Surviving the Job Search

 

Every person headed into a job interview is looking for that special trick that will seal the deal. But the only trick is to cover the basics, be confident and be yourself.

  • Research the company's areas of expertise, goals and culture
  • Dress professionally (usually a suit or a close variation) and arrive a bit early 
  • Give a firm handshake and use good eye contact 
  • Prepare a list of questions relevant to the position you are seeking
  • Be confident and be yourself (this one is worth saying twice)
  • Follow up after the interview to show your level of interest
