|5 Interview Tips
We sat down with a professional recruiter who wanted to share some tips with you:
- If you are sick do not try to "tough" the interview out. Do the interviewer and yourself a favor by rescheduling the interview with at least 24 hours' notice.
- Do you best to dress one step more professional than what the rest of the workplace is wearing. Even more important is ensuring that everything you are wearing is clean and pressed. Hair and nails count too (for men and woman).
- The more conversational the tone (while keeping the interview on topic) you can achieve with the interviewer the better. If they don't have to look at their notes for the next question you are doing well.
- Be able to back up anything you say with examples. If you say your organized, elaborate on how you keep track of your family schedule or what your closet looks like.
- Never answer a question in one word. Paint a picture with your works as you describe past experiences, projects, and successes.
Learn where to find breakfast and lunch for your kids this summer The Summer BreakSpot is a U.S. Department of Agriculture program that offers free nutritious meals to kids and teens ages 18 and under all summer long. Meals include breakfast, lunch or snacks in a supervised location.
At almost all sites, there is no application necessary, and any child 18 or younger can simply come during meal times to receive a meal. However, Summer BreakSpot suggests calling the site to let representatives know that your child may be coming during meal time. Some sites ask that an adult or responsible teen accompany children during the meal time, because they don't have staff to handle extra children that may not be a part of their regular activity program.
