Making a Mouth-Watering Impression: Tips from Employers
When asked, representatives from companies, including Continental, said that what makes a candidate stand out in an interview is: Arrive early About 10 minutes early is the earliest you want to present yourself; the longer you are there, the longer they can observe you Dress professionally Make sure clothes are ironed and neatly pressed Ladies, no open toed shoes Keep hair neat Make eye contact...and smile; it gives the impression you are confident Early in the interview ask a few questions about job duties or the company Do your homework so you can ask intelligent questions If interested in the job, let the employer know at the end of the interview Be prepared Bring a couple of extra copies of your resume with you Ask questions at the end of the interview Follow up with a thank you email or note
Employers are looking for people with good communication and interpersonal skills, not just technical or educational skills. Its no longer just about your GPA or your technical abilities, they want you to be an active, flexible and adaptable member of their team. If you can convey these qualities to the employer, you are on your way to leaving them with a mouth-watering impression of you and your abilities.
