The One Thing to Use Your Phone For on an Interview |

By Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter

This is the one thing to use your mobile phone for on a job interview.

Understanding The Interviewer

This video is about the one thing, the only thing you should be using your phone for on an interview.

Now, I want to be clear, this is an in person interview, not a phone interview. So this is the one thing you should be using your phone for. And that is, before you arrive, I want to take a picture of your mouth and check and see if it’s anything your teeth. There are two bad hygiene things that I was taught a long time ago–dirty fingernails and stuff in your teeth.

Now obviously you need to take a shower beforehand, I’m not going down there. But these things that particularly men tend to forget about. And women sometimes get caught in the trap of at least of the thing with the teeth. So I’ll simply say if you’ve had lunch, if you’ve had breakfast, if you’ve eaten anything before the interview, take a quick snapshot of your mouth, just to make sure that there is no residue there from your meal. Then if you discover something improper, you’ve got time.

So better to do that, than to go on an interview, have that lace piece of lettuce in your teeth. And if you don’t believe me that that happens, trust me it happens. So, again, take a quick picture of your mouth. Check the results and smile like a star.
