    Here's what I can think of in the middle of a fairly busy morning at work! >>

    1. You must give them the impression that you are motivaited and WANT the job.
    2. Be honest about your skills and experience. DONT exaggerate too much.
    3. Be relaxed, look in the interviewer(s) in the eye.
    4. Wear a suit, shave and get a haircut.
    5. Firm handshake is a must.
    6. Know what you can about the company and the role.
    7. Go through your resume a couple of times so you can remember all that you have put down in it.

    I'll let the other chime in with other tips. Good luck!

    Hey guys, here is an update.

    Got a call back from the HR partner and she informed me I would be moving on to the next steps of the process:D. This is basically them running a background check and take a personality assessment. Once the results are in, she said she would be back in touch with me and let me know the outcomeicon_cheers.gif

    P.S. Also informed me the description of the job posting was not correct due to the company changing and evolving different positions. It was the same title but duties were a little different. I will post a little latericon_wink.gif
