Be Polite: Go out of your way to be polite to everyone you meet on the day of the interview.

Body Language: Focus on the basics. First impressions count, so you need to make a strong first impression. Firm handshake, direct eye contact and friendly smile. As the interview progresses ensure you demonstrate sincere interest and enthusiasm. Don’t leave the employer in any doubt about your interest. Maintain good eye contact during the interview. Maintain good posture. Keep arms, legs, and feet relaxed and uncrossed.

Focus: Maintain focus throughout the interview. Consider the client requirements when answering each interview question.

Concise Answers: Keep your answers brief and concise. A short relevant answer makes more impact than a long irrelevant one.

Concrete Examples: This will help you stand out from the competition. If you “talk the talk”, then “walk the walk”. Don’t wait to be asked for examples. Get into the habit of supporting statements with hard facts.

Listen & Adapt: It’s important to pay attention during interview. Observing the interviewer can provide important clues. Don’t be afraid to clarify questions.

Positive Attitude: It’s important to maintain a positive attitude throughout the interview. Beware of negativity, particularly when talking about previous employers.

Ask Questions: You must ask questions at interview. Employers will provide an opportunity to ask questions. Not asking questions can be interpreted as lack of interest or confidence. Use your judgment on the number of questions you ask. NB: An interview is a two-way process. It is important to access key information to help you make informed decisions.
