Interview Advice 🎙

Your CV gets you the interview, but your personality (and the prep you do) gets you the job.
Time and again we have seen great candidates make the same mistakes. Here are five things to always keep front of mind:

1. Do you have a panel of people interviewing? Be sure to connect with them all, and not just the one speaking to you.
2. Remember it’s a two-way thing. This interview is for you to find out about the company and the role, as well as for the employer to discover whether you are the right fit for the job. Prepare at least three questions before you arrive to show your interest, and don’t just ask about salary and benefits.
3. Demonstrate genuine passion but don’t overdo it. Fake enthusiasm gets spotted a mile off.
4. Be cautious of passive words that sound flaky – actually, literally, maybe, honestly etc. Use clear, concise language that expresses confidence and reliability.
5. Be yourself, but don’t get too personal. Whilst some interviewers love to get under your skin, some may be uncomfortable discussing personal subjects that are best kept to your private life.

We are always on hand to run through practice interviews and give you tips and advice through every stage. 📓
