You’ve applied for the job and you’ve been called in for an interview – congratulations!
They are obviously impressed with your experience and skills and now it’s time to back it up with a stellar interview performance! Here are some ways you will smash it and impress your interviewers.
1. Get a good night’s sleep
This might seem obvious, but nerves definitely can keep us awake all night. You do not want to turn up tired and yawn throughout the interview
2. Eat breakfast
This will give you the energy to make it through the process and be able to focus.
3. Be well presented
Find out what the company’s dress code is before going to your interview. Although you want to match the recommended attire of the company, if in doubt, go more formal than casual. Don’t forget to take a shower, wear deodorant, but skip the strong perfume or cologne. If you wear makeup, keep it natural .
4. Practise your handshake
A good handshake is firm, but not too strong. Try and match the person whose hand you are shaking as a good guide. Make sure your nails are clean and tidy.
