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.
