If presented with a job application, fill it out neatly, completely, and accurately.
Bring extra resumes to the interview. (Even better, if I have a job skills portfolio, bring that with me to the interview.)
Not rely on my application or resume to do the selling for me; I know I need to sell myself to the interviewer.
Greet the interviewer with a big smile and call him or her by his or her title (Ms., Mr., Dr.) and last name. I’ll confirm the pronunciation of the interviewer’s name (if questionable) with the receptionist before going into the interview.
Shake hands firmly and avoid a limp or clammy handshake!
Wait until I am offered a chair before sitting. I will be aware of my body language and posture at all times; I will sit upright and look alert and interested at all times. I will avoid fidgeting or slouching.
Avoid telling jokes during the interview.
