The interview is the first chance to showcase your skills, make a good impression and make your claim for the job, and it’s also a time at which Businesses must get the process right in order to find the best candidate for the job.
Almost every employee has nerves going into the interview and many have a terrible story to tell about at least one interview, whether it was a pushy interviewer, a tougher than normal environment, or even some of those extremely awkward questions.
The most important thing to remember this is as much an opportunity for the business to display what’s great about them, as it is for the aspiring employee to do the same.
