Regardless of the type of interview that you are attending, it is key that you make a good first impression with your potential employer, as this will give you a better chance of being offered the role. You should expect to be assessed throughout the interview process, the interviewer will ask you a series of questions about past experiences at work or in life. Sometimes there is also an element of testing involved, designed to assess whether or not you have the skills needed to perform the job effectively.

We understand that attending an interview can be a stressful prospect, regardless of your age or seniority level. It can be challenging to answer on-the-spot questions and talk about your experience in a positive, and engaging way that excites the interviewer enough to offer you the role. However, it is normal and expected by interviewers, that you will feel nervous. Thorough preparation can help with this, including listing past experiences and learning about the organisation in full before attending the interview.
