Interviewing 101

kelsey-polaAfter completing the interview process for the fall semester, I’ve come up with a few suggestions for all of you go-getters.

Dress appropriately. I don’t particularly want to see your favorite graphic tee or torn-up blue jeans. Believe it or not, first impressions do count.

Check your spelling. If there’s a word mispelled on your resume – it’s au revoir.

Bring all of the necessary materials. If you want to be a graphic designer, I need to see some work, and if you would like to be a copywriter, I have to know you can write. If you’re not sure about what to bring – just ask!

Be nice to the secretary. She is the gatekeeper you know.

Know what you’re applying for. If you don’t even know what you’re applying for how do you expect to get the job?

Come to “wow.” We don’t have all day, so you have to be at your tip-top game to really impress. Confidence is always the key ingredient.

I’m by no means an expert, but after interviewing quite a few people, I’ve realized – as long as you’re good to go on these few tips, you’ve got the job!
