Top 10 interview dos and don'ts

Chances are, you or someone you care about has struggled to find work lately. There’s no question that it’s a tough market. That’s why you need to give yourself every advantage — what can you do (and what should you avoid) when you go in for an interview? Strive’s lead job-trainer Rob Smith and his staff share insights on how you — just like the down-and-out unemployed citizens featured in the Sundance Channel series GET TO WORK — can make the right impression and land a job.

10. DO have a great big smile on your face.

You’re showing enthusiasm and friendliness, and your interviewer’s initial reaction will be to smile right back. It also shows that you’re not a threat.

“Smile. I don’t care if you have one tooth in there, shine it up and show it.” –Rob Smith
