Recruiting advisor Léa Gariépy will help you stand out from the crowd with 10 rules that will help you get your dream job.

Let’s get started!

  • Tip #1: have a well-presented resumé. Clear and to-the-point. One page max.
  • Tip #2: find out the names of the people who will be interviewing you. You might even want to connect with them on LinkedIn.
  • Tip #3: arrive on time. Punctuality is important during the hiring process.
  • Tip #4: give a firm handshake, not too strong and not too weak.
  • Tip #5: be knowledgeable about the job you are applying for. Find out about the company; that will show you are prepared for the interview.
  • Tip #6: During the interview, listen carefully to the questions you are asked. Take the time to think about your reply, and be calm and concise when answering.
  • Tip #7: Ask not just any questions at the end of the interview, but questions that interest you to help you learn more about the company.
  • Tip #8: You can bring documents, a notepad and/or your resumé with you to show you are well prepared.
  • Tip #9: Have a clean, fresh look. Appropriate business attire.
  • Tip #10: Last but not least, always have a professional attitude during the entire interview and throughout the process. Be friendly—after all, people need to want to work with you! And above all, smile!
