Insider tips from our Head of HR and Training
a. Dress to impress
It is important to look your best on the day of the interview, even if the company does not have a formal dress code, you want to stand out from other candidates. Look professional!
b. Arrive early
Anticipate traffic and the worst-case scenario, ensure that you arrive at least 15 minutes early to the interview. This also gives you a chance to have a look around and get an idea of the company culture, how do the staff interact? How does everyone behave? Being on-time also makes a good first impression.
c. It is ok to be nervous
Nerves are expected at an interview, arriving a bit early and being very well prepares can help a lot. This is why I suggest making all your notes in your notebook, so that even if you are a bit nervous, you can refer to your notes. Take a deep breath, it is ok!
d. Preparation is everything!
Have I mentioned this enough?
e. Remember to smile and show good body language
Again, you want to make a good and lasting impression, ensure that you show good body language and a positive attitude before and during the interview.
