I recently20130216-222758.jpg went on my first job interview in several years. My interviewer mentioned several things that impressed him and were instrumental in me getting the job. Here they are.

  1. Be early. My dad was a navy man. He instilled in me the idea “if you’re early, you’re on time. If you’re on time, You’re late. If you’re late, you’re fired” the interviewers said he was impressed that I was early.
  2. Dress appropriately for an interview. No sweat pants, jeans, t shirts or other casual clothes. Dress to impress. Shower and wear clean clothes and shoes. Do not smoke before your interview. The interviewer mentioned interviewing a woman who reeked of cigarette smoke.
  3. Do not chew gum or have anything in your mouth.
  4. Be ready to answer any and all questions about your former job.
  5. Another thing the interviewer said impressed him, was the fact that in the last 10 years, I had only had 2 jobs. Neither of which I left willingly. Changing jobs often is a bad sign to prospective employers.
  6. your availability is key to being hired. Be willing to work any day. Increases your chance of being hired.
  7. Smile. Have clean teeth and fresh breath.
  8. No outlandish makeup or nail polish.
  9. Use manners, sir and ma’am show respect.
  10. Whether you get the job or not,thank the interviewer for their time.
