But if you follow this list (and Drizzy’s Dance Moves), you’ll be a Pro in No Time!

              1. They’ll Probably Call You on Your Cell Phone. Make sure it’s Fully Charged, and get yourself in the Zone at least 15 minutes before the Interview begins

              2. Make sure you are in a Room by Yourself without any Distractions or Outside Noises

                …Maybe not that one, but you get the idea.

                 

              3. Stand and smile while you talk! This will help keep your Voice Clear and make You sound more Energetic

              4. Be excited about your answers! The Interviewer won’t be able to see your Face/Gestures, so it’s really important to Convey your Emotions with your Voice

              5. Move around while you talk (buut don’t overdo it). This will help keep you Focused on Your Answers!

              6. Answer questions fully, but make sure that you don’t talk for too long…

              7. Think about the questions before answering. It is perfectly fine to ask the interviewer for a few seconds to compose an answer!

              8. Finally, make sure that you Completely Sell Yourself – this is your First Introduction to the Company, let them know how awesome you are!

                You should probably watch out for double negatives, though
