A step-by-step guide for first-time interviewees, or regular job hunters who need to sharpen their interview skills.

In our article employment advice for students we highlighted some basic elements to think about while job hunting. Now, we must focus on the interview process.

An interview can seem overwhelming to many of us, especially if you've not got much experience with them. Here we help you plan for the before, the aftermath and the interview itself.

Preparation

Research

Of all the things that are important to remember when having an interview is that employers expect you to have knowledge of their company and a reason as to why you want to work for them. Knowing what the company stands for, its mission and its vision are important to know. Going through the company’s website, Facebook and LinkedIn page or reading their blog will help you to understand what is going on inside the company. Also, carry out some research to find out current trends and changes within the industry at large to look extra informed.
