THE INTERVIEW The interview is the single most important aspect of a successful job search. You must be able to sell yourself effectively to a prospective employer. This guide will offer tips and suggestions designed to give you a brief look at what you should do before, during and after an interview. PREPARING FOR THE INTERVIEW You have probably heard the old clich Practice makes perfect. This certainly holds true with the art of interviewing - practice and preparation are the absolute keys to success in delivering a top-notch interview performance. A job seeker going to a job interview without preparing is like an actor performing on opening night without rehearsing. You need to prepare for many different aspects of the interview, including: dressing for success, knowing your employer and yourself, knowing types of questions that may be asked during an interview, and honing your ability to make the interview a smooth-flowing, knowledgeable two- way exchange between you and the employer. Interview Attire Let us start with appearance it definitely counts! Some research studies prove that professional interviewers make 90 percent of their selection decisions within the first 10 minutes of the interview. Much of that cursory impression must be influenced by how you dress and how you look. The rationale for so much importance being placed on appearance: If you cannot put yourself together in a professional manner during the interview, why should the employer think you could do it on the job? Here are some general tips for dressing for the successful interview: Dress to suit your interviewer and the position for which you are inter viewing. Dress conservatively. You can be current in your fashion choices without displaying radical, trendy styles.

Men: a conservative 2-piece suit, white dress shirt and simple silk tie will usually be appropriate. Women: a relatively conservative suit or dress is recommended. Although pantsuits may be on their way to becoming an acceptable form of attire in the workplace, a safer bet would be to wear a suit or dress. Wear fresh, neat, and pressed clothing. Try laying out your interview outfit in advance of your interview - check for loose buttons, snags in clothing, dangling threads, scuffed shoes, etc. You will need a focused, clear mind when leaving for your interview disheveled clothing should not be a distraction or a potential confidence buster.
50 | P a g e

Avoid excessive make-up, jewelry, and perfume remember, more is not always better. A portfolio or briefcase will help complete the look of professionalism. OTHER CANDIDATE MAY CONSIDER THIS MANNER OF DRESSING FOR AN INTERVIEW DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF JOB OR POSITION APPLYING FOR Appropriate attire supports your image as a person and you should understand the dress code of the nature of the industry in which you are trying to become employed. Research shows that within 4-9 minutes of an interview the recruiter decides whether to seriously consider you for the position based on your appearance, which is an important factor in the decision-making process. Dress recommendations below are for traditional business settings (banking, law, consulting, insurance, etc.). Women: Well-fitted two-piece matched suit, blouse, pantsuit, or skirt with hosiery and basic dark flats or low pumps. Choose a dark or neutral shade like black, navy, brown or gray for your suit. Wear plain style, non-patterned hosiery; minimal or natural-looking makeup; and clean nails or clear nail polish that is not chipped. Nail length should not be excessively long. Minimize jewelry - avoid dangling earrings and wear no more than one ring per hand and a dress watch. Jewelry, scarves and other accessories will add a polished touch to any outfit. Do not carry a purse with a briefcase. As a precaution, take an extra pair of hose in case of a run. Perfume never should be strong. Men: Well- fitted suit in navy or gray (pinstripe or solid) or navy blazer and gray dress slacks; white or light blue dress shirt; tie (silk or silk-like) that contrasts with the color of your suit and contains understated patterns; dark socks (mid-calf) and dress shoes (lace-up, or leather slip-ons in either black or brown); leather belt that matches your shoes. A full-length coat, as nice as you can afford, can be worn over your suit. No strong cologne, avoid flashy cuff links, rings and neck chains. No earrings. Your belt should match your shoes. If you have a beard or mustache, it should be clean and neatly trimmed. Dress recommendations for other settings (education, nonprofit, etc.). Women: A two-piece matched suit or conservatively tailored dress with or without a jacket or jacket, skirt and blouse; hose and basic dark flats or low pumps. Choose a dark or neutral shade like black, navy, brown or gray for your suit. No extreme high slits. Minimal jewelry, scarves and other accessories will add a polished touch to any outfit. Nail length should not be excessively long. Wear plain style, non-patterned hosiery; minimal or naturallooking makeup; and clean nails or clear nail polish that is not chipped.

51 | P a g e

Men: Dress slacks (navy, dark gray and black) plus sport coat (wool or wool/polyester blend) or navy blazer; dress shirt, tie (silk or silk-like); white or light blue shirts are safest for most settings, but other solid, high quality cotton shirts can also be worn; dark socks (mid-calf) and dress shoes, tassel loafers, wing tip or laced shoes preferred. No strong cologne. Avoid flashy cuff links, rings and neck chains. No earrings. Your belt should match your shoes. If you have a beard or mustache, it should be clean and neatly trimmed.

