    Interview advice?

    Hi, i have an interview today for a job with a similar role to mine, but it is in a business and pays much better. I was wondering if anyone could give me a few hints about interview technique, what to say etc?
    Thank you

    Make sure you've done your research on the company/organisation in question. And also have plenty of questions to ask- best written down. It show's your keen and interested.

    Other than that, just be yourself.

    Good luck!

    Smile!
    Take in a copy of your CV and some printed out stuff about the company, as well as a few notes you have made. When they ask you if you have any questions - don't ask too many but make sure that the couple you ask are relevant and sensible - eg: what are the training opportunities? DON'T bore them with question after question!
    If you can't think of any questions, look down at your notes, run your finger down the list, look up, smile and say 'No, I think you have covered everything'. It really makes a difference. You've got to play the game!
