Think About It
An interview is a start to getting the job you want. Make sure you practice and are prepared for it. Make employers think that you are the perfect candidate for them. You already sold yourself on paper; now it is time to sell yourself in person. You're unique; show it! Be yourself. Be natural.
Now it's your turn to practice!
Activity: Interview your partner

Get Ready
There is more to an interview than just dressing nicely!
Make sure you keep your resume in a folder or portfolio to prevent it from getting dirty or folded.
Don't forget to bring a notebook and pen for taking notes or signing forms.
Bring I.D. and you S.I.N. card just in case you get hired on the spot!

Be on Time!!!!!
Always be on time to an interview!
Try to be there five to ten minutes before the interview time.
If you truly are going to be late then make sure you call the company and tell them.
Plan your route ahead of time.
See when the buses run or how long it will take to drive there.
If it is in a mall or outdoor plaza figure out where it is located within.
Stay Calm!
Be as calm as possible!
Maintain eye contact and show your confidence.
Listen carefully to the interview questions before you answer.
Take time to think about your answer.
It is better to think about your answer carefully than rush and totally deliver a horrible answer.
The Good and The Bad....
Show What You Know!
This is where you put all that research to use.
When answering or discussing your accomplishments match them to what the company is looking for.
Employers also love when interviewees have questions to ask them. Prepare these questions ahead of time?
"When will you be getting back to potentials employees?" "How many positions are you hiring for?"
Follow Up
A few days to a week after your interview follow up with a phone call asking about the hiring progress.
This will also show that you are still interested in the position.
DO NOT forget to thank them for the opportunity.
