1. Research
Always do research on the company you are being interviewed by. Find out about the company’s history and research their plans for the next coming years. Also research the latest development in the industry so you can show you have knowledge of the bigger picture.

2. Dress appropriately
Have a look at how people in the role you are going for dress – this will give you an idea about what is suitable.

3. Arrive early 
Aim to arrive 15 minutes before your interview is scheduled to start.

4. Your USPs
Emphasise what your Unique Selling Points (USPs) are. Chances are, lots of people going for the same job will have similar work experience and qualifications, but what is going to make you stand out? What are your strengths? What are you proud of? And what do you think they should know about you?

5. Don’t be afraid to ask.
In an interview the worse thing you could do, is give a response that is nonsense to a question a potential employer has asked. If you do not understand a question, or you did not hear the question properly – ask them to elaborate on what the question is, or ask them to repeat themselves. The rest of the interview will go down a lot better – we can assure you!
