Interview Etiquette

Interview Etiquette

Present a Positive Personal Image

When you have been invited for an interview with a reputable company, it is important to keep in mind that your actions will determine how your potential employer will view you as an employee - so your job interview etiquette (or lack of it), won’t go unnoticed.

Communication & Punctuality

Show up on time but don’t arrive too early. If you are running late for whatever reason, call them and let them know so they aren’t sitting there waiting for you. Also, when you do arrive, apologise for being late. If you have been offered another job and you don’t want to attend the interview - for whatever reason - you should still call or email and let them know. If your situation changes later on down the track and you find yourself looking for work again these employers will remember you from the previous encounter.

Preperation is KEY

Every interviewer is going to ask some sort of questions that do require examples so if you can prepare beforehand and try to pre-empt the types of questions they make ask you it will avoid those situations of you sitting and umming about a particular situation to relate to. Another way to be prepared is to think of some questions you have about the job or the company and if they haven’t been answered during the interview you can ask at the end.

Lastly, stay focused and remain engaging!
