Interview Tips and Advice from Start to Finish


We all hate interviews. They are nerve wracking and the pressure can really get to us. So we thought that we’d devise a few simple steps on how to 1. overcome those nerves and 2. demonstrate your suitability for the position.


First and foremost, if you fail to plan you are planning to fail. Researching the company that are interviewing you will greatly benefit your circumstance and will result in you feeling a lot more calm and collected. Being prepared to answer questions, such as, ‘What do you think you can bring to …. ? ‘ and ‘What do you think is …. strongest product?’ will put you a notch above the rest.

As well as researching the company, ensure to re read your CV and the job description before the interview. This will allow time to think about how your previous experience matches your future role.

Always prepare answers to the most common questions, for example, your personal strengths and weaknesses, why you are the best person for the job, what you can bring to the company etc. In response have some questions for your interviewer to demonstrate your interest in the position.


Looking good feels good. Ensure you are well dressed, clean, approachable and most importantly feel confident in yourself as this will reflect in your first impression and although your appearance shouldn’t matter, it does.

Greet your interviewer with a smile and firm handshake and maintain eye contact throughout the interview but glancing away approximately every three seconds – try not to think about this too much that you forget your answers!

Stay calm! Speak clearly, smile and remember that your interviewers are just normal people, and they may be nervous too. If you do need a few moments’ silence to collect your thoughts ensure you do so – don’t waffle. It is not what you say, but how you say it.

Leave in the same way that you arrived, regardless of whether you believe it was a success – confident and calm.


Remaining organised when job searching is important. If you have multiple interviews having a diary will help. Always ask the interviewer when they will have a decision – give it a day or two after that and call them back – remembering to schedule this in your diary.

Calling your interviewer and asking for any feedback on how the interview went is not a negative. It will actually show how you wish to self improve and better yourself – you never know, this may prompt them to reconsider.
