Veteran Job Interview & Follow Up Tips

Research the company before you go for the interview, dress appropriately, practice answering and asking interview questions, and make a concerted effort to impress the interviewer with your skills, experience, confidence, and expertise. It's important to follow up after an interview by thanking everyone you met. Also reiterate your interest in the position and remind the hiring manager why you're an excellent candidate for the job. When you receive a job offer, it's important to take the time to carefully evaluate the offer so you are making an educated decision to accept, or to reject, the offer. You don't have to accept a job just because it was offered to you, but do carefully evaluate it and if you decline, do so politely.
