Sunday Seven: Seven Interview Tips!

This week I was offered my first full time job! . I’ve been planning to write this post for a while but didn’t want to jinx it while I was going through the interviews, because how could I write tips and then not have a job? So, anyway here are seven of my top tips for job interviews.

Remember that the past doesn’t define the future 

I’ve had a lot of jobs that I really didn’t enjoy but don’t bring negativity into an interview, instead if they ask talk about what you learnt from that job, turn your negatives into positives!

Everyone knows that interviews are nerve wracking, my anxiety was through the roof and I was panicking. All I can say is take a deep breath before you go in.

Make sure you have time before the interview to get there, to find the place you need to be and, of course, being early is always a good sign.

Always go into an interview with information on the company, know the background, what they do and how you can progress.

Know what you want

As about long term opportunities, about what the company can offer you as well as what you can offer them. Remember that it works both ways!

Be Yourself 

There’s nothing worse than pretending to be something you’re not. Be who you are and be proud of who you are!

Don’t give up

You’re not going to get every job you apply for but be satisfied that you got an interview and that you did the best you could!
