ASK4CARE SUPPORT SERVICES INC. “Interview tips from the Experts that hire you ;)”

  • Be on time! this cannot be stressed enough; map the destination before the actual interview and give yourself plenty of time keeping in mind road and weather conditions.
  • Dress to impress! Don’t show up in trainers or spaghetti straps – this is a professional interview so we do expect you to dress professionally – business casual is the need of the day and a bare minimum.
  • Follow instruction Pay attention to what the interviewer is saying, listen carefully when you are addressed and if in doubt always ask again – everything you say and do in the interview count as indicators of your competence and how you would perform at a client location on your own.
  • Turn off that cell phone! like the heading says – just turn off your cell phone or keep it on vibrate but don’t attend to it during the interview.. its not professional and can wait.
  • Have your references ready you will be asked to provide 2 professional references – please have them ready when you come to the interview.
  • Resume and related documents bring along all your certificates, degrees and diplomas relevant to the position you have applied for. Also remember to bring photo identification.
  • Hand-writing for all those applicants that haven’t written in the past decade or so – please practice as you will have a written assignment as a part of the application process.
  • Eye contact maintain eye-contact when being spoken to, it shows you are attentive and interested.
  • Posture Always maintain good posture – whether you’re at an interview or not. Sit upright and act interested at all times.
  • Speak less, Listen more Allow the interviewer to complete sentences, don’t cut in – don’t speak endlessly, maintain professionalism at all times.
