Well, tomorrow is the day for the big interview with Dave Ramsey at Financial Peace Plaza in Nashville.
Ironically, today I received a completely separate email in my other email account from Dave Ramsey's people requesting a phone interview with another guy (I used my old application which had my less-used email on it) for the same position. This is good news! I believe this points to the fact that they were going to pull my resume anyway for an interview.
Many of you do not know this, but a few years ago, I interviewed for a similar position with Dave Ramsey's Lampo Group. I was living in Florida at the time and flew in just for the interview. That is when I found out how great the company was to work for! But, in God's providence, I did not receive a follow-up interview.
I will be better prepared this time as a result of that experience.
But I need some advice, especially from those of you who interview people at your jobs. Already, I have received some great tips from Michelle's cousin and it was so good that I want to ask you for some more.
- How should I dress? The company has a casual dress with most of the employees and even Dave wearing jeans and flip flops. However, this is an interview where I want to put my best foot forward. How much is too much? How little is too little?
- What are some questions I should anticipate from the HR guy (he was very easygoing last time) and the sales staff (they were very tough)?
- What are some questions I can ask about the company?
- How much energy should I bring to the table, considering that I used such an unusual and somewhat pushy method to get the interview in the first place?
