Interview Etiquette – Be BAD

Be on time! Traffic delays are something we can never prepare for and they always come at the worst time. If you are not familiar with the company location, do a dry run the night before to make sure you know how to get there. If you are detained, for whatever reason, stop and call. “If you call, you’re never late.” It’s better to be early and sit in the parking lot than to show up late. At a minimum, plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early to allow enough time to sign in and go to the bathroom. If you are asked to wait, make use of the time by reviewing information about the company and the position.

Attire. Business casual may be the norm, but it’s always best to overdress than to under dress for an interview. A well-pressed suit or shirt/blouse and tie/scarf are always acceptable unless the interviewer has instructed you differently, and then follow their instructions. If unsure about the dress code, just ask. You want to present a clean-cut, conservative image.

Demeanor and Manners. Be courteous, polite, and appreciative (but not subservient) with everyone you meet–from the receptionist to the president. You should project a confident (but not cocky) presence. Smile and give good, firm handshakes. This is a great way to relax and start off the interview on a positive note, and remember to smile throughout the interview when appropriate. Always make sure you use good posture throughout the interview and close with another smile and a firm handshake to thank the interviewer for their time.
