Interview Tips:

  • Do you research on the business, news and media around the business, the Interviewers, and anything that is relevant to the job
  • Prepare well by providing evidence based answers
  • Review the job description, and come up with examples per each requirement
  • Practice, practice, practice – Rehearse your answers out loud in front of the mirror, get someone to ask you questions, or record your responses so you are better prepared – Arrive 10 minutes early
  • If you have a video interview, ensure your background setting is tidy, the lighting is good, room is quiet, and you have checked the sound
  • Always present well and dress well in business attire
