So tell me a little about yourself
Stand when the interviewer stands, this is your cue. Offer your hand for a handshake and tell them you appreciate the time they took for the interview. Let them know you want the job.
“I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.”
“I appreciate your time interviewing me, I am interested and really want to work for you.”
Look back as you exit. Smile and say good-bye to the receptionist/secretary. Remember you have a better chance to get the job if everyone likes you.
If you are offered the job and want it ask for a second interview to discuss particulars such as wages, benefits and hours.
If you do not want the job respectfully decline.
If you are not offered the job be kind and ask if there was anything that would have changed their mind. It may help you in the next interview. Also, do not burn bridges, you never know, if the person they hired does not work out they may call you instead.
It can be a great learning experience no matter the outcome.
