how many people will be there, look into your inerviewers eyes when answering questions and not only the person currently asking question. All the others will be watching you..

relax when there, take a deep breath and don't rush your answers.

most people make up their mind about a you almost right away. If you are feeling nervous and making a its obvious, apologise and just say im nervous.

listen to what other people say....you need to stand out but just dont look like a tit lol....there will prob be some kinda 'task' to do, so make sure you put your ideas in but listen to others and build on their ideas too

+1 When I got my job we had a group interview & I gave the interviewer alot of eye contact & after the interview she held me back & said I got the job because I was the only one who gave her full eye contact

remember they are looking for people who are confident,but not bossy-dont take over the conversation,listen to others viewpoints-dont hide in a corner and go to the opposite extreme-its a hard balance to achieve but its important.

One thing I always state about any interview, is that you must ask questions about the potential employer - it shows you have a genuine interest. Good luck.

Golden rule of group interview is never keep quit, they might give you topic and ask to discuss
or they might give you task to complete, in any any case you should speak up and express your opinion even its wrong., its just your opinion its doesn't matter..,

good luck:thumbsup:

no advice really but try an be yourself, lots of eye contact and if there is a group activity try and get involved from the start and listen to other peoples opinions but give some of your own

good luck with the interview

cheers mate

Just be confident, calm, take time to listen to what they asking and dont rush your answers. Look at each person whilst you answer not just the person who asks the question.
Ive had loads of group interviews and find it easier than being interviewed than 1 person
Good luck with the interview :thumbsup:

I managed to get 3 hours sleep, I feel so bad!

i find at group interviews sometimes people go off onto other subjects if this happens be the one to pipe up and say we are drifting off/ just to verify the question was........... it shows you are focused on the question in hand.

Always give your opinion and if you disagree with someone say so...not aggressively ..obivously, but say i take what you are saying on board but perhaps blah blah is a better idea then give your reasons to back it up.

Also try to be the one to clarify what you have discussed at the end , be the leader.

good luck hope you get the job:thumbsup:

nice mate, nice, will give you some rep in 24 hours when i can rep again :thumbsup:

no worries mate hope it all goes well

Do some research into the company (dunno what one it is however) rather than just thinking up something random...

Such as...'I understand that you are currently doing 'this' in the near future' - you know, something that will show you've looked into them somewhat.

How did the interview go?

hope it went well mate
