Division Career Tips
May 23, 2019

So, you’ve made it through the hard part and now it’s time to speak with the hiring manager. It’s important to prepare for this properly so that you are positioning yourself in the best light. Some of these steps may seem rudimentary but understanding them and keeping it simple will put you a step up on your competition.

Finding a quiet room with a strong signal. Using a landline is preferred but if you are using a headset, make sure that the connection is there so that it doesn’t sound as if you are on speaker or in a wind tunnel. You also want to interview in a quiet environment, so you and the hiring manager can freely communicate. Screaming children and barking dogs can cause an undesired distraction.

Interviewers can tell if a candidate was properly prepared for their interview. Follow these tips and both you and the interviewer will appreciate that you did.
