Ace Your Interview

Interviews can be as nerve-wracking as any exam, with a wide variety of potential pitfalls that you can fall into, but with the right preparation they can be straightforward – and possibly even fun.

To begin with, please make sure you don’t make any interview mistakes which are as big as these interview howlers – falling asleep during the interview won’t help your chances – and make sure you are dressed appropriately. First impressions go a long way in an interview.

Moving on, these tips will help make the interview run a lot smoother. Employers are interested in you, so be prepared to sell yourself. These interview ground rules will also help: prepare yourself, research the company and take the time to say thank you.

Need more advice? The GW Career Center can help you! We are running our Ace Your Interview workshop on January 24, at 4pm, in Marvin Center room 402-404. This workshop will help you to familiarize yourself with the type of initial interviews you might face and possible follow-up interview scenarios. Can’t make it then? We’re running it again on March 20, at 6.30pm, in Marvin Center room 310.
