13 Unexpected Tips For A Successful Job Interview

Sweaty hands never get the job.

Posted on

1. Be organized when you start the job hunt.

When you start looking for a job, organize your interview clothes into one spot of your closet, or print off copies of your resume. You'll have fewer things to worry about when you finally land an interview, which cuts down a considerable amount of stress.


2. Say no to ice water.


While it is polite to accept water before the interview, make sure to ask for it WITHOUT ice. That way, the glass won't slip out of your hand from the condensation. And if your hands are jittery, there won't be any clanking ice to reveal your butterflies.

4. On a related note, put panty liners in your heels.

If it's warm out and your feet keep sliding or sticking to your heels, neatly slip in a panty liner — they won't be visible and they absorb sweat. Think of them as some kind of insole?


12. Eat more protein than carbs.

During breakfast, try to incorporate food that's rich in protein like eggs or peanut butter. Your mind is more likely to stay alert and thinking, compared to the sleepy aftermath of a carb overload.



13. Don't sweat the small stuff.

Your future employer probably knows that you can turn on a computer, but if you want to give a great first impression, it might be better to focus on the bigger picture, rather than blabbing about every. single. skill. you've ever acquired. This is your chance to have a great conversation!
