Interview Tip #8- Send thank-you notes. Write a thank-you note after every interview. Type each note on paper or send them by email, depending on the interviewers’ preferences. Customize your notes by referring specifically to what you and the interviewer discussed; for example, “I was particularly excited about [or interested by, or glad to hear] what you said about [fill in the blank]. Handwritten notes might be better if you’re thanking a personal contact for helping you in your job search. Whatever method you choose, notes should be sent within 48 hours of the interview.
To write a good thank-you note, you’ll need to take time after each interview to jot down a few things about what the interviewer said. Also, write down what you could have done better in the interview, and make adjustments before you head off for your next interview.


Remember to all seniors to go to the library to write your thank-you letter after your Mock Interview!

Teachers and students - The high school library will be closed on Friday for the mock interviews.


Tip #7 - Bring a copy of your resume with you when you go to every interview. If the interviewer has misplaced his or her copy, you’ll save a lot of time (and embarrassment on the interviewer’s part) if you can just pull your extra copy out and hand it over. Remember - you should have stopped in the guidance office to print your resume copies off on good paper before Mock Interviews tomorrow. If you have not done this yet, please stop in the guidance to complete this task.

Interview Tip #6 - Speak the right body language. Dress appropriately, make eye contact, have good posture, speak clearly, and don’t wear strong perfume or cologne! Sometimes interview locations are small rooms that may lack good air circulation. You want the interviewer paying attention to your job qualifications--not passing out because you’ve come in wearing Chanel No. 5 and the candidate before you was doused with Old Spice, and the two have mixed to form a poisonous gas that results in not getting an offer!

Interview Tip #5 Practice, practice, practice. It’s one thing to come prepared with a mental answer to a question like, “Why should we hire you?” It’s another challenge entirely to say it out loud in a confident and convincing way. The first time you try it, you’ll sound garbled and confused, no matter how clear your thoughts are in your mind! Do it another 10 times, and you’ll sound a lot smoother and more articulate.


Mrs. Losh will be in the senior English classrooms today during 1st and 8th periods. Any CCP students that do not have Mrs. King should plan to come in during one of these periods today.
