    Hey Distraction!

    I've never had a job interview myself, so I can't really give any advice from my experience :\

    Maybe someone else more sociable than me can 😂

    Have you checked the page the mix has on this?
    http://www.themix.org.uk/work-and-study/getting-a-job/job-interview-tips-1218.html

    There'll be plenty of other online stuff too :hyper:

    Good luck with the interview! Let us know how it goes :)

    Hey Distraction, congratulations on getting an interview. Wishing you the best of luck for it, let us know how it goes :)
    That article Aidan linked you to has some great advice and tips about job interviews that might be helpful to read through. This bit of advice is really good:
    Think of examples

    Saying, ‘I’m a really creative person’ doesn’t make it true. But saying, ‘I’m really creative. I have a photography blog I update three times a week’ will make an interviewer trust you. If you’re really a ‘team player’ you’ll need to demonstrate it. What kind of team? And what did you actually do that made you such a great teammate?
    Before the interview, make a list of the questions you might be asked and work out how you’d respond with examples.

    What helps for some people is to prepare some example questions and answers and practice reading through them. There's some great example questions on Prospects website here. It can also be good to think of a few questions to ask them at the end to show you're interested about the role :)

    Best of luck!
