Job Search Ethics

  • Never fabricate any information on your resume or in an interview.
  • If you accept a job offer, you should not continue interviewing for other jobs, nor accept a second job offer. Turning down a job offer you have just accepted can have negative consequences, and may even keep you from ever working for that company in the future.

Quick tips: Arrive on time; neat appearance and appropriate grooming; firm handshake; show enthusiasm & interest. Relate educational & work experience to the position; demonstrate good knowledge of the organization & the position, cite examples to show your strength. Project an attitude of honesty and sincerity. Show that you are a problem solver and a team player. Always ask questions and show passion for the position and the organization. Have a strategy for the interview. Prepare to articulately answer a question like: Why should we hire you instead of some other applicant.
