The Proper Handshake
        • Firm, but not bone-crushing

        • May be "pumped" once or
          twice from the elbow
        • Is released after the shake,
          even if the introduction
          continues
        • Includes good eye contact with
          the other person
Meeting and Greeting
• Who introduces who?
   Traditionally, a man is always introduced to a
    woman. Not necessarily in business.
   Highest person of rank is mentioned first.
    Remember: “Big, may I introduce Small.”
   A younger person is always introduced to an
    older person
   It is helpful to include the persons title
   Always state your name.

2.   Your hair should be clean and combed.
3.   Nails should be clean and trimmed.
4.   Be conservative and err on the side of

     code, remember that it’s better to over dress

  the many men suits available to you today. Shirts
  should be clean and ironed. If in doubt, wear a classic,
  conservative tie.

  business attire.

6. Know the exact time and location of your
   interview; know how long it takes to get

   that might be required.

   not put your cell phone on vibrate.
9. Bring extra copies of your resume along
   with a list of references to offer the
   interviewer.

     courtesy and respect. Their opinions
     of you might be solicited during hiring
     decisions.
11. Enter the interviewer’s cabin with
     confidence.

1. Make a positive and professional first
   impression.

   pronunciation.
3. Address your interviewer by title.

6. Maintain good eye contact during the interview.

8. Take a few notes during your interview.
9. Listen and pause before answering the question.
10.Respond to questions and back up your
   statements about yourself with specific
   examples whenever possible.
11.Ask for clarification if you don't understand
   a question.
12.Be thorough in your responses, while being
   concise in your wording.
13. Reinforce your professionalism and your ability
    to communicate effectively by      speaking
    clearly and avoiding "uhm", "you knows", and
    slang.
14. Be honest and be yourself.
15. Exhibit a positive attitude.
16. Treat the interview seriously.
17. Make sure you understand the employer's next
     step in the hiring process.

1. Shake each interviewer's hand and thank each
   interviewer by name.
2. Send a thank you note (not an e-mail) as soon
   after the interview as possible.
3. Let go off the negatives. If you feel you have said
   or done during the interview which you would
   rather have not, just let it go.
Interview Etiquettes
Dining Interview
Before the Meal
• Confirm the location and time. Ask how you will recognize
  the interviewer.
• If you are nervous about the setting, visit the restaurant
  before the interview. Look at the menu - brush up on the
  correct pronunciation of the items on the menu and the
  correct dining etiquette for eating those items.
• Turn off your cell phone before entering the restaurant
  and leave it off.
• Dress professionally (even if the restaurant is casual).
• Bring copies of your resume and a pen and note pad.
•   Follow the steps you would normally take to get ready for
    an office interview. Research the company, practice your
    responses to interview questions, and prepare a list of
    questions you have for the interviewer.
•   Arrive early to visit to the restroom to tidy up. Take a few
    minutes to relax before the interview.
Dining Etiquette tips
•   If there is more than one person interviewing you, allow
    everyone to sit and then put your napkin in your lap.

    what the interviewer is eating.

•   Do not change your order or send food back.
•   Be polite to servers. Say "please" and "thank you."
During the Meal
•   Focus on the interviewer even if the restaurant is noisy
    and full of distractions.
•   Avoid discussing religion, politics, or anything else that
    might be controversial.
•   Although the setting might be casual, don't become too
    familiar with the interviewer. Remain professional.
•   Try your best to remain relaxed and stay confident.
    Remember that the company believes you can do the job.
After the Meal
•   As the interviewee, you have no responsibility for the bill,
    but be sure to thank your host for the meal.
•   Ask for your host(s) business card(s) if you have not
    already received them.
•   Leave on a positive note by expressing your interest in
    the job.

 Show your enthusiasm by keeping an interested
  expression.

 Establish a comfortable amount of personal space
