to take a train or find a parking space, allow plenty of time to arrive and get to the door. You don’t want to arrive flustered about the parking meter running out because you didn’t bring enough coins.

 Once you’ve arrived, turn off your cell phone ringer. Do not accept calls or texts during an interview. This is not only unprofessional, but it indicates that you have no boundaries for your cell phone usage in the work place.

 Body language speaks volumes. During the interview don’t forget to smile; if you are really nervous, don’t forget to breathe! Crossed arms indicate you are closed-off from the situation. Instead, try to keep your hands at a neutral position, such as folded on your lap. Even if you are nervous, keep fidgeting to a minimum.  Avoiding eye contact indicates that you are not confident so maintain eye contact as much as possible during the interview. Don’t interrupt and don’t talk so much that the interviewer gets the impression that you are a chatterbug in the office.

 Come prepared with answers to commonly asked questions such as your desired pay rate, work schedule and start date. Do some research and come to the interview prepared and confident. Check out the company’s website or social media page and find areas of interest about the company or position and ask questions. This not only shows your interest in the company and job opening, but it arms you with knowledge so you naturally exude more confidence.

 Preparing yourself before the big interview will help calm your nerves and allow your skills to shine during the meeting. Arriving on time equipped with the right clothes and attitude will help you land the perfect job.
