You've got through the first stage of the application process and have been invited to interview, congratulations – this is a big deal! You have impressed the employer enough for them to want to get to know you better but what now?!

Rest assured, the interview is not a trap where employers try to catch you out or highlight your weaknesses. The purpose of the interview is for the employers to discover your suitability for the position advertised and your motivation and desire to succeed within the role, but equally, it is for you to find out whether the employer and/or job meets your expectations.

Each interview you go to will be different depending on the role, the organisation, or even the sector, however there are many things that you can do now to help you to prepare and enter that interview with confidence.
