Last Minute Interview Tips

I have a job interview coming up.  I’ve read all the handouts on your website, I’ve practiced questions with my roommate, and I’ve researched the company.  And I have a professional business suit.  Any other last minute tips?

Good job. Sounds like you’re well prepared! You probably know all this, but here are a few additional pointers:

Shine your shoes.

Bring extra copies of your resume, placed in a portfolio (carried in your left hand so you can shake hands with your right hand).

Lean forward in your seat during the interview.

Exude enthusiasm and a genuine interest in the organization and the job.

Ask questions about the job’s daily responsibilities and prospects for advancement with the organization.

Follow up the interview with a thank-you card or email.

Good luck!
