  general information
  Going into interview with your potentially new employer can be stressful. Here are some tips to help make the situation go a little easier.
  preparing for the interview
  Know the exact place and time of the interview, the interviewer's full name, and his or her title.
  Review the company's literature prior to interviewing.
  Determine how the opportunity will impact your immediate and long-term career development.
  Know what questions to ask during the interview. The better you understand the opportunity,
the more you will be able to communicate your interest in the position.
  Always wear proper attire.
  the interview
  Plan to arrive a few minutes early. Late arrival for a job interview is never excusable.
  If you are presented with an application, fill it out neatly and completely.
  Greet the interviewer by his or her name, if possible.
  Give the appearance of confidence as you enter.
  Greet your interviewer with a firm handshake and an enthusiastic smile.
  Wait to be offered a chair before sitting down. Sit upright, look alert and interested at all times.
Be a good listener as well as a good communicator.
  Always look the interviewer in the eye while speaking.
  Try to get the interviewer to describe the position and the duties to you early in the interview
so that you can apply your background, skills, and accomplishments to the position.
  Be able to elaborate on the information in your resume.
Be prepared to answer in-depth questions about your accomplishes, strengths and weakness.
  Show passion and interest in your recent jobs and accomplishments.
  Before the discussion ends, ask if you should clarify any points in the discussion.
  do's and don'ts
  Do ensure your cell phone is turned off during the interview.
  Do stress your previous achievements.
  Do conduct yourself as if you are determined to get the job you are discussing.
  Do bring at least two copies of your resume in case you're asked to interview with others.
  Don't chew gum.
  Don't answer with a simple "yes" or "no." Explain your answer whenever possible.
  Don't lie. Answer questions truthfully and honestly.
  Don't make derogatory remarks about your present or former employers. When explaining
your reasons for leaving, try to keep all comments positive.
  closing the interview
  If you are interested in the position, let the interviewer know.
  Don't be discouraged if no commitment has been made. The interviewer will probably want to
communicate with other people in the company or possibly interview more candidates before
making a decision.
  Always thank the interviewer for his or her time and consideration.
  after the interview
  Prospective employers appreciate thank you cards. If you send one, you will stand out.
