There’s an increasing amount of competition in the job market, and some roles receive hundreds of applications so it’s important for candidates to stand out from the crowd.
The first stage is to make sure your CV really sells your skills on paper, enough to win you a face-to-face interview with a potential employer.
If you’re lucky enough to be selected for an interview it’s typically the last chance you’ll have to make a good and lasting impression and secure the job or a second stage interview, so it’s vital that you put in the effort and prepare properly for it.
Failing to prepare is preparing to fail. An interview is a time when you’re at your most vulnerable and there’s often a lot riding on it, so if you are unprepared you might find that it becomes a wasted opportunity.
Whether you’re an interview aficionado, a recent graduate with no prior interview experience in your chosen field, or you’ve recently re-entered the job pool after being made redundant, there’s always more to learn when it comes to preparing for a job interview.
