You finally get the interview call you have been waiting for. This is your one chance to put your best foot forward and make sure everything is right for your interview. You have one chance and you must make every effort to be at your best. Jorg Stegman of the Kennedy  Search and Outplacement Team has highlighted 7 tips for an in person interview that may make the difference in whether or not you get the job offer.

Perhaps the most important advice is to be natural, pleasant and honest. Hiring Managers and recruiters conduct hundreds of interviews and are trained to read body language. see when people are comfortable. When you project your comfort level and honesty, that speaks volumes to a professional.


Do your research on the company you are interviewing with by going to their website, or checking with current employees etc. The more you know about the firm and the company culture,l the more you will be able to address your answers to their company business.
