What to Do on Interview Day

At last! Your big day has arrived.
Keep the following in mind as you prepare for your big interview.

  • Wear minimal jewelry; try to limit yourself to a watch if possible.
  • Have neat hair; if it is long, have it pulled back.
  • Shower, and use deodorant.
  • Stay away from perfume or cologne.
  • Clean your nails.
  • Be sure to have fresh breath:
    -- Eat before your interview, but avoid dishes with tuna or garlic.
    -- Carry mints with you.
  • Empty your pockets.
    -- No jingling coins!
  • No nose rings, gum, cigarettes, sandals, or spiked heels
  • Cover any tattoos, if possible.
  • No mobile phones!
  • Do not text while you are sitting in the waiting area:
    -- Be ready to make eye contact, stand up, and offer your handshake when your name is called by the interviewer.
  • Carry portfolio with a pen and copies of your resume.
