Use each answer as an opportunity to sell yourself to your potential employer. Candidates are able to submit applications to my business online; although I ensure that the process is easy, I still receive partially completed applications. To me this is a clear sign of laziness. © GETTY IMAGES 3 BE ON TIME Plan to arrive a few minutes early. If you're late, the employer will think that's what they can expect if they hire you. Most interview processes for spa technicians require two steps. Qualifi ed candidates will get invited to round two, typically a practical exam. Both phases may be on the same day, so be ready and available to spend the time and energy required. It's refreshing to have a candidate with a "Let's do this!" attitude versus someone who says, "Let me make a phone call fi rst." 4 DRESS APPROPRIATELY Your attire is an indicator to the employer of how you will look while representing them, so "business professional" is the way to go. Wear clothes that fi t: Nix the too-long pants, the too-tight or low-cut dress, and any jeans or shorts; when in doubt, a black skirt or slacks, a solid color shirt and dress shoes are safe bets. Also, hold off on the perfume/cologne, and make sure you don't have bad breath—both of these can be deal breakers.
