Always prepare properly for interviews. Do your research on the company concerned so you can effectively answer any questions. Be clear about why you want the job and what you can offer the employer. Communicate clearly and confidently with the interviewer and have your questions ready for the end of the interview. Endeavour to be open, honest and relaxed.
be fully prepared
Remember, you never get a second chance to make a first impression, so to avoid getting caught off guard in an interview spend time preparing for every eventuality and reviewing what questions to expect, and how to answer them. Always have a list of questions ready to ask the employer for when the time comes and you get asked.
always arrive on time
Allow yourself plenty of time to get to an interview, arrive late and you will immediately find yourself on the back foot before the interview has even begun.
pay attention to body language
Your body language can have a significant impact on how you’re perceived in an interview, so you have to be aware of it from the moment you step through the door. Poor body language can easily make you look disinterested and unenthusiastic.
all in a handshake
It’s important to dress smartly and smile in an interview, but research shows that a firm handshake is what really matters when it comes to impressing potential employers. The right kind of handshake can convince people that you’re confident, have good social skills and even possess strong leadership qualities.
cv writing tips
Keep the information in any CV brief and relevant. Emphasise your key qualities and achievements. Endeavour to keep you CV to two pages, three at most.
Pay attention to layout, spelling and punctuation. Get somebody else to critique your CV and offer feedback. Our staff would be happy to assist you in this process if required.
check for typos and double check everything
Incorrect spelling or grammar errors in your CV will make it easy for an employer to reject you at the first stage, particularly if there is strong competition for a job. Double check everything and always spell check your CV each time you amend it, asking a friend to proof the final version.
tailor your cv for the role
It may sound time consuming, but making the effort to tailor your CV to suit the requirements of each particular job that you apply for can greatly increase your chances of securing an interview. Avoid the one CV fits all scenario, do some research, and demonstrate to the employer that you understand what they are looking for.
read the job description
Make sure you thoroughly read the job description and don’t just apply because there’s an impressive sounding job title or an exciting salary. Read the requirements of the role and if you’re happy it’s suitable, use those requirements to tailor your CV and demonstrate you’re the best candidate for the role.
use specific keywords
Keywords are essential to your CV, without them your CV won’t get noticed. More and more recruiters are using job sites to search for suitable candidates based on specific keywords. It’s vitally important therefore to try and include words in your CV which relate to the type of job you’re looking for.
