3) Arrive early for interview

Be punctual for your interview. The best is to be there 15 minutes early prior to your interview to allow time to calm yourself. The day before the interview, pack up extra copies of your resume or CV. Finally, remember to pack several pens and a pad of paper to jot notes. Finally, as you get to the offices, shut off your cell phone.

4) Confidence during interview

Send a positive message using your body language. Shake hands firmly, but only if a hand is offered to you first. Always maintain eye contact and listen carefully. Welcome all questions even the difficult ones, with a smile. Give honest, direct answers. Develop answers in your head before you respond. If you do not understand a question, ask the interview to either repeat or clarify the questions for you. You don’t have to rush to answer questions thrown to you, but you don’t want to appear indecisive.

5) End the interview with a good impression.

A positive end to the interview is another way to ensure your success. Be courteous and allow the interview to end on time. Restate any strengths and experiences that you might not have emphasized earlier. Mention a particular accomplishment or activity that fits the job. Find out if there will be additional interviews. Indicate a time when you may contact the employer to learn of the decision. Don’t forget to send a thank-you note or letter after the interview.