52 | P a g e

Donts of Interview Dressing No visible body piercing beyond conservative ear piercing No stale breath...well-brushed teeth and breath No gum, candy, or other objects in your mouth Minimal jewelry No body odor - use deodorant No skirts above the knee-length No revealing or seductive clothing or turtlenecks No pastel-colored suits or flowered fabrics No short sleeve shirts or ties that tell a story for men No unpolished shoes ADDITIONAL ADVICE ON PROPER DRESSING AND GROOMING FOR JOB SUCCESS (Creative Job Search Article) Many of us object to being judged for employment based on how we look. We prefer to be hired because of our skills and abilities, not because of our dress and grooming. But whether like it or not, appearance is important. Employers hire people they believe will "fit" into their organization. Skills, experience and qualifications are important, but so are dress and grooming. Your appearance expresses motivation and professionalism. Dress as though you want the job, as though you already have the job. A visit to the company may help you decide the appropriate clothing to select for your interview. A good standard is to dress a step above how the best-dressed person dresses for a similar job. When in doubt, err on the conservative side. Your appearance is a statement of who you are. Your clothing and grooming should create the image that will help you get the job offer. First Impressions Most of us have heard the expression, "A picture is worth a thousand words." Remember this when preparing to meet with a prospective employer. The picture you create will greatly influence your chances of being hired. Most employers form a first impression during the first seven seconds of a meeting. Not much is said in this short time; early judgment is based strictly on appearance. Furthermore, studies reveal that employers consistently ask the question, "Does the individual look right for the job?" Clothing There are no absolute rules regarding dress. Your selection will vary based on your occupation, location and preference. A business suit for a construction job or overalls for an office job would not be appropriate dress. The goal is to look the part, to have your appearance be consistent with your
53 | P a g e

occupation. Neat, clean work clothes would be suitable for assembly, production or warehouse positions. Sales and office positions require business clothes. A conservative suit would be the recommended style for professional and managerial positions. Common sense and good taste are the best guides in selecting clothing for the interview. Avoid faddish styles and loud colors. Jewelry should be conservative and kept to a minimum. Clothing should fit comfortably. A basic rule is to dress one-step above what you would wear on the job. You want the employer to focus on your skills, not your clothes. The clothes you wear affect all your attitude and confidence levels. When people take the time to dress for success, they tend to feel good about themselves. Image alone will not win the job offer, but it will go a long way in building respect. Grooming Personal grooming is just as important as what you wear. You may select the right clothes, but neglecting personal hygiene can ruin the image you wish to present. Review the following grooming checklist before meeting with an employer. Goals of Appropriate Dress and Grooming The primary goal is to feel good about the way you look and project a positive image. When you feel good about yourself, you naturally convey confidence and a positive attitude. These nonverbal messages are as important in the interview as the verbal skills you use in selling your qualifications. Persistence and follow-up are the keys to a successful job search. If you are serious about employment, plan your follow-up. There is no such thing as a wasted effort, and the only dead lead is the one you chose to kill. Situations change and the employer who is not hiring today may be looking for someone with your qualifications in the future.

54 | P a g e

Questions Commonly Asked By Candidates During Employment Interviews Sometime during the conversation, you may find a lull occurring. This may be an excellent time to ask some of the questions that are on your mind. At some point, as the interview draws to a close, the interviewer will ask if you have any questions. Having well-thought-out questions will further impress the interviewer. Your questions should show a sincere interest in this particular employer, an awareness of the employer's needs, and how you can fulfill those needs. In general, good questions are those which are concrete but not so basic that they lead the interviewer to assume you have not researched the employer. Ask the most important questions first. Recognize that the employer may be on a tight time schedule. The lesser questions can be dealt with in the follow-up interview. An inappropriate question is one that deals with salary and fringe benefits. Remember, this is a screening interview. Both you and the interviewer are trying to determine if there is any interest. If there is, and a follow-up interview does take place, there will be ample time to discuss salary and fringe benefits. The following are examples of questions students have asked: What would my immediate responsibilities be if I am hired? What qualifications are most important to a person's advancement within your company? What would a typical day be like? What do you consider the biggest challenges I would face if I am hired? What are the things you most/least like about working here? Why are you looking to fill this position? (Is it a newly created position? Did the previous employee leave?) What type(s) of training programs will be made available to me as a new employee? Body Language and Your Voice As you may know, image is often as important as content. What you look like and how you say something is as important as what you say. Studies have shown that as much as 65 percent of the conveyed message is nonverbal - gestures, physical appearance, and attire are highly influential during job interviews. Following are some general tips on how to project a positive image using body language: When entering the room, give the appearance of high energy and self-confidence. Walk briskly with poise and SMILE! Shake hands firmly but do not crush bones. Maintain eye contact throughout the interview. Sit up straight.
55 | P a g e

Demonstrate that you are listening intently to the interviewer occasionally nod your head to show you are listening. Do not let your hands and fingers fidget (with themselves or other objects, such as a pen, paper, or your hair). Avoid folding your arms across your chest.

