Do you have any interview tips?

Research the company thoroughly its values and business goal. Future , current and past project the company is involved in- this will be a good talking point. Use the STAR (Situation, Task, Activity and Result) technique when rehearsing and preparing interview answers for a range of different question. Prepare for competency and situational based questions. TIP - if your unsure of how to answer a question in the interview simple buy some time by saying " That's a really good question could I have a moment to think about it please" this will give you a short amount of time to think about it.

Example in a technical interview - If you don't know something don't try to blag the question just simply be truthful and say I'm not really sure how to answer this question how would you tackle this task/question. This will show them that you have integrity and will be truthful.
