Good morning. It’s Wednesday February 14, 2018 and this is your first early morning Jobs briefing!

Cyn 3:
3 things NOT to do during an interview comes to us from Jennifer Fasig, VP Human Resources at The First Tee
Don’t treat company representatives differently: It shocks me when a candidate is rude to our receptionist. Just last week, a candidate interviewed for a management level position whose voice tone and hand shake were noticeably different when interviewing with a male verse a female colleague. When you are interviewing with a company, remember that any representative may be asked their opinion of you. It is important to treat everyone with respect and professionalism.
Don’t get too comfortable: I have candidates participate in several interviews. One reason is that often, a candidate can forget their professionalism. Examples include propping legs up during the interview, sharing too much personal information and believe it or not … eating candy during the interview. Remember, you are “on” during each interview stage.
Don’t be negative: It is important for candidates to be candid about their experiences, and I’ll often ask open-ended questions that one might go down the wrong path. A favorite interview question- what do you find most frustrating about your work place. Once I had an accounting candidate tell me she hated small talk in the morning, a job is not the time to be social. My question is a bit of a trick since I don’t want to hear someone complain about their previous bosses, co-workers or the company. This is a good opportunity to share how you may have grown in the workplace, dealt with a difficult challenge or adapted to change.     
And one thing to always remember, thank you notes! No need to snail mail your handwritten thank you, a quick email thanking the interview team works just as nicely. It has become a lost art in the job-hunting process and when someone does it well, it always stands out.
