A few key Interview Tips 

Be yourself and stay true to who you are:  

You may be nervous about the interview and you may try to change yourself, but don’t do that. Stay true to who you are.  

Practice makes perfect: You don’t want to be sweating and nervous while giving your interview. Practice answering interview questions at home so you feel confident when you are at the interview.  

Stay positive: No matter what the interviewer asks you, stay positive and keep a smile on your face. The interviewer is looking for someone positive to work with.  

Have good eye contact: Good eye contact shows that you are confident and you are listening to what the interviewer is saying.  

Don’t be late: Arrive 10 to 15 minutes early for the interview. Don’t be late because it shows the interviewer that you don’t respect their time.  

Have questions ready: Many people forget to ask the interviewer questions. You want to be prepared and have questions ready for the interviewer, so you don’t forget to ask.  

Be yourself and have confidence: Stay true to who you are and have confidence that you will get the job. Stay positive and remember that everything will work out.
