Interview Advice

So you have made it through the application process with the excellent advice we have given you about both your CV and covering letter. Its now moved onto the interview process. 

Before your interview, there are a few things that you need to make sure you’re doing to ensure you are as prepared as you can be. We recommend that you research the company in as much detail as you can, in order to ensure that you know them inside and out, and could imagine yourself working there. In doing so, you can bring up points in the interview that will let your interviewer know that you are invested in their company. 

In addition to this, we recommend that you review your strengths, skills and qualities and start to think about how they relate to the job and will put you ahead of the competition. In doing this, you will be able to prep answers for any questions that may come your way. 

This is also something that your interviewer will expect you to know, so make sure that you don’t get caught out by simple questions in your interview. If this is something that you struggle with, then we suggest reflecting on feedback that you’ve been given from your tutors, peers or colleagues. 

Is there a specific quality that people tell you they admire in you? Do you constantly get asked about how you do a certain thing? Do people come to you for advice about a certain topic? All of these are key indicators that this is something that you excel in, so use this to your advantage.
