Interview Skills Know the Interviewers Name

If you have an interview booked one very important thing to ensure is that you get the interviewers name correct.


When you are nervous it is often easy to forget someones name. Addressing someone and using their name shows that you are professional and that you have been listening. 

A tip is prior to the interview ask the organiser the name of the person conducting the interview. They usually are able to provide you with the names and their titles. Once you know the interviewers name write them at the top of your notes that you take into the interview. It is easy to open up your notes and see their names during the interview if you forget.
