So fire the catapult and get ready to storm the castle cause it’s time to lock n’ load!

1. Prepare

The first thing you gotta do is to prepare. You don’t go into combat without your gun, knuckleheads and the same thing applies when you go to an interview! You need to get your mind right and get yourself some knowledge about the company and questions that the enemy interviewer will throw at you! Hell, they might even throw everything but the kitchen sink at ya so stand to!

2. Dress

This is one other important factor you gotta consider. Back in the old days, it was pretty common to see colorful uniforms like the British Red Coats and the American Continentals and the Prussian Black Coats. In the modern battlefield, you gotta wear something with camouflage like M81 Woodland or MARPAT, CADPAT and MultiCam. The same thing applies when you get into a job interview, maggots! Dress appropriately as in Sunday’s Best or I guarantee you, sunshine, you’ll be eating my t-shirt for breakfast at the mess hall! Ya got that?

3. Focus

The only thing that’s missing after all this is your focus, cupcakes! When we were in Scout Sniper training and didn’t focus, shooting a target 50 yards away meant you missed your target and had to repeat Scout Sniper School! The same thing happens when you lose focus at the job interview; lose focus and they’ll call you back. Sound familiar? Well, it better be familiar cause you’ll be seeing my familiar face back at barracks when you lose focus! Do you maggots understand that?! Hoorah!
