Whether you love or loathe interviews, they're a key part of the recruitment process and the more preparation you do in advance, the more effective you can be. On the day, remember to:

  • Dress appropriately
  • Arrive in good time
  • Use positive and confident body language
  • Remember that nerves are normal and can help you to focus
  • Give full answers that unpack the skills you've used
  • Do yourself justice - don't skimp on what you've achieved. Interviews aren't a time for being bashful!
  • Remember to be polite and personable to all the people you meet on the day.
