On Wednesday, Jan. 30, PRSSA will share some valuable interview tips with its members. The meeting will consist of a “What Not to Wear” fashion show along with some other interviewing tips that members learned about at the National PRSSA Conference, which was held in San Francisco last October.

Do you know what style of shoes you should wear to an interview? Do you know how to research the company you are interviewing with? Do you know what kinds of questions to ask? This information could make the difference between getting the job and not getting it because sometimes attention to detail is the deciding factor.

Unfortunately, over the years, I have heard from potential employers who have shared the reasons why they did NOT hire a student intern or new graduate as an employee. Many times, the simple mistakes made by these students could have been easily avoided with a little preparation on their part.

I encourage all PRSSA members to attend the meeting on Wednesday and get the tips to avoid making costly mistakes at their next interview. For additional information and maybe give you some ideas on topics to address at the meeting, PR Channel also offers some great advice for the PR Grad.

In the meantime, pull up a chair and let’s talk.

    I love this idea! I’ve gone on interviews and saw what the other applicants were wearing and I’ve been shocked.

    Recently, I attended an etiquette lesson where the speaker discussed attire. She said, “Women, if you think you look sexy…change your clothes. Work isn’t the place to look sexy.”

    I think that’s where a lot of girls go wrong.

    Good luck!
