- Always be positive.
- Make your interviewer laugh. They are as nervous as you most of the time.
- Eye contact.
- Be enthusiastic.
- Don't be nervous.
- Never answer with what you think they want to hear. Always be honest.
- Never pick up your cell phone.
- Using a graphic design that catches the eye.
- Add Testimonials from customers.
- Understand the job requirements, and then in the first two sentences tell your prospective employer what you can do for them. Following that, give details that support that thought.
- Always provide a subject line. As a company that has multiple positions open at once, a resume via email with no subject line makes it hard for us to guess what you are applying for.
