  • 1.

  • Plan the interview with time.

  • Do your research, get to know the company and the position, analyze it and ensure it

  • matches your background and your professional interest.

  • 2.

  • Typical questions which are standard in many interviews are:

  • Obviously an introduction of yourself, your background, studies and experience.

  • Focus on your achievements and responsibilities, rather than just your job titles.

  • Why did you change from one job to another?

  • Have your reasons ready, keep them positive and proactive, as much as possible

  • Where do you see yourself in five years from now?

  • What are your main strengths and your development points?

  • Describe an example of a complicated task or situation and how you resolved it?

  • Why do you think you would be an ideal candidate for this position and why should you be hired?

  • Be positive, honest and enthusiastic in your responses.

  • 3.

  • Choosing your interview outfit is crucial.

  • Prepare what you'll wear in advance and unless you'll be interviewing for a fashion

  • company, where you would need to match with the dress code within the organization, keep

  • it formal, no piercing, keep tattoos covered, minimal make up.

  • However, when interviewing for certain tech companies and start-ups the culture is concertedly

  • more informal.

  • It's good to do some research maybe on the social media of the company and match the

  • look, taking it slightly more professional without being stuff.

  • Overall, just make sure you look professional to the industry, we all have quite a clear

  • vision of what that would be.

  • 4.

  • Be punctual for the interview.

  • Do not arrive too early and certainly do not arrive late.

  • 5-10 minutes before the interview is good.

  • First impressions mean the world, so smile, make eye contact, project confidence with

  • your body language.

  • I know it's a nerve-wracking process, but believe me the interviewer is also interested

  • in your success, that is why you've been invited to the interview in the first place.

  • 5.

  • After the interview, thank the recruiter for their time with a handshake and smile.

  • If no information about the next steps is given, feel free to ask about it.

  • Sending them a “thank youemail the next day, reaffirming your interest in the company

  • and in the position would be a big plus.

  • Thank you very much for watching and good luck with your interview.
