After applying for the job of our dreams, we have all had that feeling of anxiety when waiting to hear back. When you get invited for an interview, it obviously suggests the employer is interested in employing you and thinks you are likely to be a good fit for the company. Now it falls on you to convince them they are right. The biggest piece of advice you will read everywhere: preparation is key. Find out exactly the role you will be undertaking in the business and what it's likely to entail. This could involve reading industry blogs and trade magazines, or following someone in a similar position to you on LinkedIn. The closer you are to knowing what your job will entail, the better prepared you can be, allowing you to tailor your examples of communication and attention to detail to the role.
