Most people get anxious when it comes to job interviews. Whether it’s your first job or a change of
career, being anxious is a natural feeling.
There is no perfect way to prepare for an interview, as everyone is different. There are many types of
interviews that require different skills.
Some interviews are one-to-one, some have more than one interviewer, and some include a group exercise
(where interviewers observe the way candidates work together). You may also need to do a short test
before your interview.
Most interviewers will let you know beforehand if they’d like you to take part in any
tests, group discussions or presentations and the format of your interview.
While no two interviews are the same, every employer will want to find out whether:
you have the knowledge and skills necessary to do the job
your experience indicates that you can use these skills in your new role
what you are like as a person and if your values meet the employer
It’s important to keep these points in mind when you’re preparing for the interview, and during the
interview itself. If all your answers to their questions focus on these three things.
