Here’s a list of some helpful tips to consider when interviewing for college
•Be sure to be punctual. If need be, arrive at the college a little before the time specified for the interview.
•Call and cancel or reschedule the interview if necessary. Be sure that you have a good reason for doing so and to convey this reason when you request a change in the time and date of your interview.
•Dress appropriately for the interview. Be formal for a formal interview and natural or informal for any other interview. Your attire is something that speaks volumes about you and will set the first impression in many cases.
•Carry all of your certificates, important letters and other vital documents with you. This will make it easier for you to show your abilities to the interviewer.
•Do not be nervous. If you are, do not let the interviewer know that you are nervous! Remain calm; you needn’t be scared. By staying collected, you can focus on what you do and say during the interview. In any case, a college interview is not the be all and end all of life.
•This is one opportunity to showcase your abilities and personality. Make sure that you speak well with regard to your interests and everything else about yourself. Also, prepare good answers for all possible questions.
•Be prepared to ask some questions about the institution or about a course you are interested in. This will show that you are interested in the particular college.
•Make sure to thank the interviewer before you depart. A firm handshake will go a long way.
