How to complete a good interview

13/05/2013 by

Blank

You’ve got an interview – but how do you ensure that you make the best impression? What should you do before the interview?

Below is some guidance and advice from us here at Montash.

  • Do your research beforehand and know the exact address of where you are meant to attend and the time of your interview
  • Ensure you do your research on the company and the job that you are interviewing for
  • Dress to impress in a professional manner but ensure you check the dress code with your recruitment agency. Some start-up companies make a point of not wanting suits, but you should be told this in advance.
  • Arrive 5 to 10 minutes early for the interview
  • Wait to be offered a chair before sitting
  • Smile – people will naturally smile back and the atmosphere will instantly be calmer
  • Maintain good body language and posture at all times
  • Greet the interviewer with a firm handshake and maintain good eye contact throughout
  • Show enthusiasm about the position and company you are interviewing with
  • Try and get the business cards from your interviewer
  • Ask questions about the company and its history
  • Remember to ask at the end of the interview when you should expect to hear back from the company
  • Do thank interviewer(s) for their time
