Whilst research is key it is also important to be able to sell your experience in detail. 

  • Read through the job description and write against each task a detailed example (doesn’t matter how basic or the level of experience) It is important that you can talk through an example if the question is asked

  • Get familiar with the terms used, so you can match how you talk about your skills and experience using those keywords.

  • Use the STAR method (Situation, Task, Action, Result) to structure your answers effectively.

  • List all the packages that you have used and write a few examples of how you use these

 The second thing you need to do when preparing for an interview is study the company. This means:

  • Explore your company’s official website

  • Read the news 

  • Find out who their competition is 

  • Browse through their official LinkedIn page and socials 

  • Research the people who work there (including your interviewer(s) and potential co-workers).
