Do you have any interview tips?
Basic interview questions about real life application, for example: "Tell me a time where you worked well as a team?", "If you had to name a weakness about yourself what would it be?"
The questions aren't too complicated, make sure you try to calm yourself down before entering the room. Everyone's nervous for interviews but you soon get into the swing of things after having answered a few questions. My manager and line manager were very talkative during the interview and put me at ease very quickly.
