A 30-Second Cheat Sheet for Interview Success

Application processes are hard, but for most candidates the most nerve-wrenching moments of job hunting come from interviewing.

By the time you arrive at the interview location, you should have already completed most of your interview prep: researched the company, practised common interview questions, read back through the job spec and CV. But even in that last half-a-minute before you walk into the interview room, you can employ some preparation tactics to help give you an edge.

The following tips are super simple but incredibly effective in helping you combat your nerves and make a fantastic first impression.

  1. Recite a positivity mantra

Sounds cheesy, is cheesy, but works. Before your interview, think about your greatest strengths and all the times you’ve felt proud of yourself.  Focusing on the positives instantly boosts our self-esteem and helps us start the interview confidently.

  1. Prepare your opener

Figure out the first thing you’re going to say when you walk into that room. It doesn’t have to be complicated – a general greeting is perfect – but thinking about it in advance stops you from freezing or garbling your words.

  1. Adopt a power pose

Body language is important. So-called “power-poses” (think standing tall and having an open posture) pack a double whammy: they make you appear confident and self-assured, and they make you feel more confident and self-assured! Just don’t overegg it.

  1. Take a deep breath

When you’re nervous, one of the best things you can do is simply take a big breath in, and another big breath out. Slow, steady breathing signals to the brain to calm down and is scientifically proven to combat anxiety.

  1. Smile

Always enter the interview room with a smile. It will make you look friendly and approachable – traits that interviewers like! Scientists say it takes just seven seconds for interviewers to form their first impression of a candidate, a smile makes sure it’s a good one. Plus, the mere act of smiling has been shown to make people feel more positive.
