Five things not to do in an important first interview….

  • Try to pre-negotiate your salary and benefits package.
  • Over emphasise how good you are.
  • Criticise your current employer.
  • Attend without any preparation or research.
  • State that you are very happy where you are and don’t need to move.

Remember – all you need to do is get a second interview at this stage – not the job itself.  Good luck with the meetings!
