Scheduled for a job interview and you need some guidance? Here are some tips for the next time you meet with your future employer.

Hit The Books

Don't go in blind - do your research into the company and the industry. You might get asked about it, and not having the answers will cost you the job!

Prepare for Questions

Job interview questions sound scary, but they're actually pretty simple! Do a little bit of preparation, so you're ready for any questions they throw at you.

Stay Positive

If you're asked about previous companies you've worked at, avoid giving negative answers. This can make you seem like a negative person, and not the right person for the job. Always try to put a positive spin on things.

Body Language

Your body language could matter more than your CV! Make sure you're dressed well, smell good (but don't drown the interviewer in your cologne/perfume) and speak clearly. A good firm handshake and eye contact are important too!

Give Thanks

Sending a short thank you to the interviewer can help them remember you! Make a few notes after the interview about what was said and send your interviewer a lovely note that touches on 1 or 2 things they said.
