Use this checklist to ensure you have the best chance at success

☐ Research
Have you researched the employer and role thoroughly? See if you can find out exactly what to expect of the day as well.

☐ Location and Time
Check the time and location carefully - it may not be at the employer’s main building. Plan your route in advance, allowing extra time for delays.

☐ Appropriate dress
Dress smartly as you might for a job interview. Ensure you have read instructions, as some employers will ask you to bring a change of clothes for physical exercises.

☐ Materials
Check all instructions to ensure you have everything asked of you such as presentation materials. If there is an interview component, you may wish to bring your CV.

☐ Luggage
If you have travelled overnight, ensure you have a plan regarding your luggage. If you need to have it with you, check with the employer if you can store it somewhere.

☐ Body language
Practice your body language including a firm introductory handshake. Practice sitting without fidgeting if it is an issue for you. Be sure you know how to appear open and confident.
