Practice Makes Perfect
Every interview will be slightly different, but having a solid elevator pitch and confidence will help ensure you move forward to the next round. There are a few ways to go about preparing your pitch and potential answers. The first is to just practice out loud. Write down some questions and run through answering them in front of the mirror. This may seem weird at first, but it will help you feel more confident in your delivery. Another way to practice is to ask a friend or your Grand Parkway apartment roommate run through a mock interview with you. Give them some questions and get all your pre-interview jitters out on them!
Plan Your Commute
Congrats on securing your interview! Now that you’re dressed and ready to go all you need to do is get there. To avoid any additional stress allow yourself plenty of time to get to your interview, especially if it requires driving to an area you are unfamiliar will.
Pad your drive time by an extra 10-15 minutes in the event you get lost, find yourself in unexpected traffic, or have need to find parking. If it’s all smooth sailing, this will give you a few extra minutes in the car to review any notes you have and mentally prepare yourself. Don’t worry though, you’ve got this!
Send A Thank You Note
Writing a thank you note is standard practice when interviewing with a company. In the digital age, you can choose to follow up with the employees you interviewed with an email or by connecting with them on LinkedIn and including a personal note. In your message include points to solidify why you are a great fit for the role or any other thoughts you may have had after leaving the interview.
And with that, you are all set to nail your next interview!
