Interviewing for a new position doesn't have to be stressful. Spending time to learn
more about the company and understand what you have to offer can make
the interview run smoothly. We've summarized tips to help prepare for
your interviewing process at Wade Trim.

What are you proud of?: Are there prior work experiences or class projects
that you are particularly proud of? There should be ample opportunity
during the interview for you to emphasize these events when responding
to the questions. Thinking about them prior to the interview may even
assist you in formulating your responses during the interview process.
Project a Positive Attitude: Perhaps you woke up late, or learned
you didn't do very well on a mid-term, or maybe you were
caught in construction on the way to the interview. Take a
few moments before walking in the door and focus on
what’s in front of you. Don't subconsciously bring these
ill feelings with you into the building.
Silence can be golden: It isn't necessary to fill
every gap of silence with words. Some Interviewees have been
known to continue talking after they have already fully answered
the question at hand. Perhaps the Interviewer is finishing
writing your last comment or maybe he/she is taking a breath.
In any event, if you feel you have effectively conveyed your message,
simply end your side of the conversation for that particular question.
By doing so, you eliminate the possibility of the Interviewer losing
your original meaning, and you accentuate your ability to formulize your
ideas in a clear and concise manner.
Ask Questions: The Interviewer shouldn’t be the only
one doing the asking. Think of this time as an information
exchange. Did your initial research of Wade Trim
produce questions that you couldn't find on our web site? Did the Interviewer
say something that needed additional clarification? Asking questions shows
that you are listening and are interested in the opportunity before you.
