An interview is usually the final stage of the application process.
It is your final chance to impress your potential employer, so be sure to follow our useful top tips below to help you in that all important interview…
Do your research
You will be asked specific questions about the company and the role, so make sure you’ve done your homework! Impress your interviewer with what you know and how your skill set will benefit the company.
Practice your answers
You should prepare answers to some of the most common interview questions, such as your strengths and weaknesses. You should also be able to explain why you are interested in the position.
Look the part
Appearances shouldn’t matter, but the plain fact is that you are often judged before you’ve even uttered a word, so make sure you look smart and always remember to shine those shoes!
Good preparation is the key to staying in control. Remember to speak clearly, smile, and remember that your interviewer is just an ordinary person, who is more than likely going to be nervous too!
Think about asking how the culture is within the work place, how many people are in the team, or perhaps where the company sees itself in five year’s time.
