Chris’ 5 tips–
03:52 Relax. If you are being interviewed, you are good enough. Otherwise, the employer wouldn’t have called you.
04:09 Be a good listener. Gauge interest and go off the script and only talk about things that the employer is interested in. Don’t bore the interviewer.
05:08 Don’t be afraid to say “I don’t know”. Be thoughtful in your responses and don’t make up stuff. It’ll make you look bad. Punt. Compliment the interviewer and say, “That was a great question. I don’t have an answer to that, but let me get back to you with a more considered response.”
05:27 Be memorable by being yourself. Don’t try to fit in cause you’ll just fit in and no one will remember you.
07:25 Follow up after the interview by writing a hand written note. This shows your professionalism and demonstrates that you care.
