Description:

You've completed the work, planned your job search, handed in applications and already you are counting the days until the big interview.

At this point, put yourself in the job interviewers' shoes. They've got a great CV as well as covering letter in front of them coming from a postgraduate having skills aplenty. They've already acknowledged their key transferable skills to you therefore you've a good feeling that you could be the best person for their business.

However the job interview may be the only chance that the interviewer will have to get to understand or know potential candidates and check if they are able to back up their specific competencies on paper and deliver the results, as you promised when making a job application through job search sites.

As a postgraduate job seeker you must work hard in order to make a good first impression. A large number of business employers worry that postgraduates may be a bit too academic and not have enough indvidual capabilities as well as people skills which they need to be able to do the job within a company. Making that good first impression is going to get down to confidence, body language as well as overall appearance, but above all else it means you need to be very well prepared and be familiar with the company as well as you can.

Being well prepared as well as at ease will be apparent in your demeanour at the time. You may wish to try the following to help you perform at your very best and be offered london jobs.

1.Have a mock job interview. You could try this with a friend but you can also try to ask your supervisor to help you with this. Deal with some standard questions including "why are you applying", "why are you suitable for this place" etc.

2. Check, double check and even triple check the time and location. Then simply check, double check not to mention triple check your travel arrangements and after that have a very good backup strategy on hand just in case.

3.Be sure you dress nicely. Get your interview shirt or dress ready one day before in order to avoid last minute stress and panic.

4. Don't have loads of stuff with you - travel as light as possible.

5. If you have to carry files with you, including personal references and certificates, have them ready in a decent file at least one day ahead of the job interview but try for one week. If you have lost something it could take quite some time to order a replacement.

6. Go to the loo before the job interview.

Very much like preparing for a viva, sit down with your resume along with covering letter beforehand and take notes on yourself. This will be the only information the hiring managers have analyzed hence make sure that you remember the things you had said inside and out and can also back it up with additional examples so that you may indicate depth.

One of the most common queries is going to be "tell me about yourself". Plan a really good respond to to this question that doesn't involve a list of achievements (most of these are already in your curriculum vitae) or simply way too much personal details. Be professional and focus on the features that fit with the company culture including hard-working, organised and excellent communicator.
