Your performance in an interview depends, to a significant extent, on how well you prepare. Don't leave this until the last minute.
In the days leading up to the interview, focus your research on the:
Employer - You need to show that you understand the business beyond the basics.
It's a good idea to do at least one mock interview before the real thing. You can also write and practise answers to common interview questions with someone you trust.
Role - Read the job description again and, if you completed an application form, go over it to refresh your memory of how your skills and qualifications match the role you're applying for. It's vital that you can explain why you want the job, that you understand the role and, even more importantly, why the employer should choose you over other candidates.
Interview - Find out who will be interviewing you. The email inviting you to the interview may include this information. Use the 'About us' section of the company website to find out more about their professional interests and experience.This may help you to connect and creative a positive impression during the interview.
Questions - You should always ask questions as it shows how keen and interested you are.
What to take
Ensure you have everything you need, such as:
Pen and notebook
Your CV and interview invitation
Your academic certificates
What to wear to an interview
The key point to remember is that it's much better to be too smart than too casual.
Whatever you choose, make sure that your clothes are ironed and your shoes are clean.
4 ways to make a good impression
As you're preparing for the interview, think about ways you can show yourself in a positive light. Among the best techniques are:
Punctuality - Arriving late will increase your stress levels and give the employer a bad first impression, so do your best to arrive in good time.
Positivity and enthusiasm - be polite and professional with any staff you meet before or after the interview and, if you're feeling particularly nervous, remind yourself that the very worst thing that could happen is not getting the job. During the interview, respond to questions with positive statements, be enthusiastic about the job and avoid badmouthing your previous employers.
Body language - GIve a firm handshake to your interviewer(s) before and after the session. Once you're seated, sit naturally without slouching in your chair or leaning on the desk.
Throughout the interview, remember to smile frequently and retain eye contact.
Always answer questions with as much information as possible and express your previous techniques and skills you have done in the past. It's perfectly acceptable to pause before answering a difficult question to give yourself thinking time, or asking for clarification if you're unsure what a question means. When answering, don't speak too quickly.
After the interview
As your job interview comes to an end, make sure you find out when you'll be informed of the outcome - and thank the interviewer for giving you the chance to attend.
