Preparing for a Successful Job Interview.
Nienkamp, Roger L.
Advice for students preparing for job interviews is provided in this guide. First, preliminary steps are reviewed, including ascertaining the type of job wanted, securing an appointment for an interview, researching the firm, dressing appropriately, writing a resume, being prepared to fill out job applications and to give reasons for leaving previous jobs, and obtaining references. Next, hints are offered on behavior during the job interview, termination of the interview, and follow-up procedures. The next sections present some of the questions most frequently asked during job interviews, give advice on what to do and what not to do during interviews, and identify some of the main reasons applicants are not hired for jobs. Then, a summary of the job interviewing tips is provided. Finally, the guide lists reasons that employees may lose their jobs. Illustrations and sample application forms and follow-up letters are included in the guide. (HB)
