Interviewing soon? Follow these tips to help make sure your interview is a success!

1- Dress the part and pack accordingly. Even if you’re applying for a job to work with orphaned dolphins, (that would be awesome!!) you want to dress appropriately. This means no jeans, no short skirts or dresses ladies, and no shorts. Check out [this break down] (https://www.thebalance.com/best-interview-attire-for-every-type-of-interview-2061364) of what to wear for both men and women. Make sure to pack a notebook and a pen to gather some notes while you’re there, as well as a copy of your updated resume and a few business cards!

2- Body language is key. What you say is JUST as important as how you present yourself. Sit up straight, maintain good eye contact, SMILE, and be engaged in the conversation. You are a strong person so act that way! No slouching or nervously touching your hair. It’s game time, so get in the zone and stay focused.

3- Make sure to listen and also answer the questions fully. Be a good listener and don’t hog the conversation. When a question is asked make sure you answer it as it was phrased. Don’t leave anything out or pick and choose which part you will answer. When they provide feedback just take it all in and don't interrupt.

4- Be clear about who you are. You know the question is coming: Tell me about yourself (aka your elevator pitch). Deep breaths. Just be clear and direct. It's extremely helpful to write up a short response to this question before you head off to the interview and practice your pitch first to have it in your brain and ready to go. Tell them why you are a good fit, how their company can benefit from hiring you, and what you bring to the table!

Answering these questions can help you write your pitch!

-What are the 5 strongest reasons I am a great fit for this job?

-What are 4 positive things I can say about the company, and how can I connect what they do to what I can bring to them?

-What are 3 positive things I did in my previous job that I can offer this one?

-Why do I really want this job beyond having a steady paycheck and/or benefits/other perks? (focus on what you can bring to them not the other way around!)

-What is the job description and how do my skills match up with it? Be as specific as possible.

Does anyone else have something different they do during an interview that has helped them land a job in the past? Secret tips and tricks to share? : )

You will only have a limited amount of time with each company representative, so make it count! Getting together an interesting and impactful elevator pitch before you attend a job fair will put you in a great position to make a lasting and favorable impression on company representatives who have limited time and attention to devote to each candidate. Practice your pitch on family and friends to work out the kinks and to get some valuable feedback.
