Austria: Interview Conduct

by Goinglobal

Arrive on time or a few minutes early for the interview. If you are delayed for any reason, call ahead and inform the company immediately.

Dress formally and appropriately for the applied position. In general, men should wear a suit and tie, and women should wear a suit or dress. Whatever the clothes, men and women should appear well groomed and professional.
People you meet when entering the building or office or while waiting may also be included in the decision-making process. Make sure to be friendly and proper with everyone you meet.
Be careful to address the interviewer with their academic title; if you use the wrong title or no title at all, it can mean the end of the interview. Some interviewers, however, might offer to be addressed without their academic titles.
Austrian employers seek individuals who are self-assured, open and polite. Maintain eye contact with the interviewer and do not appear submissive. Please refer to this guide’s Cultural Advice section for additional information regarding items such as appropriate topics of conversation, greetings and personal space.
