- Know your passion, skills, and strengths that define your personal brand. Have the ability to effectively communicate what makes you unique and relevant for the role.
- Make sure to update your resume with your DSA experience. Your resume should reflect your personal brand and highlight your achievements and experience related to the role. Double check spelling and have someone else proof read for you before it’s put in front of a potential new manager.
- Dress the part – dress appropriately – show you are serious about the interview process and understand the nature of the business unit you are interviewing in. If you don’t know – ask your recruiter. Bring your interview outfit as a change of clothes if needed. Be remembered for your interview, not your attire.
- Nervous, rusty or just want to proactively prepare? Check out behavioral interviewing tips on YouTube, Google or even Pinterest.
- Be prepared – research the role or prepare yourself however you would if it were an outside opportunity. Be knowledgeable but not a know it all.
- Ask questions! Prepare questions in advance, this is your chance to interview them and get the inside scoop.
- Stay professional and courteous with respect to the process.
- Thank you notes are always appreciated, going around the recruiter and directly inquiring with the hiring manager or interviewers – not so much
