DRESS UP!!! Wow I saw so many people in the interview waiting room wearing jeans and a t-shirt. Really? Is this how we dress to impress? Educate yourself people. Don’t dress for the job you’re interviewing for, dress for the one you want. That is what I was always taught. Do you want to work at the bottom the rest of your life? Maybe you do and then yeah, maybe you should wear those ripped jeans and t-shirt. If you want to look smart and at least appear to know what you’re doing, dress up.
SPEAK UP!!!! Don’t make my mistake and bumble at the beginning of the interview. When the casting lady came out and threw out her hand with a smile, “Nice to meet you,” I shook her hand and tried to say it back, but barely audible words came out. I couldn’t form a sentence properly because I was so excited and nervous. Afterwards, I was better. I calmed right down and started walking down the long hallway to her office. She went right into it. She asked right off why I wanted to work at Disney. Nerves calmed down and I started to speak up and more importantly, speak properly.
SMILE!!!! I saw a few people go into the interview with such frowns and serious faces on. Disney is a happy place and they want happy employees! Also, don’t over smile…. what does that mean? Don’t fake a smile. Don’t do the Disney yet. They want someone real. They want real happy and real smiles, not fake and forced smiles. These people are so well trained, well trained to know the difference between someone who is smiling on the inside as well as the outside.
ENJOY!! Just enjoy the interview. I waited for an hour before my interview. I went in early and sat down in a room full of hopefuls. The nerves were rising more and more. I had so many thoughts in my mind. It is a big decision to move down to Florida. Just smile and have fun with the interview.
P.S. I got the job.
