Going to a job interview again? How many is this now? A hundred? Two hundred? Pah! I lost count at 20. It’s the same old thing, different day. We’ve all been there haven’t we? I have. I went to many job interviews over the course of 7 months in 2017 and I assure you, it’s heart breaking when you fail them all. And using this experience, Sarge here is gonna help you out.

So holster up and secure that weapon cause it’s time to lock n’ load!

#1. Time

Arrive on time. This means that, when you have an appointment at 8 a.m., you arrive on or before 8 a.m. DO NOT leave the house at 8 a. m. because that shows you’re dedicated or serious about getting the job – even if you failed the interviews. If you arrive late or leave at the time you have an appointment, I assure you, I’ll train you so hard your teeth will start talking to you in your sleep!

#2. Confidence

This can make you look like you’re on top of everything they’re about to throw at you. This will leave a mark when you don’t enter a place too eagerly. If you appear to look slouchy and unenthusiastic, chances are, you’re marked as someone who isn’t gonna make it past the first interview. Entering an interview with confidence is a sign that you’re interested.

#3. Dress

I’m not saying you should go to the interview naked. Remember in boot camp when I’d give the wrath of God to you even if your uniform had a tiny speck? The same thing can be said of the clothes you wear to the interview. Dress appropriately but don’t overdo it. Getting your clothes wrong during an interview is like wearing full combat gear while meeting the President. Just be adequate and modest.
