Three Tips for Interviewing
February 05, 2013
Bookmark and Share

Sometimes I need to remind myself that people just graduating from college may in many cases never interviewed for a job.  In fact, many Gen Y age men and women never worked when they were in school; not even summer employment.  


With that in mind, even basic tips might be helpful to someone going to an interview for the first time.  These are really basic:


  • Empty your pockets
  • Put of the mirror
  • Negotiate later


The one item I'll disagree with is not taking the interviewer up on something to drink.  You can get cotton mouth in a heartbeat and water is fine.  If offered--take it.

Trust me there is a great deal more to interviewing techniques, but this is a starting place.
