At totaljobs we work with employers and jobseekers every single day and along the way we’ve learnt a lot about interviews. Here are some of our top tips to make sure you nail that interview:

1. Prepare your answers

Do a bit of research online on common interview questions and know exactly what you’re going to say so you can sell yourself. Think back on interviews you’ve had already and prepare exactly what you want to say so you’re selling yourself the best possible way.

2. Learn your C.V.

Make sure you know what your work history is, what your key skills are and how they’ve transferred across every job you’ve worked at. Know exactly what your career gaps are and how to explain them to an interviewer, because that is a question they will ask.

3. Have confidence

Be able to go into the interview and explain why you want to work there, why you’d be great for the job, why you’d be a great fit at the company and what you can bring to the table.

4. Look the part

Do a bit of research into what the company culture is like and even what the area you’d be working in is like. Make sure you know how to dress and act accordingly so you look and feel like you already work for the company and will fit in.

5. Don’t be late

It may sound simple but plan in advance your travel route to get to the interview. Make sure you allow enough time so you get there in advance with some time to relax and gather your thoughts. The last thing you want to do is turn up flustered and not ready.

If you follow these tips you’re going to be in great shape to get that job. Good luck!
