Cheer up!

It is a difficult time, but discussing the woes of the economy and the misery of Britain is going to kick your interview off with a glum start. Try to avoid starting off the meeting with any pre amble about gloom and doom.

If you get asked:

“How are you?”

“I am fantastic and looking forward to sitting down and talking about this role.”

It would probably be preferable to:

“Well I am OK, considering the circumstances and the weather and the cold and the rain and the economy and the NHS and the crime statistics”

You are selling yourself so start with being positive!
