Research: Both the company and the job that you have applied for
Know where you are going: Plan your route beforehand so that you don't get lost resulting in you turning up late
Practice: Use practice questions to learn how to structure your answers, use the STAR format (Situation, Task, Action, Result) and write them down if it helps and even use colours when doing so as this can help you to remember
Questions: It's important to ask your own questions during the interview. Think about what you would like to know about the company and the job role. Write them down and take them to the interview with you. Make sure you prepare a few questions as it may be the case that the interviewer covers some of these before you can ask them
Dress Accordingly: Find out about the dress code for the employment and choose your outfit around this
Arrive early: It's best to arrive around 10-15 minutes before the interview is due to start. This shows that you are punctual but also gives you time to take in your surroundings and understand the workplace dynamic
Keep your answers structured: Try and use the STAR layout (Situation, Task, Action, Result), be truthful and do not talk negatively about past employers
Remember your good manners and body language: Sit or stand tall with shoulders back, do not lean or cross your arms. Always smile and keep eye contact, this shows confidence
No Mobiles: Make sure you turn off your mobile phone or switch it to silent
Don't turn up empty handed: Bring with you a pen and paper, be prepared to make notes if needed. Have a copy of your CV so you can refer to it if you feel that the interviewer has missed an accomplishment. Also bring a list of questions that you want to ask at the end of your interview
Prepare your questions: Take time to think about what you would like to know about the job role i.e. how will my performance be measured? or can you explain some of the day to day responsibilities of this job role? This may be where you would write down some notes
Research: It is likely that the interview will ask what you know about the company so make sure that you have done your research
Practice your answers: Get a friend or family member to sit down with you and go through practice questions and answers. Time your answers so that you make sure you do not say too much!
Be human! Take time at the beginning for casual pleasantries to show your social side. Be yourself and your individual personality
Don't panic! If you don't know the answer that's ok. You can also ask to come back to a question later in the interview so that you can take a bit more time to think
