Interview tips

“The interview is your opportunity to really highlight your skills, experience, strengths and how you can successfully perform the role”*

“Do your research about the company, understand the role and visualise yourself performing the duties of the position, thinking back to your own experience and what you have to offer”*

“It is good to have at least 2 or 3 examples prepared that you can think of which demonstrate 3 of the requirements for what makes a suitable candidate”*

“When talking about your strengths, back yourself up with examples and prove to the interviewer you have demonstrated in past roles application of your strengths”*

“There is no point making up something and then being caught out by the employer. If you don’t know something, say that you don’t know. Don’t lie.”*

“Your first impression is everything. Arrive at least 15 minutes early. Dress professionally and respectful. “*

“If being interviewed by a panel, make sure that you maintain eye contact with everyone, keeping your main contact with the person asking you the question”*

“If you left on bad terms for your last employer, avoid saying anything negative about them. It doesn’t look professional and drops the conversation to a negative level which is what you don’t want*

“The interview is your chance to really draw attention to your skills, experience, strengths and how you can successfully perform the position”*

“Try and do as much research about the company, as you can, learn about their industry and even better, find out about the latest developments”*

“If you don’t understand the question being asked of you, don’t be afraid to ask them to clarify the question”

“If you don’t know something, avoid making up an answer, but rather tell the truth and what understanding or similar knowledge you do have”*
