Updated: Jun 17

It's normal to be nervous about an upcoming interview. The best way to overcome those fears is to prepare, prepare, and prepare some more. Here I share with you great ways to increase your chances of blowing the interviewers away!



Did you know? That even seemingly lower-level employees like front desk staff who greeted you or set up your interview may be asked for their impressions?


Nail your interview:


1. Research The Company


It is very likely the interviewer will test your knowledge, so be prepared to wow them with what you have learned. Here are simple ways to conduct your research:

  • Check out the company's Linkedin, their webpage, and any of their social media pages

  • Know approximately the amount of employees they have ,and the size fo the company

  • Look up the CEO, and the company's mission/vision

  • What does the company do, what is their niche?

  • Reach out to current employees or read reviews on Glassdoor or Indeed to ensure this is a company you'd like to work for. (you can gauge employee satisfaction based on these surveys)

2. Practice your responses

Mock interviews are very important to practice potentially answers to commonly asked interview questions and a great way to feel more confident in the interview.

  • Write down potential interview questions and your answers

  • Have a friend , significant , other or family member ask you questions

  • Record yourself as if you are in a live interview ( take not of how many filler words you use such as "um" , "ah", "you know", "ok", "like") keep practicing until these a null or minimally used.

  • Start practicing as soon as you can and , continue up until the moment before your interview-practice makes near perfect!
