For getting your interview off to a flying start is to make sure that you dress professionally. How you dress says a lot about your intentions for this job. And if you haven't dressed professionally, what does it say to the interviewer? Well, it tells the interviewer that you don't care and you can't be bothered. And therefore why should they hire you? So make sure you dress professionally for your interview because it makes sense and the recruiter might consider you for this role among many.
Make sure that throughout the interview you have good posture, you smile, and you demonstrate really good manners. This is important. And how can you demonstrate good manners during your interview? Well, right, at the very start when you first meet the interviewer and say, Hi, my name is John (your name), and I'm here today for the interview. Thank you very much. So, just by saying that demonstrate really good manners. Don't forget, do not sit down in the interview chair, until invited to do so.
So once you're sat down in the interview chair, the interviewer is going to say something, like, welcome to the interview. Can you start off by introducing yourself or they might say tell me about yourself. Now whenever you introduce yourself during an interview it's really important and that you include the following four things.
- Talk about the skills and qualities you have that are a match for the role you are applying for.
- Talk about any experience or qualifications you possess the are relevant to the position.
- Talk about any significant achievements you have gained in work life or personal life so far. And then finally,
