Preparing for your job interview

Being properly prepared for a job interview can make you stand out from other applicants. Good preparation takes time and, even when people are prepared, many find an interview a complicated situation to handle.

To help you, we’ve put together our tips on what to do and what to avoid before and during a job interview.

Preparation: before your job interview
As an applicant, you have to give and receive information and take note of what is said and unsaid. The employer will have reviewed your competences before the interview, but the actual evaluation will not take place until the interview is over. The interview is your opportunity to optimise your chances of getting the job of your dreams.

Before the interview, it’s a good idea to:

  • Research the organisation carefully – what kind of organisation is it, and what are their values?
  • Prepare questions about the organisation and the position.
  • Reread your CV and application – the interviewer will most likely ask you about the competences you have listed so make sure all information is correct.
  • Remember to be as precise as possible when answering questions.


Errors and pitfalls in job interviews

There will always be errors made when conducting an interview – both by the organisation and the applicant. Perhaps the organisation’s representative talks too much and forgets to focus on you, or maybe there is no chemistry between you and the interviewer.

As an applicant, you can improve your chances by avoiding these mistakes:

  • Do not come across as nervous so the company can get a realistic impression of you. Seek counselling before the interview if you have previously experienced extreme anxiety during important interviews or exams.
  • Do not try to appear different from how you usually are in a work situation – do not pretend to possess qualities that don’t come naturally to you, just because they are mentioned in the job description.
  • Do not lie, twist or withhold information – it will be discovered eventually!
