  • Job Interview Tips

    Well, I've got a job interview tomorrow... Trying to put myself in a better situation so that I don't wake up miserable everyday. (See the I Hate My Boss Thread)

    It is in a similar field, dealing with Communications and Marketing, only it would be centered around "E-Media"...

    I was just wondering if anyone had any good job interview tips for me? Perhaps there is a hiring manager lurking around Broncomania?

    I feel like I'm a pretty good interviewer. I'll do my homework on the company so that I look like I have a pretty good grasp on what they do and what their expectations will be. I'll have copies of my resume and other pertinant documents readily available, and of course, I will be wearing my best suit (Out of the 2 that I own )

    What else am I forgetting?

              Ask questions, not stupid ones of course, but questions that show your interest in the company and your job. Good luck.

                Some tips you may already know:

                Be 5 - 10 mins. early. If you are going to be late, definitely call.
                If they have a website, review it to get familiar with their company, business, etc.

                Here are a few links which may help:

                  Prepare a list of questions to ask them. Be conversational. Don't assume that you're just there to answer their questions - remember, they are trying to sell you as much as you are selling yourself to them. If you don't ask the right questions, you might end up taking another job you end up hating.

                  Some good questions to ask:

                  Describe your management style.

                  What is a typical day like for someone working in this position?

                  Why is this position available? Is it new? Why did the last person leave the position?

                  I'm looking for a career with (insert company name here). What are the opportunities for advancement from this position? Provided I do well in this position, what kind of timeframe would I be looking at for a promotion?

                  How often can I expect to receive feedback from my direct manager? How will I be evaluated?

                  Those are the ones I find are good to ask.

                  Good luck, and don't take the job if you have reservations.

                      I do alot of the hiring and promoting of managers in Public Relations/Advertising/Communications.

                      Be pleasant.
                      Be confident.
                      Allow the interviewer to see you can be a leader, follower, and a team player.

                      No matter what, convince the interviewer you can do the job.
                      If you can't step in and do all the duties, then convince the interviewer it would take you very little time to grasp the duties and work task.

                      Be confident and present yourself in a positive manner.

                      In communications you have to be able to B.S., but not in a way that people can't stand you. You have to come across likeable.

                      Best wishes to you on your interview.

                      Oh yeah, don't forget to important questions.

                      1. What will you bring to our company?

                      2. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

                      Trust me they are both very important questions.

                      Also, if you get that one interviewer that loves to ask you what would you do if you had enough money and you didn't have to work question. Trust me.........just be honest and don't give the answer they are looking for, but the answer the is truthfully yours.

                        AND, after the interview, send a thank you email to the person who interviewed you. Sample thank you emails can be found on google search.

                          That's good, but a snail-mail is better. It's too easy to dismiss an e-mail.

                            Okay...you need to be sure to make eye contact!!! Smile as often as possible!!! A nice firm handshake when you walk in...if you get nervous and have sweaty palms because of it...casually wipe your hand before going for the shake!!! Also be sure when you shake the hand that you smile and make eye contact!!!

                            Thank them for their time...

                            You seem to be on the right track with the research of the company and with it being in a similar field!!! That will help you a lot!!! Don't be nervous and be yourself!!!

                            Good luck...I'm sure you will do great!!!

                              Do what I used to do Buff!

                              Tell em you'll work any time they need you. Holidays, your birthday, whatever.

                              EXCEPT! You WILL NOT WORK on Bronco home game days!

                              Gotta have your priorities!

                              Actually, just make sure your relaxed when you go in. Like asking a girl for a date, a boss can tell when your desperate. That's never attractive, no matter how bad you want or need a job. Dont act like you dont care, but you know what I mean. Just be relaxed.

                              It really depends on the interviewer though. Some want to immediately give you the impression you'll be his dog. You might want to leave right there if that's the impression you get. Once his or her dog, always his dog, ya know?

                              But if you get one who treats you like a person, and an equal, make sure you treat him or her exactly the same way. Not as some guy who holds your life in his hands, but an equal you'll be working WITH, and not FOR.

                              As was said, know the company, and have something ready to offer them. "What do you bring to us?" will likely be a question. That's the one you NEED to have an answer for! "How are YOU going to make US money?"


                              But truth be told, that line about Bronco games always worked for me. A way to break the ice. Of course, I always meant it too!


                              Good luck!
