  • Why Research is Important Properly researching a company prior to an interview will help you answer common interview questions such as:  “What do you know about our company?” and  “Why do you want to work here?” Research will help to mentally prepare you for an interview and can help ease nerves
  • Practice Practice what you will say during an interview Rehearse with a friend or family member so that you can identify the weak spots in your interview Watch out for nervous gestures and do not use slang or other inappropriate language Some common interview questions to practice are:  “Where would you like to be in 5 years?”  “Give some examples of work accomplishments.”  “What are your strengths/weaknesses?”
  • Dressing for an Interview Remember that it is always best to be overdressed rather than underdressed If you are unsure of the appropriate attire, you may ask the person who scheduled your interview What to wear:  Conservative suit in a solid colour  Professional top in a solid, coordinating colour  Conservative tie

  • During the Interview Arrive on time, or early if possible  Arriving early will allow for time to mentally calm down and prepare Pay attention to the interviewer’s name and title, if you do not already know Remain calm by taking deep breaths and allowing time to think before answering a question Answer all questions honestly  Remember that negative information does not have to be volunteered, but if asked a direct question you should not lie
  • Concluding the Interview Thank the interviewer for their time, the interview, and the opportunity Be sure to ask when a decision will be made about the position or a second interview
  • Follow Up on the Interview Make notes of the interview such as:  The name of the interviewer and questions that you answered well and not so well Send a thank you letter or email  Be sure to thank the interviewer for his time and the opportunity  Include some main points of the interview  Clarify or answer a question that you did not appropriately answer  Reiterate your interest in the position
