so i have an interview for an assistant spot next week... advice please

the times offered were early monday morning starting 9AM and the day before thanksgiving (wednesday) starting 6 PM. assuming normal studio operation hours, which one would be preferable?

I know I dont have to show up in a 3 piece suit. I will probably sport a button up and plain black jeans. I figured all I need is a resume (with references included) and a CD with some of my self recorded/produced work on it.

anyone have any advice?

Don't expect the cd to get listened to.

Try using the GS google search (2nd search box down) input "assistant job interview"

Personally, I look for someone who is going to be professional in their approach. Some one who can be fun to be around without being a dick and someone who is willing to do anything I ask without being clingy or overstaying their welcome.

If they can tread that fine line, I'll spill my guts on technique at the appropriate time.

They say most employers (in any kind of business) make up their mind within the first 30 seconds of the interview. If that´s the case then the first overall impression of you as a person and waht kind of energy you bring to the room will matter most.

True. You should be able to say the main reason why you are there, and why you are valuable to them under 1 minute.

30 secs to 1 minute is the perfect time when you have their undivided attention.

Congrats on getting the job!

Remember, if in the future you need to send a cv/resume, just do like Barney Stinson "How i met your Mother" it´s a sure thing!

Know the answer to this question:

Why should I hire you and not someone else?


Otherwise, just relax and be yourself. If you are a good fit with the people you'll know.
