- Research. Learn all you can about the company beforehand so you can ask intelligent questions.
- Dress Professionally. First impressions are made with the eyes initially. Don’t underestimate how quickly people pass a judgment. They’re only human after all.
- Tell Stories. Tell at least 3 stories before the end of the interview. Don’t just say you’re hardworking, tell a story exemplifying a time when you worked hard.
- Follow Up. This is the crucial last step and can be a determining factor. Make sure to follow up with the interviewer and thank them for taking the time to meet with you.
