Small Biz Tip: Employment : What to Say at an Interview

Tips from Thursday, March 26, 2009

The Small Business tips today will cover what to say on a job interview.

  1. During a job interview do NOT share how desperately you need the job, no matter how desperate.
  2. Research the company ahead of time. Come prepared with a list of at least 5 questions.
  3. Don't use big industry jargon. Speak simply and coherently and your intelligence should speak for itself.
  4. Never interrupt an interviewer when they’re speaking or formulating a question. Appear calm, confident and patient.

Daily Overview: Desperation doesn’t translate to dedication. Show knowledge without big words and don’t interrupt.
