BIG DAY 2mo...INTERVIEW

Right then all, tomo is big day for me, got 2nd interview for job i really want. Is a graduate managment position with very respectable business. I passed the initial telephone interview and have a branch visit tomorrow morning. If pass 2nd part go to final stage and then fingers crossed will be accepted on the scheme. So my question is, am i missing anythin out in my preparation for tomo.

1) Be smart, clean shaven, suit.
2) Be confident but not over, eye contact when shake hands. Be very interested in what the companty does, what it has to to offer and what i have to offer.
3) Listen to all questions and give sensible answers that demonstrate skills i hold, achievments through my career and relate to the company.
4) Learn about the company so can demonstrate knowledge of operations, history etc.
5) Devise some questions to ask at the end of interview

Thats my basic plan? Any thoughts or pointers if i need to be doing something else?

Thanks all

    If i can give you a pice of advice.
    Dont take the interview TO SERIOUSE. Just be yourself! If you try to hard you wont come across the way you want to.
    Be you!!!

    Id go opposite that.

    Take each stage very seriously. From telephone to 2nd interview, from assesment centre to final interview normally given by a panel.

    Each step is crucial.

    Good luck buddy, out of interest what company is it and how did you find them? Im looking for a similar position myself in a business services/operations role.

    You need a middle ground mate. Professionalism with a mix of your own personality! People who dedicate too much to one or the other rarely get the jobs! I usually make it clear that im dedicated, self driven, capable but also have a sense of humour and dont take everything in life seriously. Its worked everytime so far. No employer wants a stick in the mud, or somebody who takes themselves too seriously (many solicitor firm partners i speak to say this is why they do not like to recruit from Cambridge or Oxford graduates!), but neither do they want somebody who is clearly too laid back.
    Its a tough middle ground to display in an interview, but as far as my experience goes, its quite effective if you can manage it.

    " Do not tell me to play the hand i've been dealt. To hell with the cards and damn the dealer! Any man can achieve anything if he works hard enough, and thats the truth of it. Go at it with all that you are, and it is within your reach"
