Interview Techniques

First Impressions


Research has shown that your interviewer is likely to make up his or her mind about you within the first thirty seconds of having met you.  Make sure that you have an outfit that is smart and presentable.  If you feel comfortable you will appear confident and relaxed.








The following tips will help you to make a positive impression:


  • Shake hands firmly and smile!
  • Maintain eye contact while answering all questions and speak clearly.
  • Answer questions fully, try to avoid answering with a straight "yes" or "no".
  • Try to think of questions to ask the interviewer to demonstrate your interest and enthusiasm.
  • Try to present yourself in the best possible light, but make sure that you don't say something that you can not substantiate.

Expect the Unexpected

Bear in mind that interviews vary enormously.  You may be asked to sit an aptitude test to prove that you have the necessary skills for the job. The interview itself may be a quick, informal chat across a crowded office or it could involve a panel of interviewers all firing questions at you. There may even be group activities with other candidates designed to see how you perform in a team situation, or you may be called back for further interviews on another day.  Often, candidates fail to perform to the best of their abilities because they were thrown into a situation they were not expecting .
