Well its finally happened. 3 months of searching and I got my first interview next week. A bit of a drive (close to 5 hours), so I'll be heading down a day early to scope out the town, get a feeling for the area, etc. Its a code enforcement position.
Im a bit nervous already about this, and I am just looking for some tips besides the ones found in the entry level interview thread. One question I have, is to wear a suit or just go with a sports coat and khakis? The town has a little over 13,000 residents. Im worried that I might look a little overdressed with the whole suit deal, although I guess overdressed is better than underdressed.
One thing I found kind of different was the phone call I got from the town planner. I did not get to my phone in time and he left me a message, referring to himself by his first name. Should I continue that or call him Mr. Last Name?
I was also asked to bring some work samples. I have plenty of work samples, but nothing that is really code enforcement related. During my internship last summer, a good portion of what I did was code enforcement, but I do not really have any actual work to show for that. What should I do in this situation? Just bring samples of my GIS work and some writing examples? (GIS was a requested skill).
Thanks for any tips you can give. I'll be scouring that entry level interview thread from now until Tuesday
