AT THE INTERVIEW

 

 

First Impressions

Consider your appearance - plan in advance what you are going to wear – you are seeking to make a good impression so ensure a neat and tidy appearance. 

You have a few minutes to make an impression on your prospective employer... make it count!!

 

At the Interview

This is the best way that you will be able to ascertain if the company is right for you – remember that the interview is a two – way process and try not to get flustered!

It is always good to arrive a few minutes early and to bring any paperwork (copy of your CV, certificates of qualifications or training courses) with you in a document wallet or briefcase.

Remember, the first few minutes really do count – walk in to the interview room with a smile and firmly shake your interviewer’s hand.  During the interview be aware of your body language, keep it open and professional and keep eye contact with the interviewer.  Sit upright and look interested!

Don’t feel you have to rush any answers - you are more than entitled to take a few seconds to think about the question. 

Try to avoid closed responses (i.e. yes or no) and try to qualify these with examples. Don’t be afraid to ask for clarification if you are unsure of what is being asked.

At the end of the interview, it is common practice for the interviewer to ask if you have any questions...good job you prepared some in advance! 

Once you are finished, shake hands again, thank your interviewer for their time and smile on your way out!
