    Dont swear, fart or pick your nose....

    Maintain eye contact...but not in a scary 'I am going to find you and kill you' way

    Go smart...but make sure you feel comfortable in whatever you wear



    Go naked

    smile and big urself up alot, tell a few porkies which they wont b able to prove ur lying, get eye contact, if u have big cleavage wear something smart but provocative.....maybe drop a pen a few times and bend over infront of the man on the panel.........be urself, if u dont get the job, accuse them of being racist, sexist....just use a word u like and then add "ist" to it!

    good luck!

    ull b fine! (because im not applying for the job)

    x

    btw if its a job in a bank, prob best not to mention ur gambling addiction

    wow macdonalds take there interviews seriously these days.

    Wow, 3 hours! sounds like prob a written test, Group work ( group interaction evaluation ) then possibly an individual interview!

    What kind of job is it? Office? Airline?

    Don't fold your arms, shows your hiding something or lying about yourself.

    Keep the conversation flowing but don't milk it. They wanna see what you can offer and not what they can coax out of you!

    Or I could just be talking out of my ****!

    I really need this job, but dont wanna come across as desperate.
    Have lost alot of contracts in my current job and am down to working half weeks.

    Have done interviews before - both taken and given, but this is a 3 to 1 and coz i really want it i don't wanna f*** it up.

    Its pink, but only streaked at the front - the rest is black. Anyhow, that shouldn't matter. It doesn't look scary or anything, and doesnt make a difference to my personality or qualifications.

    Actually, i did consider being "normal looking" for my job searching - but decided people should take me as i am, or not at all.

    Job is phone based anyhow, so doesnt really matter how i look :whistling:

    Just smile, it makes such a difference to interview someone if they are nice!

    Find out something about the company that will let them know you are well informed or have done some research! like a recent takeover or new products, clients etc....

    Dont make the interview hard work for them,

    Try to answer their questions being positive and refer your answers to your past experiences:

    Q :" How would you deal with a difficult client?"

    A : "Well, recently i was working at XXXXXXXX and a situation occured where the client was unhappy because of XXXXXXX, I was in a position where i could help keep the client on board and did xxxxxxxxxxxxx, this resolved the situation well. Etc etc, "
