Interview tips

You have few seconds to make a first good impression

Resumes create first impressions with hiring managers and recruiters. 

Follow these tips to be prepared.
  • Show a clear match between your experience and the position
  • Well organized: easy for the recruiter and hiring manager to see key information. 
  • Action-oriented: start each bullet with an action verb in the third person, such as responsible for…; coordinated between; collaborated with.
  • Concise: include only the most relevant information – 1 page maximum. 
  • Chronological style: begin with the current job
  • No grammar or spelling errors and no abbreviations or acronyms.  

Hiring managers are looking for examples that show your soft skills.


  • Be prepared, positive and confident.
  • Dress for success and be on time. Do not arrive too early. 
  • “Sell” yourself – but don’t oversell. 
  • Be polite. Be yourself. Maintain eye contact. 
  • Summarize your interest and qualifications at the end of the interview.
  • Ask about the next steps and when you can expect a response or follow-up.
  • Send a thank you note after the interview and reconfirm your interest.
  • Be ready for ‘behavioral-based questions’ – Have good examples to show your skills.
Behavioral questions typically start like this:
  • “Tell me about a time when you..."
  • "Describe how you have handled..."
  • "Give me an example of..."


  • Never speak negatively about former employers, boss or colleagues. 
  • Asking questions that don’t relate to the job you are interviewing for. 
  • Rushing to answer. Attempting to fill the silence. Interrupting or speaking over the interviewer. 
  • Distracting the interviewer while they are taking notes or formulating a follow-up question.
  • Don’t ask about other positions during your interview. 
  • Don’t set salary expectations unless asked directly by the interviewer.
