Before coming to an interview, look for information about the company, check its website, social media pages.... in other words, don't be unprepared!

Take a printed copy of your up to date CV with you, preferably with another copy in English. Obviously, these days all companies usually have an on-line site where you can register to apply for jobs, but turning up with your CV and a customised cover letter shows your interested and well prepared. .

Remember: recruiters meet a lot of people: you will only have a few minutes to present yourself and capture their attention, so prepare what you are going to say that summarises your capabilities and demonstrates interest, passion and willingness, right from the start.  Above all, be yourself!

Appearances can be deceiving: choose your clothes and makeup carefully. You're not going to fashion week, but nor are you going to a wedding. Opt for the right compromise, that still represents you in a coherent way, and you definitely won't be boring!
