Things to remember

· Interviewers name____________________________ (very important!)

· Smiling helps!

· Make sure you address your interviewer by name any chance you can

· Don’t stare at your notes

· Think about all of you answers in depth but only put “cliff notes” so you aren’t READING directly off your notes

· Avoid “Ummm” and “Uh”

· Don’t worry about being too professional. They are look for people that are fun loving and enjoy talking to people

· Talk as much as possible but don’t mubble on and on

· RELAX

-Don't go Disney Crazy! there is a line between loving Disney and being a crazy person. even if you are Crazy Disney person (like me) toning it down two notches may be a good thing.
