It’s always a nice feeling when you’re invited to an interview with a prospective employer. In most cases, it means they liked your cover letter and your CV, so if you can impress them in the interview, then the job could well be yours. To make sure you don’t fluff your lines, follow our advice below:

Listen Carefully to the Questions

No matter how nervous you are on the day, the most important thing is to remember to listen. Every time an interviewer asks a question you have the opportunity to impress them, so listen and think about your response first, rather than panicking and rushing in with an unimpressive answer.

Show Interest

You have to show you’re interested in their business and the role itself, and by asking questions and creating a more casual dialogue, you can make a positive impression on the interviewer.

Make Eye Contact

Eye contact can show you’re confident in your abilities, and answering a question correctly is one thing, but eye contact can show you truly believe in your skills, and it will give the interviewer more confidence in you.

Tell them your Experiences

An interview is the perfect opportunity to use real life experiences to make your case. Before an interview make notes on your experiences, such as when you solved a problem or achieved something noteworthy.
