First, do your research
It is important that you understand what the role is like, in addition to company values and the work you will be doing.
Review the position description and highlight specific skills or personal qualities that the employer mentions. Prepare stories and responses to address these concerns.
Review the company website and social media pages to equip yourself with an understanding of current goals or priorities. Researching the company or organization will help you gain a better understanding of who they are and what they do. Make sure you also prepare questions about the organization, role, or team culture to ask during the interview
Interviewing is a learned skill that can be improved with practice. Practice your responses to typical interview questions with a friend or family member; get comfortable telling your stories and answering questions about your experiences.
It can help if you research potential questions online and jot down sample responses or examples from your past experiences.
Bring extra copies of your resume, and have a list of your references on a separate sheet of paper ready to hand over.
You may want to bring a pen and notebook to jot down any important notes. In some cases, you may wish to bring a tablet or laptop to show your digital portfolio in person.
Plan your route to the interview beforehand; double-check the location and map your route via public transit or figure out where to park before the interview.
Arrive 5-10 minutes before the start of your interview. Arriving too early can be bothersome to employers, who may have other interviews and appointments before you, and waiting too long can increase your nervousness.
Dress the part
First impressions count! In general, dress one step up from what the organization’s employees wear on a typical day; when in doubt, dress more formally.
Be conservative and detail-oriented (e.g., polished shoes, neat hair, no colognes or perfumes).
