Landmark Group Interview Tips

Landmark Group Interview tips:

  1. Learn about the company. Learn as much as you can about the company's mission, objectives, goals, and future plans. This shows that you are informed and interested in what the company is trying to achieve. Also when asked “why do you want to work for us” you can answer in an educated manner.
  2. Fill out the application completely. Leave nothing unanswered or blank. It is always better to write in that you don’t know the answer or that it is not applicable than to leave it blank.
  3. Be 10 minutes early to the interview. There is never a good excuse for being late to an interview and could cost you the job. If traffic is a concern be sure to leave early.
  4. Turn your cell phone off during the interview. Applicants should focus all of the attention on the interview and cell phones (even left on vibrate) are a huge distraction.
  5. Dress appropriately for the job. Always be neat, clean and presentable. The employer will look at you as a representation of the company.
  6. Don’t babble or make jokes. When answering questions don’t babble on and on, keep your answers short and direct to the question asked. Also don’t make jokes as an interview is not the place to try out new material.
  7. Don’t bad mouth former employers. You may have had bad experiences with a former employer however an interview is not the place to discuss this.
  8. Maintain good eye contact. Staring at the floor, ceiling, or wall when speaking or listening makes you appear disinterested or untrustworthy.
  9. Ask questions. At the end of the job interview make sure you have some questions to ask. It will reinforce your strong interest in the job.
  10. Be aware of your body language. Based on your body language it can be seen if you come across as insecure or self-assured. It can also show if you are a busy or a quiet type and it helps give an impression of whether you are speaking truthfully or not.

  1. I recommend going one step further when dressing for an interview. Dress for the job plus one level above. Jeans and t-shirt are appropriate for our maintenance department's daily work schedule but a button down shirt will impress the maintenance department's boss at an interview. The t-shirt may be acceptable, but a nicer shirt will be impressive before you even shake hands.

  2. I couldn't agree more. Good advice I've stuck to is to dress for the job you want, not the job you have.
