Pre-Interview Preparation

Before arriving for your interview, it is important that you know the company’s philosophy, mission, goals and industry. This does not have to be a detailed investigation; the general idea is to gain the insight necessary to demonstrate how your experience, skills and demeanor match the company’s requirements for the position.

Interview Conduct

The rule is to dress in a formal manner, even if the workplace has a casual dress environment. Aim for elegance and discretion in your interview clothing — an overly bold fashion statement could make a bad impression.

The Interview

Job and business interviews in Mexico tend to be very formal in some respects and informal in others. As a jobseeker, you should, in general, consider each interview to be a ‘conversation’ that allows your interviewer(s) to evaluate whether you meet the requirements and fit the profile for the open position with the company.

Post Interview

While it is not customary in Mexico to follow up with a thank you email or phone call, you may write an email expressing appreciation for the interview. In such a note, you can add a specific and short comment to give the recruiter new facts about your qualifications and why you are the right person for the job.

This is just a short sample of what you’ll find in over 100 pages of information in the complete Mexico Guide.
