Are You Interviewing? A Few Quick Reminders.

Interviewing for a job is a skill and skills take practice. Many of us have been fortunate enough to interview others more than being interviewed. When it is your turn to be interviewed here are a few quick reminders:

  1. Do your research on the role, company and the people you are meeting.
  2. Research the dress code and err on the side of over-dressed.
  3. Review your route and arrive early to reduce your stress.
  4. Research and practice common interview questions.
  5. Prepare your questions about the position, the people, and the company.
  6. Bring a notebook for note taking and bring your work examples.
  7. Be your authentic professional self. They are hiring you, not someone you think they want.
  8. Bring professional references. If you have references that work at the company in which you are interviewing, start with those people.
  9. At the end of the interview, if you want the position, ask for it.
  10. Follow up with thank you messages to everyone with whom you interviewed.
