DON’T TRASH TALK (past jobs, partners, brands)

No one wants to hire negativity.

DON’T FOCUS ON THE MONEY

Get the job. Crush it. Everything will take care of itself.

DON’T LIE

It’s a small world. Everyone talks.

DON’T SHOWBOAT

Enjoy a daily slice of humble pie.

DON’T BE CYNICAL

Cynicism is small and closed. Be big and open minded.

DON’T NOT ASK QUESTIONS

An interview is a two way conversation. Take advantage of it.

All that being said…

DO HAVE STRONG OPINIONS

DO STAY PASSIONATE

DO BE INFORMED

After all, you’re interviewing for a specific job at a specific place with a specific person, at a company which has a very specific website which is definitely connected to the world wide web. So always do your homework and know your stuff.

Good luck.
