If it has M plates it is not your company car. M plates cannot be used for assigned vehicles.

The interview will begin to form an opinion of you within seconds of seeing you. Proper dress sets the tone of the interview by showing the interviewer that you making an investment in your bid for employment by appearing professional.

The next step of the interview is about conveying your skill set to the interviewer. Most people interviewing prospective candidates don't have a clue how to do a proper interview and just seem to ask a bunch of bullshit questions. Remember, you are also interviewing this potential employer to see if they have the qualifications to entice you to work for them. If the interviewer has poor interviewing skills than this is the opportunity to influence the direction of your interview. If you know somebody within the company, drop a name. Tell the interviewer that you have known Joe Blow over in parts since you lived two doors down from him as a kid (use actual contact and experience with contact). Ask a ton of questions about compensation, raises, probationary period, benefits, vacation, retirement, etc. This will indicate to the interviewer that you are interested in long term employment and you are not going to jump ship to somebody that offers you 10 cents an hour more.

Body languange is also very important to a succesful interview. Be articulate in your questions and answers. Firm handshake at the beginning and end of the interview. Keep eye contact with your interviewer and answer questions immediatly when asked. If you don't know the answer don't pause or look down at the floor but instead just state that you don't know. Be aware of subconcious actions like rubbing your eyes or nose or scratching your head. These are no nos during an interview because they distract the interviewer from the tasks at hand and instead they fixate on your subconcious habit for tick.

Lastly, go in with the attitude that you are the right man for the job. Have confidence in your skill set and convey that to the interviewer (without bragging or exagerating). At the end of the interview don't be afraid to ask when they will be making a decision on who will fill the position. If the interviewer is not sure ask them if you can call in a few days or so to check on the position.

I know I haven't included everything but I hope I have given you a head start. I've been working for 32 years and have interviewed for jobs ranging from dishwasher to research chemistry so I've had a few years and different careers to gain some experience in the interview process.

Good luck.
thanks nuggets that helps a lot, being in my early 20's i haven't had the chance to have a lot of interviews, but i got it down for the most part. you gave me some great ideas on questions though.

I glad you know how to dress. Sorry you took my post as a personal dig towards you and your girls indecision as to how a "guy" should dress for an interview. However my opinion still stands. If an INDIVIDUAL doesn't know how to dress for an interview he/she has already failed. I am certain you will land the job.........

If you wear:

khaki slacks
a button down white casual long sleeved shirt
black belt, socks, and shoes
casual watch with no other jewelry, piercings, or visible tattoos if possible
Tie and coat is optional depending on weather.(If warm wear tie only)

When trying to stick up for yourself, are you trying to convince us, or you?

No one really gives a shit what anyone else does on this board as it really does not really relate to a social standard in this hobby.

You can have a guy like yourself that probably could afford the nicest gear, but have to be pulled out of a stuck by a $500 POS.

So out in the woods... job means nothing... so who cares..

If this were a forum to see who was the most financially secure... maybe we would care.. but its not and we dont

This thread is in the pub, and has nothing to do with any off road activity. It does however cover jobs, and/or the ability to get one. Defending the fact that he does in fact take a company vehicle home despite Sol Goodes brilliant assessment otherwise. Is completely in context.

Taking a car home for the night and having it assigned is a VERY differant thing.

Based off of your earlier comments, I am going to assume you are not an 8th level.

Uhm, I wish the inbred hillbillies would stick to what they know. They know about sleeping with their relatives, and other "classy" acts.

2 piece denim jumpsuit. Don't forget to wear your Sex Panther cologne. Works 60% of the time, every time.
