(Women)
CLOTHING:
make sure you wear a professional and clean freshly
pressed shirt or blouse without a deep neckline. If you wear a
skirt, be sure that the skirt is no shorter than two inches
above the knee. Don’t forget to put on tights or stockings
under your skirt.
COLORS:
if you’re going for an interview with a very corporate
company, more muted tones would be better suited to the
formal environment. Black and dark blue are the ideal
business colors, grey or brown are also good options. Pair
this with a blouse or shirt in white or pastel colors. But don’t
SHOES:
open shoes like flip-flops or sandals are a no-go for a job
interview. Footwear should be either closed toe pumps with a subtle
heel or closed toe black high heels.
JEWELRY:
stay away from too much jewelry such as large necklaces and
bangles, as too much clanging can cause unnecessary distraction. Be
sure to only wear subtle earrings. Your watch should be slim and just
wear a wedding band or no rings at all.

don’t overdo the make-up, keep it conservative and natural looking
and just

General Tips for
Preparing for an
Interview
BEFORE THE INTERVIEW
During your prep work, you should use the employer’s
posted job description as a guide. The job description is a list of
the qualifications, qualities and background the employer is
looking for in an ideal candidate. The more you can align
yourself with these details, the more the employer will be able to
see that you are qualified. The job description may also give you
the ideas about questions the employer may ask throughout the
interview.
Have the right mind set. Remember that the primary goal
of the interviewer is to learn whether you have the skills,
training, experience and interest necessary to fulfil the
requirements of the position.
Research
Gather information about the company you
are applying to so you can adjust your
responses to fit that company. Researching
the company and role as much as possible will
give you an edge over the competition. Not
only that, but fully preparing for an interview
will help you remain calm so that you can be
at your best.
Know The Typical Questions Asked:
While you won’t be able to predict every question you’ll be asked in
an interview, there are a few common questions you can plan answers for.
You might also consider developing an elevator pitch that quickly
describes who you are, what you do and what you want.
There are some jobs that may involve a test or evaluation during the
interview process.
For example, if you are interviewing for a computer programming,
development or analytics role, you might also be asked to write or
evaluate lines of code. It might be helpful to consult with colleagues in the
industry for examples of tests they’ve been given to prepare.
General types interview Questions
1. Getting-to-know you questions
Example: Tell me about yourself. What was your
course and major in college and why did you choose it?
This is often the first of many interview questions,
designed to ‘warm up’ the candidate. Many candidates
choose to respond with an overview of their work and
employment history. It’s important to ensure your
answer is aligned with the job description and
advertisement, to demonstrate how you can add value
to the company and role at hand
2. Questions about qualifications
Example: What specific qualifications do you have for
this job? Can you talk about your previous work
experience?
Start with your skills. Identify a skill that you exceed
in and talk about how you are looking for a role that will
utilise and further develop that skill. You should also
explain your motivations and how this role can help you
achieve your long-term goals. Always ensure that your
answer is relevant to the company and the role in
question.
3. Forward-looking questions
Example: Where do you see yourself five years from
now? Do you plan to continue your education?
Your employer wants to see how driven and goal-
oriented you are. They also want to check that your
expectations are realistic. In your answer, demonstrate
your awareness of industry trends and ability to be
flexible.
4. Tough questions
Example: What are your greatest weaknesses? If there’s
only thing you would like to change about your personality,
what is this?
Take the time to craft an answer that isn’t a cliché. Nothing
makes a manager cringe more than the answer: “I’m a
perfectionist.” This is your opportunity to demonstrate your
own self-awareness and desire for personal development.
Try to identify something that isn’t critical to the role, and
frame your answer in the positive
5. Questions about money
Example: What kind of salary do you expect?
● Do your research beforehand. Our Salary
Guide can give you the latest salary trends
and benchmarks. If you come prepared with
reasonable salary expectations, you and your
employer will know straight away if you are
going to feel sufficiently compensated in the
During the Interview
●Arrive early ( 15 -30 mins before the interview) and present
yourself well.
●Smile, make frequent eye contact and control your body
movements.
●Be clear.
●Wait for the interviewer to officially signal the end of the
interview.
Know What Questions Are Illegal
According to the Business Insider
Australia, employers cannot ask about your
relationship status, disabilities, how much
alcohol you drink, whether you have ever
been arrested and your religious
preference.
Prepare your own questions
The most important part of preparing for an
interview is practice. Knowing what job
interview questions you might be asked is
essential – that way, you can craft your
answers well in advance, and feel confident in
your responses when the pressure is on.
(PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE)
How to Read Body
Language in an
Interview
HEAD, FACE AND EYES
In an interview – particularly video interviews – focus on the head, face
and eyes for important cues as to how the interviewer feels.
What to do: Tilt your head slightly when the hiring manager is speaking and maintain
eye contact. However, keep it looking natural and don’t stare. It’s ok to look away
occasionally,for example, if you need to refer
to your notes or write something
down. Smile, smile, smile. Before
you walk into the interview, put
yourself in a positive frame of
mind by thinking about how good
you’ll feel if you get the job. That
positivity will shine through in a
genuine way, and you will make a
great entrance.
ARMS AND HANDS
Many people ‘talk with their hands’, so this is an easy
and obvious way to attune to how the hiring manager is
feeling.
What to do: Shake hands. At the start and end of the
interview, give a firm (but not
clenching) handshake, smile,
and look your interviewer in
the eye. You will come across as warm and confident
and make a lasting
impression.
POSTURE
Is a subtle indicator of how someone feels, but it’s a
critical piece of the body language puzzle.
What to do: Lean in. Position your torso so that it is
leaning in slightly towards the interviewer. This will make you
appear interested in the content of the interview and the role
itself. Monkey see, monkey do.
Mirroring the interviewer’s
body posture in a subtle way
indicates an alignment of
views, as well as comfort and
connection.
LEGS AND FEET
They might be difficult to see, but the legs and feet
are, surprisingly, a good indicator of how someone is
feeling towards you.
What to do: Sit comfortably, with a straight back and
both feet pointed towards the interviewer. Even if you
are doing a phone interview or a video interview and
your lower half can’t be seen; if you act as you would
in an inperson interview, you will come across as
enthusiastic.
Quick Pointer:
Sit straight and tight in your chair
Have and maintain a passive eye
contact
Occasionally use hand gesture to
express yourself
Always wear a sincere smile
Nod your head as you’re listening

