The interview begins well before you hear your first question.
Your main aim during the interview is to come across as confident, knowledgeable and to prove that you’re more than capable of doing the job. To top it off, you need to be enthusiastic about the company.
Easiest way to do this?
Do your homework!
If you’ve got a thought in your mind that you might not be the right match for the job, even if you give perfect answers - you simply won’t sound convincing. It’s really hard to be persuasive about something if even you don’t believe it's true.
So, ideally a day prior to the interview, prepare a list of all the factors that make you a great candidate for this role.
Also, create another list of all the reasons why you’re keen to join this particular team and company.
Keep these two lists fresh in your mind up until your interview for a last-minute confidence boost, to make yourself energised and excited.
Also, embrace the experience, be grateful for the opportunity to learn something new, enjoy meeting your interviewers and look forward to the possibility of a great new role.
Focus your mind and you’ll achieve results!
