Heading off to an interview can be nervewracking. But if you have planned appropriately, then the process can run very smoothly.

  • Research the company and industry
  • Practice your interview skills with friends or family
  • Have at least 3 questions prepared to ask the employer about the role and expectations
  • Pre-plan an appropriate outfit to wear to the interview
  • Plan your journey beforehand so that you can arrive 5-10 minutes before your interview

 

DURING

  • Showcase relevant documents  (CV, certificates, and portfolio)
  • Be positive when answering questions
  • Prove that you can do the requirements listed on the job description
  • State how your skills will benefit the role and the company
  • Have continuous eye contact, speak with confidence and engage with the interviewer
  • Make sure you say that you want the job

 

AFTER

  • Send a brief but thoughtful follow-up email
