If you’re a college senior about to graduate, you’ve probably heard an endless amount of career advice from you school, family, older friends, and anyone who finds out you’re weeks away from entering the real world (aka, everyone). You’re sick of it. I know, I’ve been there. The last thing you want to do right now is worry about a job when your days spent sleeping, studying and partying are numbered. But the best way to not stress is to have a game plan.

According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) 2014 Job Outlook Survey, about 1.6 million students will enter the workforce with a Bachelor’s degree this spring. That’s like, a lot of peeps. Not to freak you out or anything (you’ll be fine, we promise!), but in order to have a kick-ass senior week, you should be thinking about where you want to be post-grad.

Whether you decide to go back to school or seek a job, you’ll be going on a ton of interviews. We already told you some tips for landing a job, and now we’re here to give you specific dos and don’ts to nail your interview. With the help of Keri Ferry, Founder and CEO of 25 Bedford, we break down what to wear, ask and how to kill it when you finally get that call to come in and meet with the hiring manager at your dream job.
