Interview Do's

  • First impressions last, so smile.
  • Arrive 15-30 minutes before the scheduled interview. This gives you more time to relax, and check your appearances and documents.
  • As much as possible, complete the information in the company's application form, even if the data can be found in your resume. This means you can follow simple instructions.
  • You should know the contents of your resume - most questions will be taken from there.
  • Project a good image by wearing business attire for the interview. This indicates that you are serious about the job application. Even if the company has a casual dress policy, do not make the mistake of going to the interview in a t-shirt, jeans and tennis shoes (of course unless you are told to do so), the interviewer might think you are not serious about the job.
  • Sit with your back straight. Face the interviewer
  • Be confident. Don't be nervous. A seasoned interviewer can sense if you are intimidated.
  • A little cockiness is good if you can back it up with substantial accomplishments.
  • Maintain eye contact and a high level of enthusiasm.
  • Give your complete and undivided attention.
  • Actions speak louder than words, so keep body movements to a minimum.
  • Keep your mannerisms in check. Do not be so fidgetty, as it may project an insecure image.
  • Stay cool. Loosen up.
  • Be honest and be yourself.
  • Listen carefully to the questions, the answer could be hidden in the way the question was asked. Some interviewers do this to test your listening skills.
  • Be prepared to state the salary you want. It requires a definite answer, but bring it up only when you feel the interview is almost over and the topic has not yet been discussed. After the question of salary, ask about the employee's fringe benefits, vacation leave, office policies. This will show the interviewer that you are serious and interested. But careful not to sound to greedy.
  • If not mentioned, ask the interviewer when you can make a follow-up call on the result of your interview.
  • Say "Thank you for your time, Mr./Ms. ___ " and simultaneously shake hands with the interviewer when the interview is over.
