Preparing for Interviews

The key to succeeding at interviews is preparation. If you arrive on the day planning to “wing it”, you’re not going to do very well. Employers can tell when someone has prepared for their interview, and it will show you are motivated and dedicated. Your preparation should start as soon as you’ve been told you’ve got an interview.

"By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail" – Benjamin Franklin

You might get an email or phone call inviting you to an interview. Make sure you take notes of where it will be and if there’s anything you need to bring. Make sure you confirm you will be attending, whether it’s verbally or through a recruitment website.
