  • First impressions count, be professional.
  • Business dress is appropriate.
  • Greet the interviewers in a friendly and confident manner.
  • Think of the interview as an opportunity for dialogue between you and the panel to exchange information.
  • If there are any job functions that you are unsure of, write these down as you could ask for further clarification after your interview.
  • Be prepared to supply a list of professional references to the interview panel.
  • At the closing of the interview, if not mentioned, ask about timelines for decision in regard to the position.
