While practicing and answering common interview questions, do your best to incorporate the following interview tips from youth and career development professionals. With practice, the recommendations below will become more natural and automatic. In the meantime, try to be persistent and gentle on yourself.
Being on time to an interview indicates that you are dependable and respectful - qualities that employers want in their employees. Therefore, do everything in your power to show up on time. Prepare your outfit before the day of your interview, pack a snack and drink ahead of time, etc. On the day of your interview, build in extra travel time to get to your interview, so you will not be late due to traffic, getting lost, needing to use the bathroom, etc. Also, plan to show up 5-10 minutes early. If it proves to be impossible for you to arrive on time, call and let the interviewer know ahead of time - as a courtesy and to reduce the chance that being late will keep you from getting the job.
