10 Points How to Interview

I spend a lot of time with creatives on understanding how to best present themselves and their work in an interview.

I recently did a talk to a group of students and was asked to put forward 10 bullet points on how to go about the interview process.

I thought I would share them with you. They are in no specific order, but all equally important.

• Interview the interviewer (It’s important you understand the role and ask questions too).

• Be confident not cocky.

• Have a plan when you meet them on how you want to show your work.

• Gauge the meeting to see if they are chatty, quiet, formal, informal and follow accordingly.

• Never forget it’s an interview.

• Research the company first.

• Communication - BE YOU!

• Don’t bore them, find something in common with them while chatting eg: a project they’ve done, footy team, picture of a pet on their desk.

• Be relevant.

• Be individual.
