Research about the client

Research the company thoroughly: their website, recent articles on the company, their products/services, culture, mission statement, and values. Familiarise yourself with the job description, but note that sometimes we don’t have too much information to pass onto you.

Double check the date, time and location of the interview and be familiar with the name and title of the interviewer. Plan to arrive 10 – 15 minutes before the scheduled time. Familiarise yourself with the journey to the location and where to park to ensure you arrive in plenty of time. If you are considering taking Public Transport on the day, anticipate delays, especially n unknown routes. Contact your interviewer or account manager swiftly if you are unavoidably delayed on the day.
