Interviewing and Best Practices

In order to prepare for your interview, we recommend the following: do your research on our company and the position; have an updated/current resume and work history ready to go; make sure all of your contact information is updated and accurate; have questions to ask us prepared ahead of time; arrive early/on-time; avoid cancelling and/or rescheduling; dress professionally; have a quiet environment without distractions for a phone/virtual interview; practice, practice, practice and be yourself!

If you have any emergency and need to cancel your scheduled interview, it’s best to call first and ask the manager and/or recruiter to reschedule. We understand things happen, and will allow for a one-time reschedule. It’s never a best practice to be a “no call, no show” to a scheduled interview, whether a phone screen, virtual and/or in-person interview.

If you need to cancel an interview or no longer wish to be considered, please send us a courtesy email or give us a call to let us know. Your resume/application will then be withdrawn from consideration, and we can keep you in mind for the future if your situation happens to change.
