Intervew Tips!

Posted By Jaren Love, GAIN Intern, Friday, May 14, 2010

Recently, the Boston Globe featured a piece on good job interview practices. Following some of the advice from this piece, as well as attending Democratic GAIN’s Resume & Job Search Tips Workshop next Thursday the 20th, can put you a few steps closer to landing that dream job.

Remember -the job interview is a conversation – don’t let it become one sided by rambling or being too short in your responses to the interviewer.

Additionally, researching the firm you are interviewing for is vital to interview success. Going into an interview with a solid understanding of the employer is crucial. Make sure you have a basic background on what the employer does and relevant recent news about the firm. Be prepared to ask questions at the end - having no questions about the place you are interviewing conveys that you are not engaged in what the organization does. Also remember to never ask about benefits, vacation time, or salary during the initial interview.

Try practicing a mock interview with a friend in front of a video camera and look for ways to improve! Click here for more tips from the Globe's article.
