Interviewing Tips: How To Be Taken Seriously On A Job Interview

You should take every single informational interview and job interview seriously, says Steve Rosenblum, a law grad who went into planned giving. Even if you’re not sure you’d ever take the job, you want the person across the table to have a good impression of you.

In this career advice video, Steve shares some interviewing tips on how to make sure interviewers appreciate your professionalism.

Bonus Tip: The bedroom isn’t the ideal place if you have a Skype interview…but it’s better than having kids interrupt you, which is why Steve is in his bedroom. If you have to use your bedroom, at least make your bed as nicely as he does!