What can I expect in terms of job progression in your organization? How often would my performance be reviewed? Are there any new offices or sites being planned?

SAMPLE INTERVIEW QUESTIONS ASKED DURING THE INTERVIEW Remember, preparedness is your key to success! Take time and review some of the sample interview questions listed below and rehearse your responses. Not everyone is a natural storyteller, so keep practicing until you feel a high level of comfort. Keep your answers brief and concise, unless asked to give more detail. Limit your answers to 2-3 minutes per question. 1. Tell me about yourself The most often asked question in interviews. You need to have a short statement prepared in your mind. Be careful that it does not sound rehearsed. Limit it to work-related items unless instructed otherwise. Talk about things you have done and jobs you have held that relate to the position you are interviewing for. Start with the item farthest back and work up to the present. 2. Why did you leave your last job? Stay positive regardless of the circumstances. Never refer to a major problem with management and never speak ill of supervisors, co-workers or the organization. If you do, you will be the one looking bad. Keep smiling and talk about leaving for a positive reason such as an opportunity, a chance to do something special or other forward-looking reasons. 3. What experience do you have in this field? Speak about specifics that relate to the position you are applying for. If you do not have specific experience, get as close as you can. 4. Do you consider yourself successful? You should always answer yes and briefly explain why. A good explanation is that you have set goals, and you have met some and are on track to achieve the others. 5. What do co-workers say about you? Be prepared with a quote or two from co-workers. Either a specific statement or a paraphrase will work. 6. What do you know about this organization? This question is one reason to do some research on the organization before the interview. Find out where they have been and where they are going. What are the current issues and who are the major players? 7. What have you done to improve your knowledge in the last year? Try to include improvement activities that relate to the job. A wide variety of activities can be mentioned as positive self-improvement. Have some good
59 | P a g e

ones handy to mention.

60 | P a g e

8. Are you applying for other jobs? Be honest but do not spend a lot of time in this area. Keep the focus on this job and what you can do for this organization. Anything else is a distraction. 9. Why do you want to work for this organization? This may take some thought and certainly, should be based on the research you have done on the organization. Sincerity is extremely important here and will easily be sensed. Relate it to your long-term career goals. 10. Do you know anyone who works for us? Be aware of the policy on relatives working for the organization. This can affect your answer even though they asked about friends not relatives. Be careful to mention a friend only if they are well thought of. 11. What kind of salary do you need? A loaded question. A nasty little game that you will probably lose if you answer first. So, do not answer it. Instead, say something like, That is a tough question. Can you tell me the range for this position? In most cases, the interviewer, taken off guard, will tell you. If not, say that it can depend on the details of the job. Then give a wide range. 12. Are you a team player? You are, of course, a team player. Be sure to have examples ready. Specifics that show you often perform for the good of the team rather than for yourself is good evidence of your team attitude. Do not brag, just say it in a matter-offact tone. This is a key point. 13. How long would you expect to work for us if hired? Specifics here are not good. Something like this should work: I'd like it to be a long time. Or As long as we both feel I'm doing a good job. 14. Have you ever had to fire anyone? How did you feel about that? This is serious. Do not make light of it or in any way seem like you like to fire people. At the same time, you will do it when it is the right thing to do. When it comes to the organization versus the individual who has created a harmful situation, you will protect the organization. Remember firing is not the same as layoff or reduction in force. 15. What is your philosophy towards work? The interviewer is not looking for a long or flowery dissertation here. Do you have strong feelings that the job gets done? Yes. That's the type of answer that works best here. Short and positive, showing a benefit to the organization.

61 | P a g e

16. If you had enough money to retire right now, would you? Answer yes if you would. But since you need to work, this is the type of work you prefer. Do not say yes if you do not mean it. 17. Have you ever been asked to leave a position? If you have not, say no. If you have, be honest, brief and avoid saying negative things about the people or organization involved. 18. Explain how you would be an asset to this organization. You should be anxious for this question. It gives you a chance to highlight your best points as they relate to the position being discussed. Give a little advance thought to this relationship. 19. Why should we hire you? Point out how your assets meet what the organization needs. Do not mention any other candidates to make a comparison. 20. Tell me about a suggestion you have made. Have a good one ready. Be sure and use a suggestion that was accepted and was then considered successful. One related to the type of work applied for is a real plus. 21. What irritates you about co-workers? This is a trap question. Think real hard but fail to come up with anything that irritates you. A short statement that you seem to get along with folks is great. 22. What is your greatest strength? Numerous answers are good, just stay positive. A few good examples: Your ability to prioritize, Your problem-solving skills, Your ability to work under pressure, Your ability to focus on projects, Your professional expertise, Your leadership skills, Your positive attitude . 23. Tell me about your dream job. Stay away from a specific job. You cannot win. If you say the job you are contending for is it, you strain credibility. If you say another job is it, you plant the suspicion that you will be dissatisfied with this position if hired. The best is to stay genetic and say something like: A job where I love the work, like the people, can contribute and can't wait to get to work. 24. Why do you think you would do well at this job? Give several reasons and include skills, experience and interest. 25. What are you looking for in a job?
62 | P a g e

