Be polite and greet everyone you meet, including people you meet in at reception.
It’s tempting to ramble on about your successes in a former job, but do not focus on the specifics of a past role to the point where it dominates the conversation.
Asking questions indicates your interest in the company, especially when your questions demonstrate knowledge of the industry sector and the company. 10 good questions to ask are:
01. What attributes does someone need to have in order to be really successful in this position?
02. Do you expect the main responsibilities for this position to change in the next six months to a year?
03. Are there opportunities for advancement or professional development?
04. What are the performance expectations of this position over the first 12 months?
05. What metrics or goals will my performance be evaluated against?
06. What are the current goals that the company is focused on, and how does this team work to support hitting those goals?
07. Can you tell me about the team I’ll be working with?
08. How would you describe the work environment here—is the work typically collaborative or more independent?
09. What are the next steps in the interview process?
10. When can I expect to hear back from you?
