One of the most stressful situations in life is getting to an interview. On questionnaire surveys conducted on people assessing their psychological conditioning, interviews come up as one of the scariest experiences in life along with examinations. Interviews are a time where your general presentability has an impact on the outcome of the future. In an examination the paper would not be assessing what you are wearing and talking about so it depends solely on your intellect. In an interview your intellect, conduct, manners and unconscious habits, public speaking skills and all will be assessed.
Read before you go
One of the main things to have in your head when you reach the building of the interview is your knowledge. Keep repeating things about their company, services and products, recent news that had an impact and also the reason you want to work there. All of these answers should be crisp and to point. Interviewers do not have a lot of time on their hands and if you beat around the bush they will cut off your name. Read job descriptions for your position and have an idea of what it entails and how you can fulfill the duties. When they are asking about your qualifications and experiences, then relate these duties and responsibilities to your own past experiences.
The unwritten rule for dressing for an interview is to go as if going for a funeral. You need to be in black and white (or some sort of grey) and be clean. Send your suit to the dry cleaners and be prepared well ahead. Strong cologne and perfume are of the context so just use deodorant and nothing else if you can help it. Be clean shaven and do not use aftershave. When putting on makeup refrain from doing heavy eyeliner and mascara and shocking lipstick.
Simple browns and beige are the best. Your dress shoes should be dusted and polished and make sure that the clothes are ironed after you get it from the dry cleaners Richmond, and not wrinkled when you get there. Brush your teeth and have a mint before you go in.
In an interview (anywhere in the world and at any time), they will ask you why you think you are qualified for the job. This is not the time to be a narcissist or a timid mouse. You need to be able to answer concisely about you experiences and education and training you have gone through without sounding too much like a parrot. Try to add in something personal like how your teachers and counselors helped you during your thesis and how thankful you are to them. When you are narrating your skills make sure you are doing so in a neutral manner.
