DO YOUR HOMEWORK
Every aspect of the interview process is very important. However, doing your research before hand and being prepared gets you started on the right path to receiving an offer.
A day or two before the interview, take some time to thoroughly research the company, their culture, products, services, current staff and recent news. Some sources to consider are their corporate website, LinkedIn, twitter, Facebook, and search engines.
Examine the technical requirements and engage in self study to prepare yourself for any technical questions that may come your way. Mentally highlight your accomplishments as they relate to the position and company.
Prepare any questions you would like to ask the interviewer(s). For example, "What are some of your toughest challenges?", "What are the top 3 things you look for in a candidate for this position?", or "Where do you see the company 5 years from now?".
Be mindful of your appearance. You only have one first impression, so dress to impress. Business casual or business professional attire is generally acceptable in today's market. However, contact your CONEXiS recruiter to find out your options. When in doubt, a suit is your best choice.
DON'T BE LATE
No matter what, DON'T BE LATE!! Be sure to map out your route ahead of time. Leave ample time for traffic situations, parking, etc. You should plan to walk in their door 15 minutes in advance of your scheduled interview.
VALIDATE YOUR CREDENTIALS
The day before the interview, prepare a notebook, copies of your resume, and if appropriate samples of your work. Some examples are design or project portfolios, code samples, technical documentation, or personal projects. If something is mentioned on your resume, be prepared to discuss in detail. Practice, Practice, Practice!
Finally, get a good night's sleep and rest assured you did all you can to do your best for the interview. That is a confident and comforting feeling you deserve!
