The Lakeside Events team knows how vital it is for you to put your best foot forward during an interview, and we’d like to offer these tips for making the best impression possible:
- Go for Image Over Style: We appreciate diversity at Lakeside Events, and we enjoy expressing our uniqueness – even in the way we dress. We don’t let our need for self-expression override our professional image though. That’s why we recommend dressing conservatively in an interview situation, perhaps with a splash of flair here and there for a personal touch.
- Seek Common Ground: You will be thought of in a positive light if the interviewer feels the two of you have a lot in common. Avoid hot topics, but do talk about favorite foods, sports, the latest book you’ve read, or any hobbies you enjoy.
- Listen to Their Body Language: Experts say that most communication occurs nonverbally. While some interviewers have a great poker face, you can often see how the meeting is going by their posture, or how often they nod their heads. Watch for these clues, and adjust to them as needed.
- Expect the Unexpected: It may not happen, but be prepared for the occasional curveball question or interruption. Your flexibility will be regarded as an asset.
