If you have applied for a job and be selected for an interview, then this is your chance to shine. You may only get one interview so it is vital that you should the interviewer what you are capable of and why they should hire you. With jobs still in high competition some employers will look for even the smallest reason to discount you from a long list of candidates, something which you don’t want to happen.

The first few minutes of an interview are crucial and can often be make or break. The first impressions you make are important and will last long after the interview has finished. The first point to consider is what you will wear. Everyone should dress appropriately for an interview. Even if you are applying for a job in which you will be wearing a uniform or that you will be able to dress down you should still attend an interview in smart clothing. You may not need to wear a full suit (unless this is the normal attire for the job) but you should at least wear a shirt / trousers or smart dress or skirt. Make sure that you offer a hand shake when you walk in to the room and smile. A smile can ease the tension in a room and make the whole interview process more relaxing.
