So I have an interview in a few days about a job installing speaker systems for different places such as gyms and theatres. I was wondering what would help me out in the interview I was told by one of the workers i should bring in the 1X12 cab i recently built to show drive and how well I can work on things. I'm looking for anyhting to help me out here, even if it is obvious. Thank you for all future input.

Dress=first impression. Dress professionally, i.e. suit, tie (not a Mickey Mouse one either), and shine your shoes. Yeah it sounds stupid, but if you meet someone and they see your shoes are shined, it shows that you care about your appearance (and in turn other things like your job) more than the average Joe, making you that much more wanted. Show up in advance, not 5 minutes late, be nice, courteous, and honest.
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not

Would a color such as purple or green be better than a simple black and white tie? completely random but people never tell me this so I'm not sure.

Good hand shake = super important. Don't crush their hand but don't be all limp. Make sure your hands lock in properly, like at your thumb joint.
And look them in the eyes, but try not to be intimidating.

Just threw out random colors but thank you. I was planning black dress shirt, dress pants and shoes and a silver/white tie. And on the handshake thank you for mentioning that I know people overlook that so often.

Yea a suit is overdoing it for this job if you ask me. A Polo and slacks/khakis should work. Make sure your hands look good too. Nails clipped etc. Firm hand shake was mentioned. Shave if you grow facial hair. Comb your hair. Shower in the morning. Dont wear too much cologne. Make sure you use proper grammar and call him sir/mam unless instructed to do otherwise. Eye contact is a huge must and show confidence, not arrogance, there is a difference.

Hand shake, then don't sit down until they ask you to. I dunno why, but people always tell me that. Also don't wear purple or green for the love of god.

if you don't have a problem cutting it then I personally think you should. A professional haircut is fitting since well..it makes you look like a professional.

As for the don't sit till they let you. firm handshake. dress nicely biz. All great advice. I wore a dress shirt/pants/shoes to get a job as a dishwasher. weeks after getting the job the manager said "lol i actually hired you because you dressed up for an interview for a dishwasher position"

First order of business: Smile, make eye contact, and speak clearly.

Good lord, so much misguided fashion advice. When in doubt, do the opposite of what pre-pubescent metal heads tell you about looking professional.

Shirt: For no reason should you ever where a black dress shirt with a dark suit. No matter how old you are, you will always look like a dirty hipster in early high school.

Ties: One can never go wrong with a red tie and a white or light blue shirt. But for the love of god, don't look at musicians for dress ideas, look at TV anchors and Corporate Executives, thats what professional dress actually looks like, not Billy Joe Armstong wearing a sloppy red tie. Personally, I prefer bright colored ties with either very small checked patterns or diagonal stripes. (This is also applicable to most of the aforementioned individuals who have set the standard for professional dress)

Hair: Yes, get a haircut. Once again, long hair goes out of style at an exponential rate past 8th grade. Metalheads think it looks cool, the other 99% of the world thinks you look greasy and unkempt.

What level of management are you interiewing with?

I'd definitely bring that in as it applies to the job and if you did a good job on it the employer will probably be impressed. Just sell your skills really.

My friend told me that when going for an interview, go in and whip out your boner to show your intense enthusiasm for the job.

But for real, be chock full of confidence. Answer all questions honestly and to the best of your ability.
TOMAHAWK!
