                         TO DO:
                                                                            @ A JOB INTERVIEW        Derek Wooton                                                             NOT TO DO:
1) Dress nicely. You have one chance to make a good impression of yourself . So get                                  1) No tattoos/ piercings. If you’ve got tattoos, make sure they’re not visible. Take
out the nice clothes and spiffy up.                                                                                  your piercings out if you’re a guy. You won’t be taken seriously. If you’re a girl, don’t
                                                                                                                     wear earrings that are out there. Small and conservative is what you should aim for.
2) Sit up. No matter what the job is, be it at McDonald’s or a career, sit up. Don’t be
slouchy.                                                                                                             2) Lie. If you get the job and they find out you lied during your interview, they might
                                                                                                                     fire you.
3) Be prepared. You’re going to be asked a lot of questions so make sure you’re ready
to think on the spot. Also there’s probably going to be questions about you and how                                  3) Be shy/ tense. Grow up, speak up and talk to the person interviewing you. You
well you work, what your weaknesses are etc. Know yourself and be straightforward.                                   applied for the job, so don’t go to the interview quiet and tense.

4) Be yourself. You got in for the interview so you probably are going to get the job.                               4) Wear plaid. The person might look at you and you and laugh. Plaid represents
Be yourself. Be comfortable but not too comfortable.                                                                 two things: redneck or Scottish.

5) Give good handshakes. You’re probably going to have to shake hands with the                                       5) Make inappropriate jokes. There’s nothing worse than tossing something out
person interviewing you, so stand up straight, take hold of their hand and give a nice                               there that’s offensive or not funny. So be safe. Don’t joke too much unless you know
firm shake, none of that shy, barely- touching- their hand crap.                                                      it will be funny to everyone.
