During the Interview

Greeting your Employer

Greet your employer by name with a firm handshake and smile.

When to arrive

You should arrive 5 to 10 minutes early which is enough time to not be worried about being late but not too early which would look strange.

What to bring

Bring extra copies of your resume so you can give it to more then one person if they ask. Other than that all you need is yourself.

Questions to ask

You can ask questions like:

  • When does the Job Start?
  • Ask for a quick tour
  • Ask how to grow in your job.

Dress for an interview.

Dress above.

Dress one step above where you are interviewing. This means if you are interviewing for a construction job don't show up in a suit and tie. Nice pants and a nice dress shirt would be fine.

Keep your body language positive, and appear humble.
