Interview Behavior

Interviewers are not just wondering if you are skilled enough for the job, they are often wondering if you would fit in nicely with your co-workers. Your personality is a big part of your interview and can make all the difference. 

Here are some of the little things that you should pay particularly close attention to during an interview: 

  • Smile, Greet and Thank
  • Eye contact
  • Firm handshake
  • Treat everyone in the building as if they are the hiring manager… they might be!
  • Speak clearly, don’t swallow your words
  • Don’t use slang… and don’t say “like” unless it’s appropriate
  • Don't chew gum
  • Good posture
  • Use active listening techniques 
  • Mirror the interviewer
