* Dress for success. Put away the baggy pants and novelty T-shirts. Dress neatly, and check your attire ahead of time to avoid a wardrobe malfunction. Neither torn nor tight clothing will impress the hiring manager.
* Get to your interview early. The best way to not get hired is to show up late for the job interview. Remember that first impressions count.
* Be polite and friendly to everyone you meet at the work site, not just the interviewer. These people will be your colleagues if you get the job.
* Speak up, speak clearly and look the interviewer in the eye. This is a conversation, so have your own questions ready: What are the hours? When would I start? What’s the training like? What do you like best about working here?
* Bring a written list of names and contact information for personal references when you complete your job application.
* Bring an updated copy of your resume. (College Sample Resumes)
When you do land a job this holiday season, be sure to make a good impression. You may want to return to the same company next year.
