Interview Tuesday....Question...

Okay so i have ANOTHER interview tuesday...hopefully this goes better than the last couple ive interviewd for...the hours are fantabulous..and would keep me from having to get daycare, and id be home n bed with my SO before crazy times....so im happy about it...

...ive researched the company online (their website) so i know what theyre about and theyre motto...
....ive bought thank-you cards to send out after the interview (anyone know what im supposed to say in those)...
...i know how to dress and speak prof....
So WHAT ELSE can i do from getting the dreaded "weve hired someone else" phone call?!?!?!?
Any advice is welcomed!

  • send the thank you card immediately and write something personal from the interview in it like "i was so interested to learn..." or something like that. answer all questions with confidence and a smile, do not say um or uhh, if you have to pause go ahead and think, ahead of time write a list of questions to ask at the end including, when can i expect to know when the position has been filled, hours, shifts, benefits, how many applicants were there, etc.

  • There are also templates for the thank you letters that can give you a general idea if you google them! If you have a resume, don't forget a cover letter and put it all in a nice little see-through binder! That way your resume sticks out from the crowd!

  • Is this a work at home business or job? If its a job, of course by all means send them a Thank You for interview letter.

  • Have you checked your Linkedin network to see if you are connected to anyone at that company?
    Do you have a list of great questions to ask about the company and the position?
    Are you prepared to answer a wide range of questions about the position, your background, what you can contribute, and the dreaded "behavorial interview" questions?
