Social Media IS an extension of your interview
Put the interview into perspective Look at every job interview from the employer's point of view.  What would you want to know about a candidate?  What qualities would you be looking for?  What types of things would turn you off about an applicant?  What kind of a person would you hire for this position?  What questions would you ask, and what answers would you like to hear?

Arrive 10 minutes early .  Check your appearance and then walk into the office.  Always be courteous and professional to everyone from the minute you walk in.  TURN OFF  your phone – completely.  Not even on vibrate Bring a note pad, pen, resume and any other supporting documents.
During the Interview ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Interview Questions Be prepared to answer the easy questions: Tell me about yourself. What are your weaknesses? What did you dislike about your last job? How do you handle conflict with your colleagues? Do not exaggerate or lie about your resume.  You are who you are and it is very easy to find out where you are not being honest. Do not be afraid.  Sometimes life experience can overcome school experience.
The No-No List Do not discuss: Politics (unless you are running for an office) Humor can be taken many ways, not always good Do not speak poorly about: - your old company - your old boss - your team mates Do not discuss your personal problems (financial, health, family) Focus on your ability to create solutions or accomplishments you have had at your company or with your team mates.
The No-No List  Do not discuss: How much does this job pay? How many vacation days do I get? How many personal days can I take? Do be prepared with questions – ask questions from your research. Asking questions shows you are interested in the job. - What skills have made others successful in this job? - What growth opportunities are there? - What are the goals of the department I will be working with?
Follow Up – PLEASE Follow up ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
