Personal: First impressions count. Are you well groomed with tidy hair, shoes and clothing? Practice a good positive handshake, not too firm, not too weak.
Dress: Are you well dressed, in a way that follows conventions in this job sector? If in doubt, ask us about the client’s dress code.
Timing: Plan a reliable way of getting there which allows you to be a few minutes early (not too late or too early and probably not on time because this means late when you’ve been delayed in reception or walking around their buildings). Carry out a trial run if possible.
