  • Choose an outfit that’s appropriate and nice-looking, and also one that you’re comfortable wearing.
  • What should you bring with you on an interview?
  • Know exactly where you are going! Practice driving there beforehand so you are familiar with the area.

  • G and Michelle go over what you do once you have arrived for the interview.
  • Pick up a magazine relevant to the business. Don’t choose a social magazine, but choose one relevant to the industry to which you are applying.
  • When they greet you to bring you back for the interview, extend your hand, make good eye contact!
  • When walking into the interview room, choose a seat where you will feel most comfortable.
  • Don’t be afraid to brag about yourself! If you can, bring a work sample.
  • End the interview on a high note.
  • Follow-up after the interview with a very nice handwritten thank-you note.
