Don’t Forget to Bring This to IT Job Interviews

Your IT recruiters and IT staffing companies probably gave you a checklist of things to bring to your interviews for IT jobs.  Your technical recruiters likely spoke to you about what to wear, how many copies of you resume to pack, etc. But there’s one thing that your IT staffing agencies may not have told you to bring: your energy.

Though they may not explicitly talk about it, IT staffing firms and hiring managers want you to make a conscious effort to display a good level of enthusiasm and energy in interviews.  While it’s not necessary (or even good) to be as bubbly as a cheerleader, you do need to make sure you display some excitement about the job.  IT recruiting firms have countless stories of candidates who were rejected because they seemed utterly unenthused about jobs or companies.  Don’t be one of those stories—bring your energy with you to your IT job interviews!
