Listen, I know you may be nervous and jittery about your next job interview, especially if it’s for an awesome opportunity you’ve been looking forward to.
Whatever you do, please AVOID these six actions I’m about to discuss…if you have any hope of landing this job or career opportunity.
The first thing to AVOID – Being late.
The second thing to AVOID – Dressing inappropriately.
The third thing to AVOID – Bringing your phone in the interview with the ringer on.
The fourth thing to AVOID – Going to the interview not knowing anything about the company.
The fifth thing to AVOID – Being dismissive or not paying attention to the receptionists or front desk personnel.
This is the 6th and final part of the six part series. You can find the first five parts of the interview series in previous posts on the site, if this is your first time being introduced to the information. So, let’s jump right into this…
Avoid #6 Going to the interview without copies of your resumes, professional references, professional business cards or other relevant career tools.
It’s so important to have your career tools handy, especially during an interview. Keep in mind, the interviewer may not ask for it but if they do…then have them ready! Think of this interview process using your career tools as target practice…the job or career opportunity is the target and each of your career tools (resume, cover letter, thank you letter-post interview, business cards, letters of recommendation) are arrow used to hit the target.
If you don’t have your career tools, your targeted job or career opportunity may eventually slip away. Do you want career opportunities to slip away because you weren’t ready? I think not.
If you’re struggling with how well your career tools are working for you, I recommend checking out the career tools review service to assure your career tools are optimized to help you get the DREAM Career you want!
