Interview Tips

Tips on successful interviews

Being prepared for your interview is crucial and we would recommend the following:

  • You need to do as much research about the company as possible prior to your interview.
  • Prepare some questions to ask during the interview.
  • Look smart and presentable, first impression counts and if you are not sure of the dress code, ask.
  • Arrive 5-10 minutes early - being late for an interview is not acceptable whatever the excuse.
  • Make good eye contact when you greet your interviewer and give a firm handshake.
  • Smile and listen carefully to what the interviewer is saying.
  • Ask questions about the job, growth prospects and the company's commitment to training and personal development.
  • Be prepared with answers to competency-based questions which ideally relate to your work history.
  • Keep your answers concise - try not to waffle.
  • And finally let the interviewer know that you are interested in the job!