  • 19. General Tips for Preparing for an Interview
  • 20. BEFORE THE INTERVIEW During your prep work, you should use the employer’s posted job description as a guide. The job description is a list of the qualifications, qualities and background the employer is looking for in an ideal candidate. The more you can align yourself with these details, the more the employer will be able to see that you are qualified. The job description may also give you the ideas about questions the employer may ask throughout the interview. Have the right mind set. Remember that the primary goal of the interviewer is to learn whether you have the skills, training, experience and interest necessary to fulfil the requirements of the position.

  • 22. Know The Typical Questions Asked: While you won’t be able to predict every question you’ll be asked in an interview, there are a few common questions you can plan answers for. You might also consider developing an elevator pitch that quickly describes who you are, what you do and what you want. There are some jobs that may involve a test or evaluation during the interview process. For example, if you are interviewing for a computer programming, development or analytics role, you might also be asked to write or evaluate lines of code. It might be helpful to consult with colleagues in the industry for examples of tests they’ve been given to prepare.
  • 23. General types interview Questions 1. Getting-to-know you questions Example: Tell me about yourself. What was your course and major in college and why did you choose it?

It’s important to ensure your answer is aligned with the job description and advertisement, to demonstrate how you can add value to the company and role at hand
  • 24. 2. Questions about qualifications Example: What specific qualifications do you have for this job? Can you talk about your previous work experience? Start with your skills. Identify a skill that you exceed in and talk about how you are looking for a role that will utilise and further develop that skill. You should also explain your motivations and how this role can help you achieve your long-term goals. Always ensure that your answer is relevant to the company and the role in question.
  • 25. 3. Forward-looking questions Example: Where do you see yourself five years from now? Do you plan to continue your education? Your employer wants to see how driven and goal- oriented you are. They also want to check that your expectations are realistic. In your answer, demonstrate your awareness of industry trends and ability to be flexible.
  • 26. 4. Tough questions Example: What are your greatest weaknesses? If there’s only thing you would like to change about your personality, what is this? Take the time to craft an answer that isn’t a cliché.

  • 31. How to Read Body Language in an Interview
  • 32. HEAD, FACE AND EYES In an interview – particularly video interviews – focus on the head, face and eyes for important cues as to how the interviewer feels. What to do: Tilt your head slightly when the hiring manager is speaking and maintain eye contact. However, keep it looking natural and don’t stare. It’s ok to look away occasionally,for example, if you need to refer to your notes or write something down. Smile, smile, smile. Before you walk into the interview, put yourself in a positive frame of mind by thinking about how good you’ll feel if you get the job. That positivity will shine through in a genuine way, and you will make a great entrance.
  • 33. ARMS AND HANDS Many people ‘talk with their hands’, so this is an easy and obvious way to attune to how the hiring manager is feeling. What to do: Shake hands. At the start and end of the interview, give a firm (but not clenching) handshake, smile, and look your interviewer in the eye. You will come across as warm and confident and make a lasting impression.
  • 34. POSTURE Is a subtle indicator of how someone feels, but it’s a critical piece of the body language puzzle. What to do: Lean in. Position your torso so that it is leaning in slightly towards the interviewer. This will make you appear interested in the content of the interview and the role itself. Monkey see, monkey do. Mirroring the interviewer’s body posture in a subtle way indicates an alignment of views, as well as comfort and connection.
  • 35. LEGS AND FEET They might be difficult to see, but the legs and feet are, surprisingly, a good indicator of how someone is feeling towards you. What to do: Sit comfortably, with a straight back and both feet pointed towards the interviewer. Even if you are doing a phone interview or a video interview and your lower half can’t be seen; if you act as you would in an inperson interview, you will come across as enthusiastic.
  • 36. Quick Pointer: Sit straight and tight in your chair Have and maintain a passive eye contact Occasionally use hand gesture to express yourself Always wear a sincere smile Nod your head as you’re listening
