Interview Tips

How to make a lasting impression

Do your research

  • Go through the company's website in detail. Give extra focus on the 'about' and news' pages.
  • However, don't stop there. Search online and gather as much information as you can.
  • Then it's time to utilize LinkedIn. Find the person you are interviewing with and use that information to build rapport at the interview.
  • Use your consultant! They should be able to provide you with lots of information about the position, the business and what the client will be looking for at the interview.

First impressions

  • Dress for success (and to impress)
  • Arrive a bit early. 5 minutes will do. By the time you tell reception who you are there to see, and them picking you up, it will be the right time.
  • Greet your interviewer with a big smile
  • Don't forget eye contact. It's crucial throughout the process.
  • Make some small talk on your way to their office or meeting room. Show your personality. They won't hire a robot that can do the job.

The interview

  • Give specific examples of how you have successfully demonstrated particular skills they are looking for.
  • Turn any weaknesses into positives. The best way to do that is admitting to having one but stating what actions have you take to address it.
  • Ask lots of questions. Never say you don't have any when the time comes. However, be careful not to ask something if it has already been covered during the interview.
  • Having said that never ask about holidays or salary in a first interview.
  • Do ask what the next step is and when you can expect to hear back from them.
  • Don't forget to mention that you are interested in the role and give them a big smile when you leave.
