How to Show Up for a Job Interview

Do you know how to show up for an interview? | Champion Personnel

The first rule of showing up to any interview is to be early, if you are on time or late, you will not get the job. 

The second rule is to dress appropriately. Do not wear your weekend clothes, do not wear a hat. You need to look neutral and neat. Take a shower, get a haircut, shave your beard, do your hair, do your nails.

The third rule is to research the company. You will want to know what they do and have some questions prepared about the company.

A few more rules of thumb:

  • No gum
  • Leave your kids at home
  • Speak respectfully

How to Show Up for an Hourly Job Interview

It is often acceptable to wear blue jeans without holes with a nice shirt tucked in. 

How to Show Up for a Salary Job Interview

Business to business casual is traditionally the attire for a salary job. For a guy, you'll want to wear a coat and tie. For a lady, you'll want a pantsuit or professional dress.
