13 Top Interview Tips

It’s important that you make the most of your interview by you showing the employer the real ‘you’ and most importantly by saying the right things to make them want to employ you.

That's why we've put together these 13 top interview tips to help you smash your interview and bag your dream job!

Always do your research; you don't want to stumble over your words or be caught out by any questions, leaving you looking unprepared and unknowledgeable.

Be Punctual
Be on time; make sure to leave plenty of time to get to your interview and to find the right building and floor. Allowing you time to settle those nerves and have one last practice of your interview questions.

Sell Yourself
It's really important that you be yourself, be honest, open and sell yourself as best you can.

Building rapport is crucial, make eye contact and be conversational. Remember to make the odd joke to help show your personality.

Make sure that you understand the job description and use the information provided to your advantage.

As silly as it sounds practice your interview answers with friend or family member, this will put you at ease and chances are you'll feel a lot more relaxed going into the interview

Prepare any questions you have in advance, interviewers love it when you ask questions, plus it demonstrates your interest in the position.

Give real examples of ‘how’ you have achieved positive in your current role. Be clear about what your personal contribution was and use ‘I’ rather than ‘we’.

Be prepared to tackle competency-based interview questions. Most employers are looking for applicants to demonstrate a specific set of skills which they believe are essential to the job role.

Think First
Don't be afraid to take a few moments to collect your thoughts to allow you to answer questions properly.

Expect the Unexpected
Sometimes you might come up against a real curve ball in your interview, but it's important to keep your cool, take a moment to think it over and answer the question to the best of your abilities.

First Impressions
You can never change a first impression, so make sure you look the part and you're dressed appropriately; your shoes should be polished, your clothes should fit correctly and your accessories should be subtle. A well groomed and tidy appearance will work wonders. We always say, dress for the job you want, not the job you have.

Stay Calm and composed and everything will be alright!
