Job Interview

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
So I have my first job interview next week and I was told that the dress code for this is smart. I have no idea what I'm supposed to wear as I've never needed to dress smart before.

Also, I will need to give a 1 minute talk about myself and I'm starting to panic about it as I hate telling people about myself :(

Does anyone have any advice?

    Hey Volcano1345

    Congratulations on getting a job interview, that's a great achievement! :thumb:

    On TheSite there are lot's of great articles about job interviews that might be helpful. This one has some really useful top tips There is also a really great video about what to wear for a job interview from an employers point of view.

    Talking about yourself can often feel awkward but remember it is all your great skills that have got you this interview and this is your opportunity to showcase just how great you would be for this job. Sometimes talking to friends and family and getting them to identify your characteristics and skills that would make you perfect for this job can be helpful. Also practising out loud and in front of a mirror can help you to feel more confident.

    Good luck and do let us know how you get on!
