Interviews. We’ve all been there and we know they’re not fun. But just remember: thousands of people sit interviews every day and come out the other side relatively unscathed.
Honestly, there’s no set formula for interview success. They’re all going to be very different. But you have to prepare, show you really know your stuff and make sure you stand out.
Just follow our top tips below.
Let’s face it: you’re not going to impress anyone if you’re not clued up.
Give yourself your best chance by researching the role, the company and the wider industry in detail. You also need to be clear on what skills you can bring to the table (we know you’ve got loads, so don’t be shy) and how you can add value.
Here’s how we see it. If you can’t showcase how great you are, how is your interviewer meant to see it? You’re the author of your own journey, so own it.
Come on now; if you don’t get the job, it’s not the end of the world, right? There will be plenty of chances along your career path and the more interviews you have, the better you become.
Sometimes, it just comes down to a toss-up between a few great candidates. It doesn’t mean you’re not brilliant at what you do. So don’t lose heart.
