  • Answer the questions you’re asked as best you can, and ask whether you answered sufficiently if you’re unsure
  • Pause if you need time to think
  • Send a thank-you note or email as soon as possible that addresses specific and relevant issues you discussed during the interview
  • DON’T assume the hiring team remembers your resume
  • DON’T talk incessantly
  • DON’T discuss salary and benefits if you can avoid it (till you get the job offer)
  • DON’T beg for the job
  • DON’T wear strong scents
  • DON’T dress or behave too casually
