At the Interview:

Remember that an interview is a two-way process and is an opportunity for you to ask questions as well as be asked them. Find out about the company - think about what you might need to know. If you want, make a note of a couple of questions to raise at the end of the interview. Show the employer why you are excited about the prospect of joining their organisation.

  • Express good body language
  • Give good eye contact and a firm handshake
  • Don’t be afraid to say that you want this job!
