    @Emoji246 As long as you answer the questions as best as you can you'll do just fine. What kind of job is it for may I ask? Just curious! :)

    The nerves are natural but you'll be just fine <3

    Be confident, truthful & most importantly be yourself.  

    What type of job are you going for? It might help to write down some of the questions they might ask in the interview and then kinda interview yourself so that you can prep your answers :smiley:

    Good luck! :smiley:

    Best of luck! I really hope it goes well :heart:

    I totally agree with everyone elses advice. Another tip, which sounds simple but can mean a lot, is to smile! Even if this is over the phone, you can quite literally 'hear' when people are smiling, by the way your tone will come across. This will show them your enthusiasm for the job which they'll really appreciate! 

    Going off what @Liam  has said about prepping some questions (great point!), there is a website called 'glass door' where people talk about their experiences at different work places They will often talk about their interview process and the questions they were asked. Although the exact questions might not be available, it's always a handy idea so that you can write down a few ideas beforehand...you never know if they'll come in handy :smile:

    Make you spend time practicing some example questions - talking out loud and practice can help us to rehearse and frame our answer, and mentally practicing the situation will help to make the actual thing less nervous. Keep a bottle of water on hand to stay hydrated. If you need more time, ask them to repeat the question. Don't worry about taking a pause - they're happy to wait for an answer! Best of luck, let us know how it goes!
