How to complete a good interview

13/05/2013 by

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

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...
