Interviews are no doubt very nerve wracking and uncomfortable for most of us. With anything, practise makes perfect but also being prepared calms the nerves too.
Here’s a list from our consultants on how to feel confident on the day.

Types of interview:
Retailers - you are advised to visit the actual store where the vacancy is and you may be asked to prepare a S.W.O.T. analysis. Even if you are not required to do this it would be beneficial for you to informally go through this process for yourself, it will certainly help you sound knowledgeable and confident in interview.
Designers - you should add pages to your portfolio that are relevant to the company you hope to join if your portfolio does not already represent their sector of the market.
Entry Level Positions in Buying & Merchandising - you certainly need to brush up on your maths (ratios, percentages and fractions, without a calculator) so you are able to pass any maths test you are asked to take.
We want to make sure you have the best chance of securing a second interview or offer, so if in doubt ask us!
