Appropriate dress wear
Regardless of how experienced and knowledgeable we are, job interviews will instil fear into a lot of us. It is the one opportunity to impress your potential future employer and demonstrate that you have the experience, skills and personality that they are looking for.
First of all, make sure you’re “dressed to impress” - choose appropriate clothes for both the company you are visiting and the role you are applying for. We’ve heard of candidates going to interviews in everything from ball gowns to brightly coloured cowboy boots. This will make you memorable, but for all the wrong reasons.
However it’s not just the interviewer you need to impress. It is worth entering ‘interview mode’ not just when you’re in the interview room but when you’re within a perimeter of the office. You never know who you may share a lift with or see in the coffee shop next door. Many employers also ask receptionists their opinion of candidates so be professional to anyone you may encounter.
