Job Interview Tips (Part 2) 4 More PRACTICAL Ideas To Getting Hired…

Hopefully the 4 tips from yesterday had some value to you.

Here are the last four ideas. Good Luck.

5th Be helpful.

I know one employer who would deliberately drop a pen or paper on the floor during an interview.


He was looking for the person he was interviewing to reach down and try to help him by picking it up.
If you just sit there in your chair and watch him bend down and get the pen or paper himself  you just lost about 10 yards in the job interview process.


It goes back to all the other tips. Job interviewers wants someone who is gonna make their job easier.

Not harder.

Picking up the pen or paper shows you are the type of person who’s willing to help him or her.

6th Smiling is really important in a job interview.

Not to the point that you are Chuckles the Clown, but people generally like someone with a cherry smiling personality.

A smile goes a long way in making the interviewer feel comfortable with you.

The job interviewer is just as nervous as you are about asking you the right questions. So smile.

7th If you don’t know the answer to a question you are asked, just say so.

I have had people interview in our office and lose the job because it was obvious to me they were BS ing me.

Pittsburgh wrongful death, medical malpractice and car accident attorney Bernie Tully would much rather have you just tell me the truth than BS.

An employer wants someone who’s going to tell them the way it is good or bad.

8th Avoid at all costs any talk of religion or politics. It might be easy to say that you love or hate Donald Trump, but it’s likely going to hurt you in the interview.

If you say that Donald Trump is an ass, and the employer is a Trump supporter you got yourself some problems.
If you say you love the Donald, and you learn that the employer’s daughter is a huge Hilary fan you again have some explaining to do.

The same applies for religion. Just don’t get into it.

And 2 extra tips..

9th Finally thanks the person who’s interviewing you profusely. Look him or her in the eye and tell them you really really want this job.

10th Follow up with a hand written personal thank you card to the employer or interviewer.
Especially if the interviewer is old like me. That’s what our generation did.

The interviewer will absolutely love it. Please trust me on this one.

An email is pretty impersonal.

Even if you do not get the job, the interviewer may be in a position to help you with another perspective employer at some point. That personal thank you card is worth its weight in gold.

Well I guess that’s it. I wish you the best in your job hunt in the legal field.

Thanks for reading.
