Hi mouse wait family , a (sadly) non Disneyland post, but I thought that you guys might have some job interview tips? I have an interview really soon. Much appreciated! :)

Smiling, showing confidence and enthusiasm and being able to easily get into conversation are always good things just relax and good luck! =] - amerado  9.5 #11384 9:59AM

Dress and groom neat, clean and approporate for the position you are applying for. Have your act together and fill in applications/forms neatly and completly. If you know or think they want anything (DL, SS card, references, resume, etc) take it with you. Remember that you are 'on stage' as soon as you arrive, be polite to everyone (you never know if the security guard or receptionist is the bosses relative). Be polite, smile, have a great attitude. Know about the company and the position so you can tell the interviewer how you will be a great employee and an asset to the company. - mike714  338.1 #710 10:01AM
Prepare ahead. Research the company. Go on-line and read a lot of interview questions and answers. Be prepared to give your strengths and weaknesses (they always ask those). Emphasize that you are a team player. Dress very nicely..when I was conducting interviews, it always amazed me how many people came in poorly dressed. Do not bring up salary. They will bring it up only when they are prepared to offer the job to you. Good luck! - Bo22  394.2 #570 10:05AM

I always used to tell my students to look at the person addressing you, shake the person's hand and thank them for giving you the opportunity to interview. Good luck! - Diznimom  225.2 #1666 10:13AM
Thanks!! :))) ( If I got this job I could possibly become an ap holder for Disneyland :D) - Suikas  143.7 #2820 10:19AM
Mee too! Good luck! =)) - MissMamyMouse  178.2 #2275 10:24AM
And don't forget that thank you letter immediately after the interview. Go home, sit down, and mail it the same day. Keeps you fresh in their mind and you will have the edge on the majority who don't send that letter. - Bo22  394.2 #570 10:49AM
Eye contact, confidence, & be yourself. Smile, be enthusiastic. - Splashmountgirl  337.1 #717 10:51AM
Ask questions about the company and send a hand written, not typed. letter or thank you card after the interview. - sr_citizen_space_ranger  70.0 #4162 10:53AM
If you want the job, tell the interviewer before you leave. That and a prompt thank you note always brought a resume to the top of my pile. And no negativity about prior jobs/bosses. Being diplomatic is a great asset at interviews and on the job. - PrincessDuckie  905.1 #202 11:23AM
Wear a suit if you have one. No skirts. Trust me. And Google the company before the interview. - GoldenEilonwy  167.3 #2447 12:18PM
Excuse me, GoldenEilonwy.. No skirts? You usually look better in a skirt and more professional (to some people anyways) and sometimes make you look younger. Wearing a skirt will make you stand out - splashie  25.2 #6510 12:29PM
Maybe they meant skirt steak. I could possibly be wrong. - Butterlina  1570.6 #105 12:32PM
If you're going to wear a skirt make sure it is not shorter than knee length. Dress professionally. Have some questions ready to ask. Don't take anyone with you to the interview or leave them in the car. Bring a resume if you have one. - KissDclown  1089.1 #167 12:32PM
Just got out of the interview and it went pretty well I think :) they'll let us know soon so hopefully it works out! Thanks all for your advice it worked well :) - Suikas  143.7 #2820 12:45PM
