Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. When it comes to interviews, no truer words have been spoken. But there are also many other aspects to ensuring that you are coming across as best as you can during an interview. Here are some tips on how best to prepare and make the right first impression.
Being ready for the interview will help with your confidence. Showing that you are knowledgeable about the available role, and the company itself, will help you demonstrate how your skills and experience make you a perfect fit for the opportunity.
In an interview you have a very short amount of time to impress someone, so first impressions are important!
Try to come across as confident and passionate. You should be able to discuss the following in detail, whilst always trying to show that you are the perfect Candidate for the role:
Interviewers want to see that not only can you do the tasks which make up the role, but also work well with others, so let your personality come through. Stay professional, but also open and approachable - it may just give the edge over equally qualified Candidates who may not have the desired personality fit.
Use the end of the interview as an opportunity to highlight your enthusiasm for the role and that you are looking forward to hearing back from them. Finally, don't be afraid to ask relevant and interesting questions.
