    Preparing Lobster for Competition

  • Be prepared for some position specific questions-Basic Cooking and Sanitation questions are common.
  • Research the Potential Employer/Company - Cuisine style, other properties, awards etc.
  • List your accomplishments, awards, skills, Certifications and experience that are relevant to the position you are seeking.
  • Determine if you are a match for the position. Do your skills and experience match all the requirements?
  • Does the company and position fit your requirements, your goal. Show how you are a fit.
  • Prepare some smart questions to ask the recruiter/interviewer. If you've done your research, this will be easy.
  • List three reasons why you want work for this employer.
  • Be ready to illustrate your past successes. Prepare your goodbye -- your exit line.
  • Practice with a friend.
  • If possible videotape your trial run so you can refine your presentation. Look for movement problems, touching hair or fidgeting in the chair and try to eliminate them.



Common Courtesies

  • Arrive at least ten minutes before your interview time.
  • Smile.
  • Firm handshake
  • Be pleasant to everyone you encounter. (often those you meet before the interview have input on hiring)
  • Do not eat, chew gum or smoke.
  • Say thank you.
  • Use proper grammar.

Practice Active Listening

  • Acknowledge with nods and affirmative comments.
  • Take notes selectively.
  • Maintain eye contact.
  • Ask smart questions when appropriate.

Dress and Appearance

Most of the interviewer's initial impression is visual. Wear clean, pressed professional attire. Make sure you are well groomed, and wear no cologne. Leave you body piercing jewelry at home!

Body Language

Lean forward slightly to express your interest. Shoulders back and head up shows confidence. Avoid fidgeting, as it will make you seen ner vous or insecure.

Content

  • Focus on your benefit to the prospective employer.
  • Be positive and upbeat.
  • Avoid any negative comments about former employers, associates or positions -- even if true.
  • Be honest about your experience.
  • Be clear and concise.
  • Underplay difficulties, disappointment and challenges. Instead emphasize the experience, lessons and solutions.
  • Ask smart questions.- Schedule, Benefits, Uniform, Training.

Salary

If asked to say what salary you desire, answer with a question like, "What range do you have in mind?" If the interviewer persists or requires an answer on the form, give a range.
Use a realistic range based on the current market but don't put down something you cannot live with.

What is the Process?

Make sure you know the next step in the process before you leave the interview.

Conclusion

End the interview with a smile, firm handshake and your prepared goodbye. Be sure to thank the interviewer for their time, and offer any additional information they may need to make a decision.
