Getting a job interview can be exciting but also nervewrecking. It gets to the point that sometimes we can forget what's normal and what's not normal to do or say. Making that first impression can be tough and the toughest thing about it is that you only really have a few minutes to prove yourself before you're either hired, or before you're back at the first step again, sending your resume.
Job Interview Dos:
You do want to make sure you dress professionally whenever you're going to the establishment. Your appearance actually gives the interviewer a message without you having to say a word at all. However, you can possibly get by with dressing up in a business casual type of dress code, but dress anything 100% casual.
Always make sure to learn more about the company and their history. You'll be amazed at how many interviews always get the question about what all do you know about the company, and how vaguely these questions get answered. Learn about this company like it's the best company in the world, because that alone will get you one step ahead in getting hired.
Another simple thing you may want to do is show up to the job interview early. It can be up to thirty minutes from the interview itself, but it leads a great impression on how motivated you are at getting the job and also how dependable you are on showing up.
