    Hi, i've just got my first job interview at Vue cinema tomorrow, can anyone give me any tips and advice to make sure i get the job, i am very nervous and excited about this interview.

    About me:
    I currenly study public services at college studying the extended diploma which involves a lot of coursework so getting the job a vue cinema would be really great for me as their hours are very flexiable.

    Whenever I've gone for a job I tend to follow a set pattern. Always works for me.

    Dress Smart, calm down and be confident (but not arrogant... there's a fine line), and tailor yourself to what they want. I.e where do you see yourself in 5 years time? .. Well given the opportunity I would like to see myself progress through the company blah de blah

    Remember - Eye contact, Shake hands, and Mirror the interviewers signals. ie if their being really serious it's best you do too, if their having a laugh and are trying to make it a relaxed atmosphere then tailor what your saying to that.

    Good Luck!

    Practise open ended questions (what's been your best leadership experience, why do you want to work here, what do you think you can bring to us, etc.). They are a pain if you aren't expecting them.

    Dress smart: no jeans.
