Interviewing is Like Dating…Part II

By In Uncategorized On July 8, 2010

I just read an article – interviewing is similar to selling a house – okay I get it – but really think there are more parallels to dating! 

Even if the environment is casual, dress up – don’t over dress but wear clothes that reflect your desire to get a new job.  Realize it is difficult in media for men to wear suits but try to dress up as a sign of respect.

Be an active participant in the interview – don’t sit back and wait for questions, do research in advance on the company and interviewers, read blogs, linkedin profiles and be informed.

And be charming not arrogant.  Even if you don’t want the job, be excited and interested and polite.  You never know who the interviewers know and where they will end up – they could be your next supervisor at another company.
