  • Be able to identify and assess your strengths. Relate those strengths to the needs of the employer.
  • Gather information about the employer. If you know with whom you will be interviewing, look up information about each person...
  • Know how you communicate verbally.
  • Use correct grammar and pay attention to your diction.
  • Do not interrupt people when they are talking – this also comes in the form of anticipating the question before the interviewer is finished and interrupting with the answer. This does not show how smart you are. It just tells people you are rude.
  • On an interview, some people tend to become over anxious and interrupting becomes commonplace. Be careful that you are not offensive in this way.
  • ‘Eye to eye’ contact is important. Look at people.
  • Do not fidget with your hands or with pens or other objects. If you find yourself doing it, stop and put your hands on your lap or the arms of the chair.
