Job Tips

Go on many interviews in your industry to learn how to ace a job interview. Interviewing is a skill. Focus on looking the interviewer in the eye or the tip of their nose. Remember that first impressions are everlasting. Think about what skills need to be improved on your end.

Are you dressing to impress? Are you wearing appropriate jewelry? One pair of earrings are appropriate for interviews and work. If your job permits you to wear a nose ring, one small post is appropriate. Hand rings should be limited to one ring per hand. Refer to employee handbook for dress code specific to your company.

Wear appropriate hair style, have your hair a naturally occurring hair color, such as blond, brunette, brown, red (ginger), gray, or black. Remember to speak in complete sentences and avoid slang. Remember to speak instead of using hand and/or body gestures. Pay attention to your body language (no folded arms, hand on forehead etc.). Practice answering interview questions with friends or family or even in the mirror.

With these tips you should be able to have a successful job interview!
