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.
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.”
