Copies of your Resume: that the interviewer can keep. Even if you have submitted an application online you should still bring hard copies of your Resume with you to the interview. You may need more than one copy depending on how people are on the interview panel.
Responses to interviewer questions: Prepare for your interview, anticipate the type of questions you may be asked and practise your answers for each one. Compile some examples of your past experience in various scenarios that relate to the role, you will then be able to recall them easily during the interview.
Your Research: At the end of each interview you are usually asked if you have any questions. If you have researched the company you will most likely have one or two questions that you would like answered. Look at the company website and any recent media to gain insights and prepare relevant questions to ask.
A positive attitude: As the saying goes ‘you will never get a second chance to make a good first impression’. Make sure you are well rested, dressed appropriately (we recommend to err on the conservative side) and feel prepared. You will then bring with you a positive frame of mind and will be ready to sell yourself.
References: Details of at least 2 professional referees may be asked for in an interview, include their full contact details and note their relationship to you (ie. former manager etc). Current referees are best and it’s important to contact your referees beforehand to advise them you are interviewing for a new role.
Work Examples & feedback: It is always good to have copies of any specific work samples and/or good feedback on your previous work performance with you, ( reports, cards or emails received from customers) that will enhance your suitability for the role.
