You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
So be prepared, and give it your best shot!
Do not smoke before the interview, the smell is not pleasant and may put the interviewer off.
Give a firm hand shake when you greet the interviewer and maintain eye contact throughout the interview.
Never interrupt the interviewer, if you have any questions wait until the end when you are asked.
Always have a question prepared to ask at the end of the interview.
Prepare for your interview by researching the company’s website and reading the job spec, there is nothing more embarrassing than being faced with the question “what do you know about us” when the answer is “nothing”.
Prepare your journey in advance so you are not late, flustered and stressed by the time you arrive at the interview.
Do not chew gum at the interview.
Dress to impress! Always endeavour to wear a suit to interview, if you do not have a formal suit than a clean smart shirt and trousers/skirt will have the same effect.
Never be late for an interview.
Speak slowly and clearly, be friendly and relaxed but not laid back, body language is very important in an interview, do not cross your arms, do not swear.
Thank your interviewer at the end of the interview and ask them when they will make a decision, its good to look interested and keen.
