Feeling nervous about that interview date nearing closer and closer? Experiencing painful flashbacks to your last interview experience, which needless to say did not end with paid employment? Fear no more. Here at Lynx Inc., we know exactly how to help you ace the interview…every time.
A Week Before the Interview
Knowledge is power. With multiple days on your hands before the big day, help yourself succeed by becoming knowledgeable about the company. The biggest key to walking in confident is knowing where you are. Be aware of the client base, the business history, and maybe even the mission statement. Utilize social media and the internet to get a feel for not only the type of industry you are looking at, but the culture of this company. Would you be a good fit? Do you see yourself growing in this environment? Do you see yourself bringing something new and different to the table? Familiarize yourself with the company culture, and consider how your presence can elevate the company, and be ready to sell that.
Day of The Interview
As we all know, picking an appropriate outfit is an imperative part of acing the interview. Here at Lynx Inc., we encourage you to sit back and relax. Don’t let the hype get to your head, you know what is office appropriate. Aside from a tuxedo or a ball gown, it is nearly impossible to over-dress. Take the opportunity to show your personal sense of style, while also maintaining professionalism. Have fun with it
Day After The Interview
If we know one thing to be true, it is the power of the follow-up. We tend to be apprehensive when it comes to follow-ups. We are afraid to “bug” them, to turn them off from us, or to annoy them beyond the point of consideration. Never be afraid of being “pushy” or “aggressive.” Interviewers and company heads tend to appreciate the follow-up email, as it shows a true interest on the behalf of the interviewer. Showing a drive and passion for this specific job opportunity is a tactic that can not be understated, and if often ignored by applicants. Follow up, and follow up again. Go in person if you have to, don’t be forgotten, and do not be ignored.

You did it, you aced the interview, and got the dream job. Give yourself a pat on the back. Don’t rest for too long, you’ve got a career to build. Here at Lynx Inc., we know that your future will be even brighter than this moment of success.
