Make sure to ask questions about the job and the work environment, stress your goals and fit, and dont wear the same suit.

usually second interviews mean good news! Good luck!!!

In a job interview, you should act like a good dinner guest. Let your host, the interviewer, call the shots and follow their lead. Act humbled and pleased to be there in the first place, their time is valuable and they are choosing to spend it with you.

Also, don’t forget that you aren’t showing them why the job is good for you, you are proving why you are a good fit for the job. So try to make a connection between the required job skills and how you’ve proven to possess those qualities. If the job requires flexibility and creativity, explain how you’ve solved a problem using creativity in the past and how you plan on doing the same thing in your new position.

It’s a good idea to have some quesitons prepared, but feel out your interviewer first. If they’re an outgoing, warm and jovial personality you can ask personal questions like “What do you like about working here?”, etc. If they’re more by the book, you should stick to business questions like “What will the ideal candidate do to help the department reach its goals?” Don’t ask condescending questions like how has the company performed in the last quarter or anything, that info is most likely public and lit’s irrelevant to the interview.

No matter how comfortable you feel, avoid personal topics of conversation. It’s illegal, but some employers try to figure out who has small children at home so they can avoid hiring that person. It’s best to just be vague and give very general responses if you’re asked personal questions – nothing that would give them any reason to be concerned about your personal goals or home life.

@armychica06: 6 months!? That’s crazy! I know where I work they’ve passed up people for a position so they could offer them a different, better one. Hopefully this one works out for you! One of my coworkers noticed I wore the same suit but no one else could confirm lol I had lost a lot of weight, bought one and didn’t feel like buying another one.

@armychica06: I’ve heard before that people don’t wear their e-rings to interviews — I’m going to make sure to keep this in mind if I end up having to do interviews!
