Smile, keep eye contact, do not try and be funny. Try and talk to a recruiter beforehand, ask them if they have any advice. The PO did when I went for my interview; it was a great help in calming my nerves.

Good luck :thumright:

Have you heard of buckfast? Its a tonic wine, very weak but very sweet. Knock back the bottle in one and you'll be fine, it gives you a energy buzz. Good luck for tomorrow!!!!

Have another browse through the Interview thread this evening and make a brief note - just a couple of sentences - of what you could say in reply to each question. You can refresh your memory by reading your notes on the way to the interview. Here you go:

Get your clothes and bag ready this evening and don't stay up too late. Have a good breakfast.

Think positively and imagine yourself speaking to your CA in a confident and relaxed way; you'll be fine.

Whatever modicum of credibility Buckfast had as a genuine tonic was destroyed the second all scum-kind adopted it as their national drink.

S'not all bad though, we save a lot on street signs in glasgow as there's always guaranteed to be one at every corner so the council just sharpie the street name on the label :lol:

When talking or replying to a question - cough and try and work the word "prick" into your cough.

If he looks offended or looks at you in shock give him a wink and continue talking about whatever you were talking about.

This shows creativity, bravery and intuition.
