Interview Advice

Success in Interviews

  1. Ensure that you are on time for the interview. Allow ample time for traffic and directions There is no excuse for lateness. If there is a problem outside your control, ring the interviewer in advance, this in most cases will be acceptable 
  2. Be smart in appearance. Well co-ordinated clothing Business attire. Usually a nice suit. Not too over the top but keep it tasteful and appropriate to the job. Dress as though you already work there. If not sure ask! Please make sure shoes are clean and polished.  
  3. Ensure you know who the person that you are having the interview with is, and their position with the company or organisation. 
  4. Prepare a clean up to date CV and bring along a spare copy to hand to the interviewer. 
  5. Write down a list of positive questions you would like to ask the interviewer about the role. 
  6. Please do not smoke prior or during an interview. There's nothing worse than a candidate who has poor personal standards which puts the interviewer right off!

Conducting the interview.

  1. Relax, smile, do not be too over confident 
  2. Be courteous and friendly. This leaves a good impression. 
  3. Listen carefully to any questions and answer when asked. Do not interrupt. 
  4. Look interested and keep your energy levels up. 
  5. Ask open ended questions that prompt an open response. Avoid answering just yes and no. Avoid asking about salary too early. It is more appropriate at the 2nd interview stage. 
  6. Make a list of your past successes and achievements and demonstrate to the interviewer why you would be the ideal candidate for the job. Any certificates or achievement stats are definitely a plus point 
  7. Keep the questions relevant to the job; do not go off on a tangent. 
  8. Don't be over familiar with the interviewer. Maintain good eye contact, alert and smile, keep professional courtesy. 
  9. Thank the interviewer for their time.

Wasn't too hard was it? Most of it is common sense!
