DON’T TRASH TALK (past jobs, partners, brands)
No one wants to hire negativity.
DON’T FOCUS ON THE MONEY
Get the job. Crush it. Everything will take care of itself.
It’s a small world. Everyone talks.
Enjoy a daily slice of humble pie.
DON’T BE CYNICAL
Cynicism is small and closed. Be big and open minded.
DON’T NOT ASK QUESTIONS
An interview is a two way conversation. Take advantage of it.
All that being said…
DO HAVE STRONG OPINIONS
DO STAY PASSIONATE
DO BE INFORMED
After all, you’re interviewing for a specific job at a specific place with a specific person, at a company which has a very specific website which is definitely connected to the world wide web. So always do your homework and know your stuff.
