Prepare. Know your resume; both past and present. Make sure you know the dates of employment, people you worked for and responsibilities of the position you held.
Dress Professionally: Professional attire speaks volumes. It demonstrates your respect for the hiring manager and that you are serious about the opportunity.
Research. Log on to social network sites to gain more information and access to company. Study the company’s website. Find out about company’s plan of action and the direction they are taking.
Be Enthusiastic. A positive outlook and personality goes a long way. Even when talking about the worst boss ever, it is important to have a positive outcome.
Identify your Skills and Accomplishments. Think about how you saved the company money, system implementations you performed, recommendations you made.
Give them NO REASON to not hire you. State why they will be better off having you there. What separates you from the “good” candidates and classified you into the “great!”
References. Be proactive and think ahead. Compile a list of the best references you can furnish your Recruiter; the hiring managers you made an impact on; the colleagues who could depend on you at all times.
Be Confident. A strong handshake and reassurance of your skills.
Last Minute Check. Look in the mirror and make sure blouse/shirt is tucket in, etc…
Follow-Up. Confer with Recruiter regarding note and interest in position. This added effort will go a long way!
