The interview however, is the clincherFirst things first*Research the company thoroughly. Get your facts*Hone your language and communication skills* Check your CV one last time to see if it's updated* Practice before a mirror.

Make a list of probable questions and practice answering themOn the D-day*Dress well. Be conservative*Take more than one copy of your resume*Get the place, time and person right! Check out the venue the day before!* Make a head-start, arrive at least ten to fifteen minutes early so that you have enough time to gather your thoughts before the interview begins* Be courteous to everyone* Wait till you are asked to take a seat before you sit!* Stay attentive and alert. Never slouch* Take your time answering questions* Talk in a firm and confident, yet polite tone.
