    Good Interview Techniques in this online video

    Effective Personal Presentation includes Preparation!

  • Selection of appropriate clothing-- Basic, well-cut, classic (no fads).

  • Ensure clothing is in good repair.
    ie. No rips, missing buttons, clean, no stains and try on prior to the actual date to ensure a proper fit.

    ** Reader's Tip: Always dress for the next higher position, not the one you are going for.

  • Role-play with a friend or family member by having questions presented to you.
    (Hint: Can facilitate confidence and have answers "on the tip of your tonque.")

  • Practice posture, eye contact, handshake with a friend.

  • Prior to the day of the interview make every effort to locate the correct building and survey the amount of parking spaces as well as proximity to the building.

  • Allowing for sufficient time to arrive at the actual office will boost confidence level and ensure you will be a calm and self-assured job applicant!

  • Good Luck!
