At Referral Staffing Solutions, we know the ins and outs of interviews, so we wanted to give you a few tips to get you through your interview and land that new job!

  • Research The Company

Go to the company website and find out all you can about the company before you go in. If you have any questions, bring them with you. It will show the interviewer that you are thorough, and you know how to research and find the information you will need.

  • Practice The Interview

Create a list of possible questions you might be asked and practice answering them. You can practice with friends, or there are websites that will allow you to practice your interviewing skills with a professional and they can provide feedback.

  • Dress To Impress

Your attire says a lot about you. Always dress appropriately, have good hygiene, if you wear nail polish make sure it isn’t chipped, and present yourself like you want the company to view you – pay attention to the details. Business attire is always a good choice.

  • Be On Time To The Interivew

Make sure to arrive at least 10 minutes early to the Interview. This is not the time to be late. The company will appreciate your respect for their time.

  • Be Respectful of the Interviewers 

Give the utmost respect for interviewers that are conducting the interview and asking you the questions. They are the people who are going to make the decision as to whether or not you will be hired. Make sure you are using good posture, making eye contact, and are answering their questions fully.

  • Write and Mail Thank You Letters Immediately After the Interview

This may seem outdated, but it will make a lasting impression on the interviewers and when they get that letter, it will help them remember you, especially if they haven’t already made their decision. In your thank you letter, thank your interviewers for their time and consideration in reviewing them for the job opportunity.
