Interview Advice

1) Research the company ie. company profile, successes, management style, dress code etc.
If possible find out your interviewer's style, likes and dislikes. Prepare a list of questions to ask e.g.
- Is there a planned career development path?
- What are the companies plans for product development, new markets, industries, diversification, etc.

2) 70% of the impression you make will come from your non-verbal communication.
- Your body language is crucially important at interviews.
- First impressions count, so smile, give good eye contact and a firm handshake.
- Your interviewers raised eyebrows or crossed arms and legs are clear signs that they did not understand you, or are not happy with your response.
- Dress according to the companies dress code and culture.

Why not attend one of our Image Improvement Seminars to stand out against the other candidates (Seminars and One-to One advice includes:

3) Responding to questions e.g. (Try to assess what the interviewer is looking for)
- Why are you seeking new employment ?
- Do not denigrate your present employer. Be positive --- e.g. Lack of development and  training opportunities.
- What are your strengths and weaknesses ?
- The best weaknesses are disguised strengths. e.g. Not stretched or challenged.
- What attracted you to this organization ?
- I believe that your organization will help my career aspirations and development and I am confident that I can add value to the job.
