Are you ready for a new job or career?   Would you like some tips to help you stand out?  Check out these easy career tips to help you start working today! 

  1. Be On-Time to your interview
  2. Don’t chew GUM!!!
  3. Dress appropriately – yes that means no flip flops, make sure that no bra straps showing, and yes your club clothes are out.   A good rule of thumb is to always dress professionally no matter what position you are applying for.
  4. Turn your cell phone off during the interview.
  5. BRING A PEN to fill out the application – it is a bad sign to the employer when you ask for a pen – it shows that you are not prepared.
  6. Bring an up to date resume – yes, even if you are applying for an entry level position.   This will make you stand out and let the employer know you are serious about the opportunity.
  7. Make great eye contact during your interview and ASK QUESTIONS about the position!
  8. FOLLOW UP! If you want the job, make sure you follow up in a few days.   Even if the employer wants you, some will wait to see if YOU follow up to see how much you want to be there.
  9. If you really want a job at a certain company but none is available, ask if there are volunteer internship position available. Volunteer – what????   Yep, get your foot in the door and make yourself so valuable that they will find a paid position for you!
