OUR TOP TIP FOR ACEING YOUR INTERVIEW: PREPARATION!
RESEARCH THE COMPANY AND ROLE
Google the company so that you can learn about them prior to the interview. If you're able to talk about what you know about the business or role in your interview, then it will show the interviewer that you have a genuine interest in working there.
PLAN YOUR JOURNEY
Research the journey time so that you know how long it will take you to get to the interview. Leave enough time to get there with plenty of time to spare.
PRACTICE USING THE STAR TECHNIQUE
Practice providing answers to some common interview questions using the STAR technique with the help of a friend/family member. As part of this, think about times where you may have worked in a group, had success, overcome challenges etc. which you can use in your answers.
PREPARE QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR INTERVIEWER
At the end of the interview, your interviewer will ask you whether you have any questions - it's important that you ask one! You could ask them questions such as: how long have they worked for the company or what do they like about working there?
DRESS TO IMPRESS
First impressions count! Make sure you are ready from the moment you arrive at the door by wearing something smart.
When answering the interviewer's questions, be honest and open about your experience and skills.
CONSIDER YOUR BODY LANGUAGE
Maintain eye contact with the interviewer and smile!
Most importantly, good luck! You've got this!
