Thus, if your application was successful and now you are to face the panel for the interview here are some helpful tips that might guarantee  you the job after an interview:

2. Know yourself: determine what skills you’re marketing and to whom. This will show the recruiter you know yourself and have clear goals / objectives which are both highly desirable attributes.

3. Know your potential employer: Find out as much as you can about the company you go in for the interview, your knowledge, their ways and procedures will determine an interest in working for them.
