From start to finish, here are four tips for a successful interview at The Woodruff Arts Center.
It is always important to be knowledgeable about the company for which you are applying. In preparation for your interview, research The Woodruff Arts Center (the History and Leadership pages are great places to start.) Read the job description and qualifications carefully and bring any questions you might have about the role and its duties.
Once you are in the interview, you only have a few minutes to make an impact. Have a firm handshake, make eye contact, be attentive and ask questions that are relevant to your position. Let the interviewer(s) know you want to be here!
Highlight the skills and experiences outlined on your resumé and be prepared to answer questions about your potential position. Make it clear to the interviewer how you would specifically add value to The Woodruff Arts Center team.
Typically, it is custom to thank the interviewer(s) for their time and ask for business cards. After the interview, send a letter or email as soon as possible. This lets the interviewer(s) know that you are interested in the position and that you appreciate the information you received during your interview. Keep in mind that the submission process for positions at The Woodruff takes longer due to the high volume of applications; check the Careers page periodically to see if the position for which you applied is still available.
