Go over your qualifications for the position
Read over your resume
Research where the company is so you are not late to the interview
Be organised – get there with plenty of time to spare
Sit down and prepare a list of possible questions you might be asked, and think up a range of answers to match
Know your strengths

Your appearance:

Make sure you are wearing a corporate suit and closed in shoes
Minimal jewellery
No heavy perfumes
Never chew gum or smoke just before an interview – this leaves a bad impression
Hair tied back, well groomed

In the interview:

Shake hands with the person interviewing you, smile and maintain eye contact
Sit up straight in the chair – body language makes up 90% of any communication
Maintain good body language; sit up tall in the interview, do not fold arms
If there is break in your resume between roles or anything you think could be of concern, please bring it up and address the issue (so you don't leave any unaddressed possible negativity)
Keep questions to the end of the interview and always ask permission to ask questions before jumping in
Smile – people employ friendly people
Try and relax. answer each question as succinctly as possible
When asked a question, think about your answer before replying don't feel unconfortable about pausing to think of a good answer
