Keep These Tips in Mind For Your Next Interview

Now that we’ve discussed how to craft your resume and master your cover letter, Danielle Hawkins, AFA’s HR Coordinator, is back this week to discuss a few key tips to keep in mind while you prepare for an upcoming interview to help you land the job.

First, Danielle says, it is still very important to dress professionally, unless told otherwise. Being “dressed for success” gives the appearance that you are willing to go the extra mile and put professionalism first.

Next, always have copies of your resume and cover letter printed and ready to deliver to your interviewer. Be sure to bring extra copies in case there is more than one person interviewing you.

Lastly, arrive to your interview at least 15 to 20 minutes early. This will give you enough time to find the location and mentally prepare for your big day.

Just remember, confidence and authenticity go a long way in an interview. So just be yourself!
