On your application...
  • Be sure to use appropriate capitalization, punctuation and grammar. Make sure that you  proofread your work. 

  • If possible, have someone else edit your application before you submit it. 

  • Answer all questions thoughtfully and fully; provide more than just the minimum response. 

  • Make sure that your application reflects your accomplishments and success to date.


In an interview...
  • Be on time for your interview. You should do your best to arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled interview time.  

  • Dress as professionally as you can. Jeans, t-shirts and sweatshirts are not appropriate for interviews. 

  • Take your time to think and take a breath before answering a question. 

  • If you can, it is always good to write a thank you letter to your interviewer. If you can follow up with a question you thought of or something specific you enjoyed from the interview, that is best.
