    Interview Tips
    1. Use the company website, search engines and social and business networking sites to research the company, the position, and the people you will be meeting.
    2. Prepare at least three questions that are relevant and important to the company and the person you are interviewing.
    3. Review your work history and experience to highlight accomplishments that will be relevant to this position.
    4. Be on time but not more than 15 minute early and dress conservatively.
    5. Be upbeat and positive, confident but not cocky. Always maintain eye contact with your interviewer.
    6. Always begin each answer with a positive statement of what you know. Avoid starting with negative statements such as “I haven’t used that software.” Instead turn a negative into a positive statement of what you know. “I have used PeopleSoft. I have installed PeopleSoft on time and under budget. Although I have not used your software I know I will learn it as quickly as I learned PeopleSoft.”
    7. Don’t ask questions about Salary, Benefits or Working Conditions on your first interview.
    8. Send a thank you note. It is easy to send an email, but a hand written note shows you took extra time and reinforces your interest in the job. Have someone review the note before sending,
