You know what job you want. You know that it’s open, and that if you can just get your foot in the door you’ll get it. Are you ready to get your foot in the door? Getting a job is not just about being qualified. It’s about going above and beyond. Have you?
1. Worked on staying current?- All of the people who are interviewing for this job know the same things you do. What is setting you apart?
2. Revised your resume?- Have you tailored it to fit your new job?
3. Practiced talking about yourself?- You should be able to sum up your qualifications in roughly 30 seconds to a minute
4. Made sure your interview outfit is read?- Keep it simple, and keep it neat.
Also, if you’re a woman, keep your make-up simple: no bright blue eye shadow, no bright red lipstick, no glittery powders. Your make-up should be professional, understated. Hair should also be professional: you’re not going out on a date, but to an interview. And older ladies, if you’re going (or have gone) grey, consider getting your hair tinted – I did!
