How serious am I?

  • WHY did you pick the score you did?
visible body piercings
Visible Body Piercings
  • How much is too much?
  • When are they appropriate?
  • Should you remove them for the interview or only when you get the job?
  • Biggest “NO” = facial piercings
  • Sometimes acceptable = tongues
  • Most acceptable = various ear piercings
basic guidelines
Basic guidelines:
  • Closed toe shoes
  • No shorts, short skirts or jeans
  • Clean, neat and conservative
  • Never show the interviewer your belly, back or too much cleavage
  • Leave funky fashion at home – you want to stand out because of your skills, not your extreme state of dress
basic guidelines13
Basic Guidelines:
  • Neat and clean appearance
  • Under no circumstances should the interviewer know the answer to the question, “Boxers or Briefs”
  • Neat hair, clean shaven
  • Wear conservative clothing instead of sports wear or items with logos
  • Remove excessive jewelry and any earrings.
facial hair guidelines
Facial Hair Guidelines:
  • Any facial hair must be neat, groomed, trimmed and well kept
  • Know the company’s policy before you waste your (and their) time interviewing …if you are especially attached to your moustache or goatee and would refuse to shave
  • 5 o’clock shadow will impress no one
mannerisms that will get you noticed in a bad way
Mannerisms that will get you noticed (in a bad way)!
  • No eye contact, no smile
  • Slouching
  • Slang
  • Talking on your cell phone or having your cell phone ring at all
  • “Uhhhh”
  • Not shaking our hands and saying, “thank you” at the end of the interview
be prepared
Be prepared:
  • Know the answer to the following question, “Why should this Company hire you over other applicants with the same amount or slightly more work experience than you”?
  • A resume will make your application stand out over other students/teens also trying to get a job.
  • Know the Company for which you are applying – visit the web site, visit the workplace before you interview – then you will have an idea of who you could potentially be working for.
a few extra wow s
A few extra “WOW”s…
  • Know the name of the person interviewing you, at the end of the interview say, “Thank you very much for your time Mr. Jones”.
  • Ask for the interviewer’s business card, use the information to send them a quick “thank you” note, thanking them for their time, and letting them know you are excited about the possibility of working for their Company.
  • If you are unsure of what is appropriate, call the HR Department of the Company and simply ask – they will help you out.
