Having a successful interview is one of the most fulfilling things you can ever do, so prepare well, relax and you might just end up enjoying it!
Control your nerves
Everyone feels nervous before an interview - we're only human - and nerves can sometimes make us rush. To help control this, take 2 deep breaths before you start, breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth.
Make sure you're talking clearly
When people are nervous they tend to speak really quickly. But if you're aware of this you can slow yourself down and make sure you don't gabble. Another way to make sure you don't talk too quickly is to pause at the end of your first sentence for a couple of seconds. This also gives you time to collect your thoughts, so you don't lose track of what you're saying.
Use eye contact
Eye contact helps you maintain a confident style and build some rapport with your interviewer. Interview experts tell us that the key time to look at someone is at the end of your sentence as this helps reinforce what you've just said.
