Getting an interview can be exciting and scary, so here are a few tips to help you at your next interview.
Review the typical interview questions employers ask and practice your answers. When answering any question, link it back to an example from your career or voluntary work.
Research the company and the interviewer and relay this information, where appropriate, within the interview. The interviewer will see that you have done your homework and that you are genuinely interested in the business.
Don’t wait until the last minute to sort your interview outfit and print extra copies of your CV (if this has been requested). Having everything ready for a last-minute interview reduces interview stress.
Be early for your interview as it shows the interviewer and the company you are punctual. If you have to drive to the interview, it is better to leave too much time than arrive late.
Try to stay calm at the interview and maintain eye contact with the person asking the questions.
