Below are a few tips to guide you:

If you want to be taken seriously, you must dress appropriately.  Meaning you should not wear jeans, hats, hoodies, scarves, sneakers, or have visible electronic devices.  Your clothes should fit your properly— pants should cover your behind & your underwear ARE NOT visible to others.  Your hair should be neatly styled.

Avoid speaking in slang!  “Yes sir, Yes Miss, Yes ma’am, etc…”  Bring the name & phone number of at least three (3) professional references.  They should not be related to you.   Ask your teachers, a coach, a club advisor your guidance counselor for permission to use them as a reference.  Bring your own pens (not pencil) with you.

You should conduct yourself in a friendly manner.  Smile and greet others with “Good Morning” or “Good Afternoon.”

Go to bed early the night before so that you wake up early, rested, and refreshed.  You will do better when rested.

Sample interview questions are available on this page.  Select the “interview” tab and read through the questions.

The job market is tight.  You are competing with adults for employment.  For you to successfully compete with adults, you must step up your game and show potential employers that you have what it take.  Oh, one last thing.  If you have a résumé, bring extra copies.

Mark your calendar and good luck!
