While there is no way of knowing what questions the interview will ask you it’s a good idea to have some answers to common interview questions prepared. Stumbling over a question such as ‘What are you biggest strengths?’ does not bode well for you, write down some answers and try to memorise them before your interview!
Don’t forget to research the company too, a quick Google search will give you all the information you need about a company so you can go into the interview with an understanding of what it does, it’s values and its audience/clients.
- Be confident
We know it’s easier said than done but try to trick the interviewer into thinking you’re confident, simple things such as body language and eye contact will help you achieve this! Avoiding eye contact and fidgeting will give off a ‘nervous’ vibe while good posture and eye contact will help you exude confidence.
- Dress the part
You only have a short amount of time to impress your interviewer, which means appearance can play a huge part in how you are perceived. For some great interview style tips check out our tips on dressing for interviews.
