In this week's video, we're gonna go
over four tips for your summer job interview.
That's coming up!
Hey guys, I'm Kim with Snagajob
your number one source for hourly jobs
and welcome to our weekly advice show.
So between trips to the beach,
amusement parks, and studying for your finals
you've been applying for jobs.
And that's awesome. And it looks like
all your hard work is paying off
because you have a big job interview coming up.
So we're gonna go over with you a few tips
on how you can stand out and get hired.
First, be flexible.
With students being out of school for the summer
and a lot of people being on vacations,
employers are expecting to see a rush of
business during the summer.
Employers want to know that their employees
will be flexible and ready to work when they
need them to. We know that missing out
on those weekends probably wasn't your plan
for the summer, but I bet your friends would understand.
Second, show off your personality.
Employers tell us that a positive attitude
is even more important than previous experience.
So really show them your eagerness
to join the team. You want to really be sure
that they don't think you're gonna
upset their customers.
Employers want to get a sense
of your personality and your work ethic
to see how you'll actually interact with the customers.
So show them how positive you are
and that you can be a little fun too.
Third, dress professionally.
We know it's really hot out there
but warm weather is no excuse to
dress inappropriately for your job interview.
So steer clear from sandals, short shorts,
tank tops, things like that.
There are ways to keep cool and still
look the part.
Wear light colors, pull your hair up,
or throw on a blazer as soon as you get out of the car.
Just remember. Keep it classy.
You should review common job interview
questions and set up a mock interview
so you're fully prepared for the big day.
Also, keep in mind that employers might
ask you summer specific questions,
like when are you returning to school
or do you have any vacations planned.
It's ok to be honest.
They just want to know what to expect.
With these tips under your belt,
go in there and show them why they should hire you.
