    Dont forget to ask what staff discount you get, or what extra golf benefits are there.

    What?

    Good luck.
    Dress smartly, don't waffle, and be honest with your replies.
    Don't be afraid to ask awkward questions, never underestimate the people interviewing you.

    [PS Don't start by asking how much annual holiday you get]

    Re: Dream job interview - advice needed!

    Oddly enough I had an interview of sorts today which went quite well. A local firm are trying to "poach" me so I met the head guys down at the main office in Halifax for a natter.
    I just need to see what package they are offering now but it's a good opportunity for me to gain more experience with other machines.
    Sorry for the hijack and best of luck tomorrow mate 👍

    Do your research. Know the company you have the job interview with. A common question, and one I also use, is "tell me what you know about us. Sell the company to me."

    Make sure you have some decent questions to ask, and don't be frightened to ask them. A good candidate also interviews the company they are looking to join.

    If they ask 'where do you want to be in 5 years time?' don't say "in your seat!".
