How to prepare for a job interview

Put your best foot forward with these expert tips on how to prepare for a job interview.

Check these things off your pre-interview to-do list, then all you’ll need to score the job of your dreams is a confident smile.

1. Update your resume.

Now is the time to dust off your resume and make sure it looks perfect. Polish your existing job descriptions and add your current position. Have multiple hard copies in hand to share with everyone you interview with. Bonus points if you keep them in a sturdy, professional resume folder. Bring a notepad and pen with you for your interview, too. Taking notes shows your interest and seriousness about the job you’re interviewing for. (But make sure to still engage in the conversation, keep your head up, and make eye contact whenever possible.)

2. Try on your interview outfit ahead of time.

We’ve all been there: Getting ready for a date night or event, and the outfit we planned on wearing seemed perfect until 30 minutes beforehand and where did all these wrinkles and stains come from?!

Do yourself a favor and prep your outfit at least a few days ahead of time. Give it a good steam. Try it on with your shoes and look in a full-length mirror. Avoid anything too tight or revealing. You want your interviewer to focus on your amazing qualifications and sparkling smile – not be distracted by any potential wardrobe malfunctions.

3. Research the company.

Study the company as much as you can ahead of time. Familiarize yourself with their website, look at LinkedIn profiles, and read press clips (pro tip: use the Google News search feature to search the company name for anything new and noteworthy). What’s the company culture? Who works there? What qualities will help you succeed there? Show your knowledge and passion for the company during your interview.

4. Whiten your teeth 1 week before the interview.

Get your teeth to their whitest white with our bright on™ premium teeth whitening. Apply the whitening gel pen to your teeth and then use our LED accelerator light to enhance the whitening. Whiten for 1 week at a time with our 4-pack of bright on whitening pens. The results will last up to 90 days. Nothing says confidence like a big, bright grin. Give us a call at 1-800-848-7566 to order your bright on today.

5. Prep answers to potential interview questions ahead of time.

Be prepared to talk about yourself and explain not only why you want the job, but also why you want to work at the company. Why should they hire you? Where do you see yourself in 5 or 10 years? Be able to speak to your strengths and weaknesses, too. These 31 common interview questions will help you prepare for – and ace – the interview. Don’t be shy – go ahead and brag on yourself to show them how great you are!

6. Smile.

Nonverbal cues and body language are as important as what you say. Notice your interviewer’s demeanor and tone of voice – mirror that. Sit up straight, and don’t forget to smile! Studies show the simple act of smiling can instantly boost your mood. Plus, people who smile tend to be (or at least appear to be) more confident.
