5 Interview Tips

  • If you’re driving to your interview, work out where you’re going to park; do you need to take change for a car-park? Make sure you pay for an hour more than you think you will need. You don’t want to leave mid-meeting if it’s going well
  • What are you going to wear? Have you had your suit dry-cleaned? Is it in great condition? No loose threads, hanging hems or missing buttons

  • Are you due a hair cut? Do you look like someone you would hire for this job? Tidy beats fashionable

  • What is the weather likely to be? Have you got the right clothes to get you into the building as smart as you left home? Umbrella? Raincoat? Footwear?

  • Which version of your CV did you send when you applied for this job? Have you got a printed copy to take with you? Make sure it’s in perfect condition. No dog-eared corners or coffee stains
