Tips for a Successful Lunch Interview

It has been established that you have the skills and education necessary for the position. The interviewer wants to see if you will fit in with the company culturally, and how your skills will complement the rest of the department. Your goal in a Lunch (one-on-one) Interview is to establish a rapport with the interviewer and show him or her that your qualifications will benefit the company.

The setting may be more casual, but remember it is a business lunch and you are being watched carefully. Use the lunch interview to develop common ground with your interviewer. Follow his or her lead in both selection of food and in etiquette.

Don’t order spaghetti ☺.
