    • 1. How to impress an interviewer
    • 2. You’ve landed the interview – congratulations! But don’t relax just yet – you still need to impress the interviewer to land that dream role. So how do you do it?
    • 3. 1. Check your watch Being on time for an interview is expected, it shows that you respect your interviewer’s time and that you appreciate the opportunity. Arriving early is even better. It gives you a few extra minutes to take a breath, calm those nerves and get comfortable in the new environment.
    • 4. 2. Dress to impress Dressing the part will not only impress the interviewer, it will give you confidence. Don’t forget that the small stuff – clean fingernails, polished shoes and tidy hair. And remember all the senses. Use perfume and aftershave sparingly and if you smoke try to avoid it for a few hours prior to the interview.
    • 5. 3. Say their name Use the interviewer’s name when you greet them and again at the end when you thank them for the interview. It personalises the meeting.
    • 6. 4. What you do is as important as what you say Make a good impression with open and positive body language by smiling and making eye contact.
    • 7. 5. Show don’t tell Be prepared for any question by having a variety of examples of your skills and achievements.
    • 8. 6. Don’t leave it at goodbye. Follow up after the interview with a note, call or email to thank the interviewer for meeting with you. Use this as an opportunity to provide them any further information that demonstrates why you’re the best candidate for the job.
