One question that comes up often is better to interview in person or over the phone.
If you can in person is recommended. Depending on how important the position is to you and how close you are to the location. For technician position that is across the country, the panel will normally understand that a phone interview is the best option.
One thing I recommend is in an interview, be positive. We all know that with our jobs there are things that are a pain like red tape and low salaries but.look what we get paid to do, stay positive. This includes questions that talk about working with difficult coworkers and hard situations. If you start going down the blame game or becoming negative it can be a turn off to an perspective employer.
One great idea before an interview is to have a few mock interviews with your friends. I’ve often seen potential candidates that look great on paper, they have the experience but when the interview comes around none of the experience is mentioned. Candidates think that its on their resume and that’s enough but for agencies that can’t ask follow-up questions, they need you to be detailed and explain your experience. Don’t rely on your resume to do the talking.
