How to (probably) ace an interview

Grace Hensley, Staff Reporter

We are all at the age where we are beginning to get our first jobs, quit our jobs, and get new jobs.  Here’s a list on how to successfully interview for a job.

      1. Be yourself.  You might as well be yourself from the get-go.  If you decide to wait to show your true colors                  until you actually get the job, you’re taking the risk of getting fired.

  1. Know the company.  This does not mean telling your boss that you stalked them on Facebook.  This means just knowing the essentials of the company.
  1. Ask questions. Don’t be too creepy though.  Find out as much as you can about the position and what they are expecting from a new hire.
  1. Know if the job you’re interviewing for is a good fit for you or not.  Once you’re in the interview, you can’t just get up and leave if you realize that you don’t really want the job.  I mean, you could, but it probably wouldn’t look too good.
  1. Be on time. It’s good to show your potential future boss that you are punctual.  This isn’t school. You can’t walk in 30 minutes late and expect everything to be the same.
