• Do plan to arrive on time or a few minutes early.  Late arrival for a job interview is inexcusable.
  • If the employer presents you with an application form to complete, fill it in neatly and completely.
  • Do not relax and rely on your application form to do the selling for you.  Most employers will want you to speak for yourself.
  • Do greet the employer by their surname (Mr or Mrs ...). Give the appearance of energy as you walk in and smile! Shake their hand firmly and be genuinely glad to meet the employer.
  • Do wait until you are offered a chair before sitting. Sit upright in your chair whilst looking alert and interested at all times. Be a good listener as well as a good talker.
  • Do not chew gum.
  • Do look a prospective employer in the eye while you talk to them.
  • Do follow the employer’s leads, but try to get the employer to describe the position.
  • Do not answer questions with a simple "yes" or "no". Explain wherever possible all of those things about yourself which relate to (background, skills and accomplishments) the position in a positive manner.
