Interview Day

Aim to arrive about 10-15 minutes early – you don’t want to feel stressed or anxious about being late.

Your Image

Check your clothes and appearance in a full-length mirror before setting off.  Remember to remove gum before the interview.

Walk Tall

You may be nervous but try to ‘walk tall’, shake hands with confidence, smile and maintain eye contact.

Sitting Comfortably

Sit comfortably but straight, try not to cross your legs, don’t fidget or play with hair/nails/clothes etc.

Control Pace

Allow the interviewer to dictate the pace, don’t interrupt and don’t monopolise the meeting.


Listen to the questions asked and answer fully, but succinctly.  Stick to the relevant points and try not to waffle.

Blow your own Trumpet

Create an opportunity to let the interviewer know what you will contribute to the organisation.  Give examples to demonstrate your skills, ability, strengths

Company Research

Let them know you have researched the company – you could use this as a basis to phrase one of your questions.

Positive Comments

Never, ever give negative comments about past employers or colleagues.

Expressions of Interest

Before you leave, express your interest in the job opportunity with enthusiasm – no employer will ever make an offer to someone who doesn’t appear enthusiastic at the interview stage.

Confidence & Smile

Leave with confidence, a firm handshake and a smile!

Call Us

Don’t forget to call your Consultant when you come out of the interview to let them know how you got on.
