The Day of Your Interview

If your first interview is on the phone, make sure you're rested and ready earlier than scheduled. If the interview is in person, be sure to get good directions in advance along with transit options (and available parking) if applicable. Bring I.D., a few copies of your resume and a professional notebook and pen. Arrive early so you h​ave time to prepare beforehand. Be sure to turn your cellphone off so you have no interruptions. Prepare ​​questions for the interviewer, and be sure to ask about next steps.

Follow-up: Manners that Matter

Want to be in the top ten percent? Then do what great brands do - differentiate yourself. Very few applicants take the time to formally thank interviewers after meeting for an interview. By writing a personal thank-you note, you not only show gratitude, you also demonstrate that you have social skills and etiquette that will go far within the organization and with clients, customers and vendors. Write notes to all the interviewers within 24 hours of your interview. An email is acceptable; however texting a prospective employer is not acceptable. What to say? A thank-you note is a great way to show the interviewer that you are interested in the opportunity and to reiterate how your qualifications align with the company's needs.
