Job Interview Tips for Teens

Research The Company


Take some time to research the company that is interviewing you beforehand. Knowing their mission, values, and culture will help you tailor your answers to fit the job and company.

Ask Questions


The interviewer will likely ask if you have any questions near the end of the interview. Asking questions about the company, the job, or anything else you're curious about shows that you're interested in the job and have done your research.

Dress appropriately


First impressions are crucial, so dress appropriately for the job interview. A suit and tie are probably unnecessary, but you should dress in clean, neat, and appropriate clothing.


Practice Common Interview Questions


Most common interview questions are easily found with a quick Google search. You will feel more confident during the interview if you practice answering interview questions before your interview.

Follow Up


After the interview, send a thank-you email to your interviewer. This shows that you appreciate their time and are still interested in the job. This also allows you to briefly remind them of your qualifications and interest in the position.
