Interview Do’s and Don’ts
DO Arrive early; at least 10 minutes is preferable. Being late for an interview is NEVER excusable.
DO Make eye contact, extend a firm handshake, and greet your interviewer with respect and courtesy. You only have one chance to make a first impression.
DO Have a positive attitude. Potential employers find a high energy and confidence level very attractive. However, avoid being overly aggressive.
DO Emphasize your achievements and make sure that your positive attributes are expressed to the interviewer.
DO End the appointment by letting the interviewer know that you are extremely interested in the position, and would like to know the next step in the hiring process. There are some career experts that say that an interview should be ended by asking for the job.
