Interviews can be intimidating & overwhelming to walk into...concerns about arriving on time, locating the appropriate office (not to mention parking), and making a good first impression with body language and professional attire all contribute to the intimidation.
Our Tip: Reduce Risk by Practicing & Preparing the Day Before the Interview
Practice makes progress! Practice answers to common interview questions. Use a mirror, practice with a friend or even record yourself to build confidence & check your body language.
Take time to learn about the employer in addition to the specifics about the position. Your efforts will display a true interest in the position & work with the company. Many interviewers start by asking what candidates know about the position or company. Don't miss the opportunity to put your best foot forward!
3. Map Out Your Route
Doing a dry run the day before can help to ensure you don't get lost or arrive late. Try to do so around the same time of day as the interview to account for traffic or public transportation schedules.
4. No Surprises!
Confirm your transportation, childcare & anything else that could interfere with your ability to arrive as your best self at the interview! Have backup plans in place should something fall through.
5. Prepare Your Attire
Select your most confidence-inspiring professional outfit! Make sure it is clean, wrinkle-free & ready to be worn. If you need assistance with suiting, you know who to call!
Get a good night's sleep to make sure you are rested & ready to deliver your best! Getting enough rest also helps to ensure you don't sleep through your alarm & miss the interview!
Remember, the more you can do ahead of time to prepare, the less you'll have to worry about the day of the interview! Set yourself up for success!
