Ten Interviewing Rules

By Robert Shindell

Whether you are a first-time interviewer making your first transition to the world-of-work or a seasoned professional, these 10 interviewing tips are essential to your success!

1. Look Sharp.
Before the interview, select your outfit. Depending on the industry and position, get out your best duds and check them over for spots and wrinkles. Even if the company has a casual environment, you don't want to look like you slept in your clothes. Above all, dress with confidence. If you look good, you feel good.

2. Be on Time.
Never arrive late to an interview. Allow extra time to arrive early in the vicinity, allowing for factors like getting lost, traffic or weather. There’s an old saying, “Early is on time, on time is late & late is never there.” If you’re late for an interview, it’s probably not worth your time, since the company knows you’ll waste their’s.
