Remember it’s an interview, not an interrogation. An interview that flows like a conversation is a successful interview! When I am asked a question, I first take a deep breath. Then begin my answer. The deep breath gives me those few seconds to collect myself, tame any anxiety or nerves, and answer confidently.
STAR Method – learn it! Situation, Task, Action, Result. This was the interview method that was pushed at Delta. I think it is a great interview style that can be applied to any company. Using the STAR Method will ensure your answers are detailed, concise, and easy to follow.
Dress to impress! You don’t need to go buy the most expensive suit to make a good impression. Following these 3 tips will guarantee dress success! First, wear what you are comfortable in. Make sure the shoes fit, the shirt stays tucked in, and your pants hit at the top of your shoe with one, no more than two folds. Second, bring an emergency kit! Sewing kit, stain remover, and lint roller will be your best friend. You must be prepared for every situation – interview related or not! Lastly, don’t wear black and white! Black and white is standard and boring. Spice it up with a cream-colored top, a blue or grey suit, or maybe a pop of color with socks or a tie.
Make your first impression your best impression! Bring a thank you card addressed to the team of interviewers. In the letter, it is best to reference the values and morals of the company and how you will uphold them if provided the opportunity to work for the company. Some other points to highlight may be your strengths and willingness to learn. Finish your letter with a sincere gesture of gratitude!
Good luck! Have confidence and keep faith! & Remember – they want to fill the position as much as you want the job!!
