The Start Of The Interview (Beginning)

  • Inform the secretary/receptionist that you have an interview, whom it is with, and the time of the interview.
  • When you meet the interviewer, look straight into his/her eyes, shake hands firmly, introduce yourself, smile, be confident and wait until you are offered a seat.
  • Be positive in your communication (Remember: You’re selling yourself!!), don’t slouch, try not to be too bold or too shy. Let the interviewer lead the interview. Express that you are happy to have the opportunity to be interviewed.
  • When all else fails: SMILE!!
  • DON’T:

    Smoke, chew gum, curse, slouch, put your hands on items on the interviewer’s desk, fidget with rings, pens, ties, loose change, or other things in your reach.
