Fellow ECN members may recall that I applied for the telecom apprenticeship about a month ago. I took the aptitude test, and did okay, but was a little worried about the math section, I didn't get to finish all the questions there. I breezed through the writing comprehension part, though.
Turns out I didn't do bad in the exam at all, because I got a certified letter from the IBEW local inviting me for an interview on the 18th of August.
So I'm almost in there, except for the interview part. Anyone have any tips for me to get through this part? I haven't interviewed for any kind of "blue-collar" job since my days as a foot messenger years ago, and like most of you here I'm sure, I hate job interviews.
I'm not even sure what to wear!!! I'd guess a full suit and tie would be overkill, or would it??? Help me out here, please? What would persuade you to hire a fresh apprentice, a relative newbie to the field, from an interview?
I'd say ... at minimum a standard shirt, slacks and tie....
But then again...I always lean conservative when dressing for things like job interviews (haven't had one in 4 years, thank god). Get a haircut and if you have any piercings in your face/ears take 'em out.
Best of luck!!!
