  • [Top 10 interview tips.]

  • When it comes to getting your interview right, you want to have confidence in going into that interview.

  • So we've got 10 tips to help you on your way.

  • The first thing, is you wanna actually understand the company and where you're going to be interviewed.

  • Get to know them so you feel confident knowing about them.

  • The next thing you want to do, is practice your interview questions.

  • You can practice with friends, you can practice in front of the mirror, or just do it with yourself.

  • But practicing your response is really important.

  • Then, you want to think about what you are going to wear and how you'll present yourself.

  • And it's good to have an idea about that company, so that you know what people are wearing and how you can match the culture.

  • Then you want to think about your hair and being neat and tidy.

  • This is an expectation of most employers in how we present ourselves.

  • The next thing you want to do is: How you are going to get there?

  • Make sure you research beforehand how to get there.

  • If it's driving, if it's walking, if it's public transport.

  • Make sure you've got a plan in your mind so that you're prepared and not nervous at the last minute that you've taken the wrong bus or train.

  • Then you want to make sure you're arriving 15 minutes before your interview.

  • You want to get there and feel relaxed.

  • And trust me, when you get there earlier, the person seeing you notices this, and this is an important piece.

  • You don't ever want to be late to an interview.

  • You also want to make sure you have put your phone on silent, not vibrate, but silent.

  • This is really important, interviewers pay attention to these things.

  • So make sure when you're shaking the interviewer's hand, you actually apply the same amount of pressure that they are giving you in that handshake.

  • This is important because it helps establish rapport and trust and you're not overpowering your handshake but you're not underpowering it.

  • Then you want to have a list of questions that you can actually ask, that you've thought about that mean something to you.

  • This shows initiative and the interviewer will enjoy knowing that you've done some research and you're curious about the company.

  • Another great idea is, ask your friends about their interviewing experiences, what's worked, what hasn't worked.

  • The more you can learn from others, it really does help you relax and calm yourself as you go into any interview.

  • So finally, take your time answering questions.

  • You have all the time in the world you need in doing this.

  • This is a really important thing, don't rush it.

  • Breathe, relax, and enjoy the process.

  • This gives the interviewer a chance to get to know you.

  • And that's ultimately what you want to be doing.
