Hey guys! Sorry It’s taken me so long to post, but keeping up with school while trying to live the dream isn’t as easy as you’d think. But anyway here I am with everything you need to know for your face-to face interview.
First of all, congratulations!
By now you must know that neither the Walt Disney Company nor EG International Recruiting are responsible for covering any of your travel expenses to get to the interview, that’s all on you. (“Like” Volaris or Interjet on Facebook and you can find some great discounts sometimes). Make sure you get there in time for the “just in cases”. What do I mean by that? I mean: Airline lost your luggage, airport traffic, bus terminal traffic, traffic, and more traffic. These interviews are held in big cities so you can expect some BIG traffic.
Dress to impress! Remember: you’re impressing BUSINESS PEOPLE from one of the highest regarded companies IN THE WORLD. LADIES: Please, please, please! DO NOT dress like you’re heading out to the club, or about to be pimped out. I saw this WAY too much at my interview. Here are some guidelines:
*Maximum heel height: 3 inches /5 cm
*Dresses/skirts must be knee length (not too tight, no stretchy material)
*If you wear tights: MUST be opaque
*Button down blouses not showing cleavage
*Dark neutral colors/Blouses paired with suit or skirt must be conservative color and prints
*Pant suits are totally acceptable (and cool if you find the right cut)
*Natural make-up (NO RED LIPSTICK or FAKE EYELASHES)
Guys: keep it simple, keep it classy
*SUIT UP! (Dark neutral colors)
*wear a tie (don’t be a doofus)
*WEAR DRESS SHOES (who told you guys it’s ok to wear tennis shoes/mocassins to a formal interview???)
Now, the most important element to the interview process is: SMILE! SMILE, SMILE, SMILE, SMILE from the minute you walk into that building. Trust me, you never know who is watching.
The interview doesn’t last more than 10 minutes and they’re looking for you to be calm, cool and collected with a casual smile on your face. (Don’t overdo it, you’ll look ridiculous). Some questions:
*Tell me about you extra-curriculars
*Talk to me about why you applied for this program
*Tell me about yourself
*What were your top 5 position choices?
*Out of the 500 people I’ve interviewed, why should I remember you?
