Shortcut to Fabulous Interview Tips

career imagesFor most people job interviews are nerve wracking and no fun at all. I happen to love interviews because I feel like it is my chance to show a potential employer how fabulous I am! ┬áHere are some tips and tricks to help you show potential employers how fabulous you are…and you are!!!!

Be nice to the gatekeepers…receptionists, secretaries, assistants. They often have close relationships with hiring managers and will tell them about a negative interviewee.

Show that you are a team player and if you’re not figure out how to be one!

Be prepared to answer the following questions:

  • Name a strength and a weakness
  • Where do you see yourself in five years
  • What is a challenge that you have overcome and how did you overcome said challenge

If you already employed expect them to ask, “why x company, why now?” Answer is a positive way!

  • “I’ve had an amazing experience at company “A,” but I am interested in company x because I think the position allows me to utilize my skills to maximum capacity and provide the most value to my employer.”

Confirm an interview the day before. It shows that you are responsible and understand that rescheduling sometimes occurs.

Arrive at the interview 10 minutes early. If something happens that has you running late, call and let them know you will be running late. We’ve all been late to important appointments, so a phone call is much more likely to put the interviewer in an understanding mood when you do arrive.

Cover tattoos and piercings. Only one earring per ear!

Write a thank you note or email within 24 hours of the interview.