See answer # 23 26. What kind of person would you refuse to work with? Do not be trivial. It would take disloyalty to the organization, violence or lawbreaking to get you to object. Minor objections will label you as a whiner. 27. What is more important to you: the money or the work? Money is always important, but the work is the most important. There is no better answer. 28. What would your previous supervisor say your strongest point is? There are numerous good possibilities: Loyalty, Energy, Positive attitude, Leadership, Team player, Expertise, Initiative, Patience, Hard work, Creativity, Problem solver. 29. Tell me about a problem you had with a supervisor. Biggest trap of all. This is a test to see if you will speak ill of your boss. If you fall for it and tell about a problem with a former boss, you may well below the interview right there. Stay positive and develop a poor memory about any trouble with a supervisor. 30. What has disappointed you about a job? Don't get trivial or negative. Safe areas are few but can include: Not enough of a challenge. You were laid off in a reduction Company did not win a contract, which would have given you more responsibility. 31. Tell me about your ability to work under pressure. You may say that you thrive under certain types of pressure. Give an example that relates to the type of position applied for. 32. Do your skills match this job or another job more closely? Probably this one. Do not give fuel to the suspicion that you may want another job more than this one. 33. What motivates you to do your best on the job? This is a personal trait that only you can say, but good examples are: Challenge, Achievement, Recognition 34. Are you willing to work overtime? Nights? Weekends? This is up to you. Be totally honest. 35. How would you know you were successful on this job? Several ways are good measures: You set high standards for yourself and meet them. Your outcomes are a success. Your boss tells you that you are
63 | P a g e

successful

64 | P a g e

36. Would you be willing to relocate if required? You should be clear on this with your family prior to the interview if you think there is a chance it may come up. Do not say yes just to get the job if the real answer is no. This can create a lot of problems later on in your career. Be honest at this point and save yourself future grief. 37. Are you willing to put the interests of the organization ahead of your own? This is a straight loyalty and dedication question. Do not worry about the deep ethical and philosophical implications. Just say yes. 38. Describe your management style. Try to avoid labels. Some of the more common labels, like progressive, salesman or consensus, can have several meanings or descriptions depending on which management expert you listen to. The situational style is safe, because it says you will manage according to the situation, instead of one-size fits all. 39. What have you learned from mistakes on the job? Here you have to come up with something or you strain credibility. Make it small, well-intentioned mistake with a positive lesson learned. An example would be working too far ahead of colleagues on a project and thus throwing coordination off. 40. Do you have any blind spots? Trick question. If you know about blind spots, they are no longer blind spots. Do not reveal any personal areas of concern here. Let them do their own discovery on your bad points. Do not hand it to them. 41. If you were hiring a person for this job, what would you look for? Be careful to mention traits that are needed and that you have. 42. Do you think you are overqualified for this position? Regardless of your qualifications, state that you are very well qualified for the position. 43. How do you propose to compensate for your lack of experience? First, if you have experience that the interviewer does not know about, bring that up: Then, point out (if true) that you are a hard working quick learner. 44. What qualities do you look for in a boss? Be generic and positive. Safe qualities are knowledgeable, a sense of humor, fair, loyal to subordinates and holder of high standards. All bosses think they have these traits.
65 | P a g e

45. Tell me about a time when you helped resolve a dispute between others. Pick a specific incident. Concentrate on your problem solving technique and not the dispute you settled. 46. What position do you prefer on a team working on a project? Be honest. If you are comfortable in different roles, point that out. 47. Describe your work ethic. Emphasize benefits to the organization. Things like, determination to get the job done and work hard but enjoy your work are good. 48. What has been your biggest professional disappointment? Be sure that you refer to something that was beyond your control. Show acceptance and no negative feelings. 49. Tell me about the most fun you have had on the job. Talk about having fun by accomplishing something for the organization. 50. Do you have any questions for me? Always have some questions prepared. Questions prepared where you will be an asset to the organization are good. How soon will I be able to be productive? and What type of projects will I be able to assist on? are examples. www.traininglynk.com
