Job Interview Process
By: Chance Hall
Before The Interview
Before the interview you should plan your route, get a good nights rest, prepare yourself for questions they may ask, and know what you are going to wear to the interview.
During The Interview
You should arrive 10-15 minutes early to give you time to rethink what you might ask them, and remember how you will answer certain questions. Some questions you may ask could be some benefits they give employees, or if you'll ever have to work holidays. You should always dress up for the job, never wear too much cologne or perfume. Bring a copy of your resume, and greet the employer with a firm handshake and tell them why you're there.
Common Questions and Tips
They may ask why you want to work there. To answer this question you should be specific, honest, and show why you're a perfect fit for the job. A commonly asked question would be what is your greatest weakness. You should try to tell them a weakness that makes you look good, and tell them how you're trying to fix it. Where do you see yourself in five years? You should try and show them you have goals and drive that incorporate the company, but don't over exaggerate. Another question is why did you leave your last job? Don't say bad things about the company or trash your last employer cause it might show them you'll do the same to them.
After The Interview
Once the interview is over you should give tell them thank you for giving you an interview, and say goodbye with another firm handshake. To make you standout and show you really want the job you can send them a thank you letter. Also you can call them and ask when they are making their decision.
How To Dress For The Interview
To dress for an interview you should call and ask them what their standard apparel or uniform is if you do not know. You usually want to dress a step or two above what they usually wear. Don't wear a bunch of perfume, or cologne. Shave, shower, and look your best to standout and be confident.
