Interview Tips

Finding a job can feel stressful. Below are some of our tips on finding a job:

  • Don't apply for multiple jobs in different industries. The employer will be unsure about where your real desire lies and may not even contact you.
  • Use professional email addresses. Modern and ‘funny’ ones that are inappropriate do not sit well with employers.
  • Always maintain eye contact in the interview. This shows the employer that you are interested and confident in what they have to say.
  • Give yourself plenty of time to get to the interview. Research the location, do a test run if you have to. Getting there 15 minutes early is always better than 5 minutes late. An employer may think you will be late for work if you can't get to an interview on time.
  • Make sure your referees speak highly of you. There is nothing worse than a bad reference from a recent employer.
  • Have your resume proof read before sending it to an employer. Spelling mistakes and grammatical errors will not help your cause. Do not put a photo of yourself on your resume as it is not necessary.
  • Dress well at all times. Poor presentation gives the employer the impression that your work performance may also be poor. It is better to overdress in a suit than turn up in torn and ripped jeans.
  • Remember the interview starts before you walk in the door. Be prepared to be on show the minute you apply for the job.
  • Make sure in your interview that you have good reasons for wanting the job. Being vague or sketchy is not what employers want to hear. Do practice interview questions at home to build your confidence.
  • If you are applying for a job, make sure you have an appropriate voicemail message on your phone. If an employer cannot contact you, then you may miss out.
  • Be conscience of your personal hygiene. Ensure you don’t smell of strong odors – eg cigarette smoke, body odor, strong cologne/perfume etc.
  • Know who to ask for when you arrive for an interview.
  • Don't slouch, fold your arms or lean on the table during an interview.
  • Research the employer. Employers love to know that you are interested in them.
