  • Preparation: One of the most important aspects of an interview, either in person or via telephone, is that you need to do the research! Going into an interview with knowledge of the position you’re applying for is key. You should know what type of candidate the employer is looking for and should be able to discuss these requirements in depth. Also, be sure to look your best.
  • Presentation: How you present yourself to potential employers will help make or break your interview. Stepping into the door relaxed, but alert, will show confidence. Offer a firm handshake and maintain eye contact from the moment you enter the room. If it makes you feel more comfortable, bring along a notepad for reference during the interview, and don’t be afraid to answer any tough questions honestly; don’t just tell them what they want to hear.
  • Follow Up: A day or two after the interview, contact the employer to follow up and thank them for the opportunity. This is also a great chance to reiterate your strong points and fill in any gaps you think might have occurred during the interview. It’s also a good time to find out if they’re still interviewing candidates and when they plan on making a decision.
