Interview Tips

Preparing for that interview? Always come prepared! Here are a few tips on ensuring that you have a successful one.

  • Come a little before the appointed time (about 5 to 10 minutes in advance).

  • Just before entering the office use breath mints to freshen your breath. If you are chewing gum on the way, get rid of it before you enter the interview venue.

  • Look the interviewers in the eye and hold a firm handshake.

  • Dress to impress but be sure you are comfortable in your clothes. This will boost your confidence as you will look and feel great.

  • Test on your outfit in advance. Have them ready the night before the interview so you avoid missing anything in a rush.

How to Dress for an Interview

Make a great first impression!

Whatever the position, remember that you must dress to impress. Wearing a suit or business attire is the best way to dress for any interview. Remember you can wear anything you want after you have landed the job but not when you are still just applying for it!

Dressing Tips for Men

Wear dark business suits, coordinated tie and shirt. Polish your shoes! A briefcase or portfolio would also help you nail that 'serious businessman' look which is the norm for interviews. Make sure your hair looks neatly groomed. No flashy jewellery or piercings! In most cases, the boring, conservative look works.

Dressing Tips for Women

Wear a coordinated business suit with dark colours. If you are wearing a skirt, be sure they are long enough so that they don't make you feel uncomfortable when you sit. Usually something a few inches below the knees especially in this culture, the longer skirts would be preferable. If you are wearing jewellery, tone them down to conservative and not flambouyant (for example, do not wear dangling earrings). Sensible closed shoes (not sandals or peep-toes) with about 1.5 - 2 inches heels are advisable. Keep you hair in place and be sure to be well-groomed with light make-up only.
