Career tip: How to beat off competition and succeed at interview

Five top tips to help you beat off competition and succeed at interview

  • Do your research - have good knowledge of the job and what is required, research the company structure, current company news, competitors and the people interviewing you
  • Prepare - prepare your questions prior to the interview, make sure you plan your journey and give yourself enough time to get there and take two copies of your CV and a note pad and pen with you
  • Dress to impress - dress appropriately and look smart in business wear, hair should be clean and tidy, shoes cleaned and minimal make up and jewellery
  • Leave the interview well - smile and act as if it has been a good interview and ensure you shake everyone's hand and say thank you
  • Get professional help - a career coach can help you to prepare for your interview and provide practical 1-1 interview training
