2 DRESS FOR SUCCESS! Watch your body language-have a positive attitude! Mastering the Interview (cont.) 2. PUNCTUALITY- Be on time! You want to arrive at least 15 to 30 minutes early; you may need to complete an application or other required paperwork. Being late is a bad first impression,. 3.

Men should not wear all black, flashy suits, have painted nails, t-shirts, jeans, etc. Please do not over-do the cologne or perfume, some people may have allergies or cannot tolerate strong overwhelming odors. Ladies should wear a nice pantsuit or busi ness suit ( dark blue/black or solid colors) Men should wear a (preferably white) shirt with a conservative tie and jacket. 4. POSITIVE ATTITUDE AND ANSWERS- Shake hands and introduce yourself (smile and show confidence).

Don t use slang or profane language, ask personal questions, give out personal information such as your age, religion, sexual preferences. Never discuss religion or political views. Never bring up personal conflict you may have had with previous co-workers or bosses. Keep your answers positive and professional. Try to keep answers to questions succinct and knowledgeable about the job duties. Don t ramble on and on. 5. PROFESSIONAL BEHAVIOR Be respectful and honest with your answers.

Take notes and write down the names of the person (s) who interviews you. Ask for a business card. If you don t understand a question, ask the interviewer to repeat the question. 6. PLACE VALUE AND CREDIBILITY IN YOUR SKILLS-If you know about certain technologies, use language and terms that apply to that technology.

3 2015 Spring Career Fair A Success! On April 2nd Career Services hosted a Spring Job Fair with more than 25 Companies participating. Our Sponsors this year were The Cracker Barrel and Primerica.

All of the employers said they would like to come to Cedar Valley College again! We had a drawing for a gift basket with more than $75.00 worth of goodies. A subway gift card, an i- tunes gift card, sports bottles, loads of snacks and candies. Over 25 Employers attended the 2015 Spring Job Fair!
