First Things First

Did you know that it can take interviewers as little as 90 seconds to decide if they think you’ll fit the role or not? First impressions are vitally important in the job market. Remember that your body language, appearance, clothing, and the way you speak can all set you at an advantage or disadvantage depending on what conclusion your interviewer comes to.

Sell Yourself

The purpose of an interview is to see if the role is a good fit for both parties, so you need to demonstrate relevant qualities, such as problem-solving, creativity, and listening skills. If your CV is thin, emphasise your potential and willingness to learn. Sometimes interviewers are more interested in your potential growth as an employee.

Practice Makes Perfect

Interviews can be daunting for a variety of reasons, and one of the best ways to ease this is with practice. Of course, you don’t want to use real interviews as a test run; setting up practice interviews with friends, family, or various employment services (including recruiters) is your best bet, and can help you start to find the situation less immediately stressful by way of association.

Once your confidence has grown and you start to get called in for real interviews, you can use these as a very helpful learning tool – even the unsuccessful ones.Simply ask for feedback from your interviewers to help you identify weaknesses and improve your interview technique.
