Keep it brief
"Don't tell me you're a wonderful person to get on with, or
about your hobbies. I'm just interested in how you qualified and
how long you've stayed at each job."
Keep your CV factual
"Some of the funniest CVs I've read are from people who left my

"It's reasonable to find out where the company's going and where
you will slot in. What do they see your goals being, apart from the
money they'll pay you?"
Dress to impress
