Interview Planner

by Kristy J. Meghreblian, M.A.

This handy interview planner is full of helpful hints to get you organized -– before, during, and after the interview:

  • Purchase correspondence paper stock (stationary and matching envelopes)
  • Keep enough paper stock on hand to print your resumes, cover letters and other correspondence on matching stationary and envelopes
  • Know the standards for writing cover letters, thank-you letters, and follow-through etiquette
  • Keep stamps on hand at all times!
  • Keep track of all career related written and verbal correspondence
  • Identify your basic interview wardrobe: select one or two outfits or suits that are considered fairly conservative for your field
  • Have your interview attire cleaned, pressed, and ready to wear
  • Polish your business shoes
  • Always have extra, clean copies of your resume with you
  • Keep on file an interview folder to bring with you on interviews. It should contain: a few resumes in a plastic sleeve, some reminders for yourself about your skills and your goals, and a pen and some paper to make notes before and after the interview
  • Bring to the interview: your interview folder, the names of the people you are meeting and the address with directions
  • Know where you’re going in advance; have a test-drive the day before
  • Leave yourself plenty of time to get there
  • You want to arrive 10-15 minutes early
  • Follow up with thank-you letters within 24 hours
  • Make sure you can be reached — whether by phone, fax or email
