Best Answer 6 years ago

Ill make an answer because it may help others:

1. Make sure you look conventional and are clean and tidy.

2. make sure you have or can give a good impression you have the skills necessary

3. Write a good honest CV stick to a conventional format there are plenty of examples on the web.

4. Go in confidently, maintain eye contact - practice a good firm but not crushing hand shake and try not to have sweaty palms.

It is said that people make their decision in the first few seconds of meeting you so make them count.

Answer questions succinctly but be complete. If you don't know say so don't waffle

If you don't understand the question ask.

At the and thank them for their time and interest - Remember even if your second on the list - If your second on enough lists eventual;ly someone will drop out and make you first..

Plus, do your homework.

Find out about the company's history, financial status, future plans. Check their website, take a good look at mugshots, just in case you run into them during the interview.

30 months for me :)

it was a lateral move though, so I think the application was a bit easier for me. (staying within my field)

before that was at least 55 months.

So it is a case of ;
  • an improved title,
  • more responsibility,
  • more work and
  • the same compensation

laterally speaking ? :)
