Interview Conduct

Local experts explain appropriate dress, greetings, interview situations to expect, potential room set-up, punctuality and level of formality in interviews. Below is a brief excerpt from this section:  

Interviews vary significantly from small, local, family businesses to international/global companies. Understand the difference and prepare accordingly.

Always be on time for an interview in Spain, although you should be prepared to wait for the interviewer for up to 30 minutes. An identification card might be required to enter the premises.

Dress should be formal or classic, although this might vary depending on the professional sector and company philosophy. Men’s business attire consists of a conservative but well-fitted suit, including a jacket and tie. Women generally wear stylishly tailored dresses or suits. Black or brown shoes for men and high-heeled shoes for women are preferred.

This is just a brief sample of the extensive information in the GoinGlobal Spain Career Guide, which is carefully researched and regularly updated by local career experts.
