So your CV worked and you are through to the interview stage. A work coach from Jobcentre Plus has some tips to give you an edge.
Great news – you have an interview, and an opportunity to show them why you’re the right person for the job. Whether you are attending the interview online, over the phone or in-person, make sure you do your homework and be prepared.
Here are my top tips:
- Research the company – What do they do? How many people do they employ? What is the company’s history?
- Sounds basic, but decide what you’ll wear. Make sure your clothes are appropriate to the job you’re going for even if it’s a video interview.
- Have you thought hard about what questions you could be asked? Look over your application form objectively – what might you ask if you were the interviewer?
- Relax, smile, look the interviewer in the eye and use the opportunity to tell them about the great stuff you’ve done.
Best of Luck!
