Job interviews can be one of the most stressful things especially when it’s a job you really want. Let us give you our best advice to land the job you’ve been wanting!
Being prepared and professional are the two key parts of having a good and successful interview! Remember to not be demanding when inquiring about a job, business owners have a lot on their plate.
Yes, they can be extremely annoying and hard to write but your resume is your future employers first look at you. Think short and sweet! Here are a few things you absolutely need in your resume.
- First and Last Name
- Current Home Address
- Phone Number
Add some skills you’ve gained during your past or current jobs, here are a few examples.
- Health and Safety Management
- Critical Analysis
- Leadership Skills
Make sure you put your prior job experience(s) and 2-3 examples of what you did at your job to give your future employers a good idea of the type of work you did. For example, if you were a receptionist you could say “I gained financial and organizational skills by opening and closing cash registers.”
Lastly add any education you’ve had, if you’re still in school (high school or college), put your school and continuing education, the month/year you started – month/year you’re estimated to graduate. Adding volunteer hours to your resume also looks great! Especially if you’ve never had a job before.
Remember: Honesty is the best policy so don’t lie on your resume!
In my opinion the outfit is probably the hardest part of an interview. With any interview you should look professional but levels of professionalism with outfits can vary between jobs. TikTok and Pinterest are great resources if you’re feeling stuck! Please DO NOT wear jeans, leggings, or sweatpants to ANY job interview. Express and Old Navy have tons of trendy interview outfits!
“Dress for the job you want, not the job you have, and you have to start doing the work you want to be doing.”-Austin Kleon
When sending emails, letters, or interviewing in person be sure to NOT use abbreviations! A few examples of what not to do are b/c, gr8, btw, idk, irl, and ty!
The Actual Interview
Every interviewer is going to ask different questions so it can be difficult to prepare! Try researching about the business you’re interviewing with to help give you a good idea of who they are. I always bring a paper copy of my resume, make sure my phone is on silent, give a good handshake and make sure you’re making eye contact through the interview. Answering the questions honestly and professionally is going to give you the best results. No matter how your interview goes always thank the interviewer!
I wish you all the best of luck and hope you nail your interview!
