 Preparing for your job interview in advance will help you feel more confident on the day.

  1. Write down all the important information
  • When agreeing to a job interview, write down the date, time and location. Ask for the name and phone number of the contact person.
  1. Plan, research and practise!
  • Plan ahead what you will wear and how you'll get to the interview.
  • Research the employer to understand their business and priorities.
  • Practise your responses to possible interview questions.
  1. Stay calm
  • Remember that everyone finds job interviews a bit stressful, so feeling nervous is normal.
  • If you start feeling stressed, a couple of slow, deep breaths may help you calm down.
  1. Follow-up
  • At the end of the interview, ask about the next steps in the selection process.
  • Check who you should follow up with about the outcome and how long it might take to make a decision.
