Be prepared for that interview!

The thoughts of sitting before a panel of strangers, being asked questions about yourself and your career may seem like a daunting task to many of us. Given that your performance will determine whether or not you will be employed, there is a lot at stake when it comes to job interviews.

Under these circumstances, it is only natural that you will be nervous. But don't panic! If you are well prepared you will be able to go into the interview confident and with the ability to handle anything that's thrown at you.

Part of your preparation will involve researching the job and the company - being familiar with what they do, what they have achieved and what they plan in the future. Much of this information can be gained from their websites and annual reports.

Another part of your preparation will involve researching the type of questions that will be asked of you . has compiled a list of the 100 most common interview questions. It covers basic interview questions about you, your chartacter such as 'Tell me about your proudest achievement' or 'What do you do in your spare time?'. It also lists questions on behaviour such as 'how do you deal with difficult people' or 'Give me an example of a time that you felt you went above and beyond the call of duty at work'.

Try to work your way through these and tailor them to your own situation and experiences. 
It pays to be prepared!
