Interviewing Soft Skills: The very basics of interviewing

Many experts talk about how to answer interview questions and, a few, how to dress or write a thank you note.  But, if you haven't interviewed for a while (or ever), you may want to make sure you have the very basics of interviewing - Interview Soft Skills.


Here is a series of articles I wrote for examiner.com.  Corresponding videos are available on Youtube.  Practice - really over-preparing (see Interview Tip #1),  Prepare your notes (Tip #2), Have appropriate, comfortable clothes to wear (see Interview Tip #3), Interview Tip #4 shared the importance of visiting the location the day before, and Tip #5, was to relax. They all addressed preparation and tips for before the interview.  Tip # 6 (Breathe), Tip #7 Strike a pose Tip #8 Smile Tip #9 -  Ask Questions and Interview Tip #10 (Watch your body language) deal with that nerve racking During-The-Interview period.


I hope you are preparing for an upcoming interview and find this information helpful.  If you need help, just let me know!  Email me. Good Luck!
