How to have a Successful Interview

There are many components to a successful interview. Here are just a couple of ways to ensure you have a positive experience.

Do a little research on the potential college/employer before you go.

Make sure you schedule your own appointment.

Dress appropriately.

Be on time.

Turn off your cell phone.

Have a firm handshake.

Arrive prepared for a conversation. Be prepared to talk about your experiences, interests, likes and dislikes. What have you learned from your challenges?

Make eye contact.

Send a thank you note within two to three days after the interview.

Relax… it is only a conversation

Think about what you want to say before you say it. Do not use filler words like “um” or “like.”
