In interviews, your job is to convince a
recruiter that you have the skills, knowledge and
experience for the job. Show motivation and
convince a recruiter that you fit the
organization's culture and job description, and
you get that much closer to an offer.

  • Learn about the company online
  • Do some fast research, which will give you
    something to talk about in addition to the job
    description. Go to the employer's website, or
    Google information such as
  • How big is the company in terms of annual sales
    or employees?
  • What does the company say about its products or
    services?
  • What recent news (such as a new product, a press
    release, an interview with the CEO) can you
    discuss?
  • If the company is public, the boilerplate at the
    bottom of its press releases will tell you a lot.

  • Plan what to wear.
  • Go neutral. Conservative business attire, such as
    a neutral-colored suit and professional shoes, is
    best.
  • Err formal. If instructed to dress business
    casual, use good judgment.
  • Plug in that iron. Make sure your clothes are
    neat and wrinkle-free.
  • Dress to impress. Be sure that your overall
    appearance is neat and clean.

  • Follow up.
  • Many interviews end with Do you have any
    questions?
  • Bring a list. You may say, In preparing for
    today's meeting, I took some time to jot down a
    few questions. Please allow me to review my
    notes.
  • Be strategic. Cover information not discussed or
    clarify a previous topic do not ask for
    information that can be found on the
    organizations website.
  • In your opinion, what makes this organization a
    great place to work?
  • What do you consider the most important criteria
    for success in this job?
  • Tell me about the organizations culture.
  • How will my performance be evaluated?
  • What are the opportunities for advancement?
  • What are the next steps in the hiring process?
