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.



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.
