What to Do (and Not to Do) During Your Job Interview if You're a Gulfport or Biloxi Job Seeker


So you've finally got that interview lined up at your dream job. It seems like it's a shoe-in at this point, right? Why would they want to interview you if they didn't want to hire you? Well, don't get too excited yet, there’s quite a bit you need to keep in mind when you are interviewing Gulfport jobs. Here are some things you should do, and some things you definitely should not do, that will help you solidify your position.

1. Do practice before interviewing. When you try to improve your golf swing, or learn another language, you practice. Why not do so with a job interview? Working on your delivery, anticipating questions, and perfecting your tone can only help. Get some friends to do a mock interview with you. The stress of the job interview is something everyone can relate to, and they’ll be eager to help.

2. Don't interrupt your interviewer. Interviewers can do a lot of talking, and what they have to say (particularly regarding the company) can be important and informative. You would do well to listen more than you speak, and you don’t want to come across as rude or desperate.

3. Do ask questions. The question and answer process is a two way street in the job interview. So feel free to ask away; it shows engagement.

4. Don’t lie. This seems obvious, but it's far better to answer with a direct "I don't know," rather than invent something that could later be disproved.
