job interview tips

Top Takeaways:

  • Don’t bring your parents to YOUR job interview! It is completely unprofessional. Millennials we’re looking at you!
  • Dress appropriately, arrive early and be prepared for your interview. Do your homework as regards the company and the role you applied for, a couple of days before the interview.
  • Always send a short, follow-up ‘Thank You’ email to your interviewer on the same day as the interview took place. It’s polite, and it will help you stand out from the other interviewees.
  • Ready yourself for oddball questions the interviewer may throw at you. Be ready to think on your feet and remember to have a sense of humour. These questions are asked primarily to assess your personality and your critical thinking skills.
