Things you should be aware of before the interview.

●Pre-interview

Be familiar with the company and the person you are interviewing with, this will ensure there is no lull in the conversation.

Have multiple copies of your Curriculum vitae/resume and organize any other material you are taking with you.

Turn off your cellphone completely, putting it on vibrate is not enough

Do not be late! Give yourself atleast 20minutes and be conscious of potential traffic.

■Top interview tips

Research the company you applied at find out their speciality and what they do, what they represent.

Practice and Repeat

Get ready ahead of time

Be on time -Try by all means to be atleast there 15minutes before the interview

Try and stay calm

Follow up after the interview

●The interview

First impression lasts longer, walk talk and look the part, be confident not cocky. Maintain eye contact, present a strong handshake and smile!

One minute pitch. Prepare for the question:Tell us about yourself " by planning out your focus and emphasizing relevant skills that you have early in the interview

Avoid negative statements

Even if you are asked somewhat negative question always portray yourself in a positive light and never talk bad about your former boss.

Your skills

Focus on skills you can implement immediately, employers want to hear on how you could hit the ground running and contribute to their company immediately

Tell your story

Support your claim of being the best candidate by providing examples of situations where you developed , enhanced or used specific relevant skills

Money

Wait until the end or atleast halfway through the interview to ask about the job's financial particulars
