Our Top Interview Tips for Candidates

It’s important to make a positive first impression when going for an interview! Candidates – follow our tips here:

Always research your employer before an interview 

Pre-interview research is pivotal, your interviewer will be interested to see how familiar you are with their company, their vison, goals and what services they offer. You could do a Google search prior to your interview to give you a clear picture of what the organisation specialises in. 

Time Keeping and Preparation 

Make sure you know where you're going in advance and who is interviewing you. On the day, don't be late!! make sure you plan your journey and allow time to be early. Being late not only makes you look unprofessional, it doesn't put you in the right frame of mind gong into the interview.

Improve your body language 

Your body language says a lot about you, be confident and present yourself well. We appreciate it's normal to be nervous, but avoid hands in your pockets and remain eye contact throughout the interview. Show enthusiasm, always dress appropriately and be confident.

Explain why you're suited for the role

Tailor your CV and your skills to what the employer and the role you're applying for require, tell the employer why you would be a suitable fir for the vacancy. We understand when you're nervous it's easy for your mind to go blank, so take a look over you CV on the day and remind yourself of your skills and give examples on how you've demonstrated these.

Ask Appropriate Questions

Always prepare some insightful questions in advance to ask your interviewer, this shows them that you have a genuine interest in working for their company. It would be key to ask questions about the company vision and development opportunities, never ask about pay, lunch hours or working from etc.

End on a positive note

Thank them for your time and the opportunity, end with a handshake and find out the next steps. If you're offered the position, make sure the job is for you before accepting and remember, if you're unsuccessful don't worry. Ask for feedback and be resilient to bounce back and improve next time.

Good Luck!
