Re: Oooopppppppps

For a start I would suggest a turban and funny accent for the interview (a prayer mat might be a bit over the top).

And I’m sure there must be an ‘Export for Dummies’ book around somewhere.

Good luck for the interview – don’t forget to tell us how you get on .. could be a TV series in this

Re: Oooopppppppps

Maybe it would be better to get more info on the company which may give you more clues as to what is expected.

Re: Oooopppppppps

Emma, they will have called you for an interview based on what you have told them so far, what did you tell them, because they will no doubt ask questions on it. as Juco says research the company, be prepared to ask questions about them, interviews are not a one way street

and Good Luck

Re: Oooopppppppps

Been there, done that - but difficult to offer any constructive advice without seeing the ad you replied to or knowing anything of your background or commercial experience.

Is this a clerical job or a field position, have they identified export markets and the suitability of their products for these markets etc etc… ?

Re: Oooopppppppps

Well as long as you were honest in your application I can not see a problem.
Obviously they were impressed by you to offer an interview and experience doesn't seem to be part of the criteria so I would imagine full training would be given.
Don't worry
