Useful Do's Dont's for Interviews (this is a must read for everyone)

Do's & Dont's for Interview


Interview DOs

1. Dress appropriately for the industry; err on the side of being conservative to show you take the interview seriously. Your personal grooming & cleanliness should be impeccable.

2. Know the exact time & location of your interview; know how long it takes to get there, park, find a rest room to freshen up, etc.

3. Arrive early; 10 minutes prior to the interview start time.

4. Treat other people you encounter with courtesy & respect. Their opinions of you might be solicited during hiring decisions.

5. Offer a firm handshake, make eye contact, & have a friendly expression when you are greeted by your interviewer.

6. Listen to be sure you understand your interviewer's name & the correct pronunciation.

7. Even when your interviewer gives you a first & last name, address your interviewer by title (Ms., Mr., Dr.) & last name,until invited to do otherwise.

8. Maintain good eye contact during the interview.

9. Sit still in your seat; avoid fidgeting & slouching.

10. Respond to questions for interview & back up your statements about yourself with specific examples whenever possible.

11. Ask for clarification if you don't understand a question.

12. Be thorough in your responses, while being concise in your wording.

13. Be honest & be yourself. Dishonesty gets discovered & is grounds for withdrawing job offers & for firing. You want a good match between yourself & your employer. If you get hired by acting like someone other than yourself, you & your employer will both be unhappy.

14. Treat the interview seriously & as though you are truly interested in the employer & the opportunity presented.

15. Exhibit a positive attitude. The interviewer is evaluating you as a potential co-worker. Behave like someone you would want to work with.

16. Have intelligent questions for interview prepared to ask the interviewer. Having done your research about the employer in advance, ask questions for interview which you did not find answered in your research.

17. When the interviewer concludes the interview, offer a firm handshake & make eye contact. Depart gracefully.



Interview DON'Ts

1 Don't make excuses. Take responsibility for your decisions & your actions.

2 Don't make negative comments about previous employers or professors (or others).

3 Don't falsify application materials or answers to interview questions for interview.

4 Don't treat the interview casually, as if you are just shopping around or doing the interview for practice. This is an insult to the interviewer & to the organization.

5 Don't give the impression that you are only interested in an organization because of its geographic location.

6 Don't give the impression you are only interested in salary; don't ask about salary & benefits issues until the subject is brought up by your interviewer.

7 Don't act as though you would take any job or are desperate for employment.

8 Don't make the interviewer guess what type of work you are interested in; it is not the interviewer's job to act as a career advisor to you.

9 Don't be unprepared for typical interview questions for interview. You may not be asked all of them in every interview, but being unprepared looks foolish.

10 A job search can be hard work & involve frustrations; don't exhibit frustrations or a negative attitude in an interview.

11 Don't go to extremes with your posture; don't slouch, & don't sit rigidly on the edge of your chair.

12 Don't assume that a female interviewer is "Mrs." or "Miss." Address her as "Ms." unless told otherwise. Her marital status is irrelevant to the purpose of the interview.

13 Don't chew gum or smell like smoke.

14 Don't allow your cell phone to sound during the interview. (If it does, apologize quickly & ignore it.) Don't take a cell phone call.

15 Don't take your parents, your pet (an assistance animal is not a pet in this circumstance), spouse, fiance, friends or enemies to an interview. If you are not grown up & independent enough to attend an interview alone, you're insufficiently grown up & independent for a job. (They can certainly visit your new city, at their own expense, but cannot attend your interview.)
