Get that job with our interview top tips.

Its ok to feel nervous when going for an interview. Preparing in advance will help with nerves and give you the best chance of getting the job. 

  • Find out more about the company. Visit their website and learn about the work they do and the people they employ. Think about the skills you have and how you can use them to contribute to the success of the company. 
  • Re-read the job advert and your application. This will remind you what the company are looking for and why you would be a great choice. Think of some questions you can ask the interviewer about the job. 
  • Practise answering interview questions with a friend or family member. Be confident in your answers and give examples of what you have done, why you did it, how you solved any problems and describe the outcome or success.
  • Remember that first impressions count! Don't be late for your interview and dress smartly. Try to stay calm and be yourself. An employer wants to see your personality and that you are enthusiastic about the job.
