Having been chosen from potentially huge numbers of applicants, you’ve reached the interview stage – congratulations!

Those few days before any interview can be a nerve-wracking time, so it can be difficult to channel your time into doing anything constructive. However, preparation is the key to any interview – though many people don’t actually realise this.

Preparing for an interview is vital for three main reasons:

1 – It helps you answer questions clearly and concisely. Although you can’t second guess every question you might be asked, if you are prepared you can tailor them to fit or at least draw upon them for inspiration.

2 – For your own confidence. If you’re prepared, your body language and demeanor will show it. For both interviewees and interviewers, there’s nothing more soul-sapping than an interview in which you have to drag ill-prepared and under-researched answers out.

3 – To show willing. The interview allows your potential employer a first opportunity to judge whether you’re right for the job, and showing you’re keen and organised enough to do your prep work is a big plus on any employer’s tick list.
