Yes, It is that time of year. For graduating seniors like myself, we are running off campus to look for our first “big kid” job. Interviews can come natural for some, but may be more difficult for others. I’ve put together a quick Do’s and Don’t list based on my experiences:
Do take a practice run to the location where you are having the interview — or be sure you know exactly where it is and how long it takes to get there.
Don’t chew gum during the interview.
Do remember that the interview is also an important time for you to evaluate the interviewer and the company she/he represents.
Don’t inquire about salary, vacations, bonuses, retirement, or other benefits until after you’ve received an offer.
Do ask intelligent questions about the job, company, or industry.
Don’t ever not ask any questions — it shows a lack of interest
Do try and get business cards from each person you interviewed with — or at least the correct spelling of their first and last names.
Don’t make assumptions about simple names — was it Jon or John — get the spelling.
Do write thank you within 24 hours to each person who interviewed you.
