Carlie Santoro, recruitment manager at Quest Professional, said the most important thing is to make a good first impression, and this can be achieved by dressing appropriately.
She added: "To create a good first impression, the candidate needs to be well presented, they need to arrive at least ten minutes before their interview, have done some research on the company and have a good understanding of what the role will entail."
Another wise move would be to have some questions in mind to ask the interviewer, which illustrates that the candidate has an interest in the company, Ms Santoro explained.
A further attractive trait in an interviewee is the willingness to "muck in", as attitude cannot be discounted as a basic skill, so candidates need to make it clear they are not afraid of hard work, the expert advised.
