Present yourself

 

  • Again, first impressions are important! Be clean, tidy and appropriately dressed. If you are going for an office job, dress accordingly in a smart suit or co-ordinating separates with clean shoes, tidy hair etc. If you are going for a factory job it may be appropriate to wear work boots and jeans but make sure they are clean and tidy. Don't wear a hat. Don't chew gum or smoke.
  • Introduce yourself clearly; shake hands firmly.
  • Relax and concentrate. This interview time is only about the interview so try to put aside anything else going on in your life at the time.
  • It is common to be nervous during an interview, so try some slow deep breathing before or even during the interview.
