Ok my lovely’s! I know we are a new blog and its all-very exciting, but lets get to business. To make this a complete guide to the universe, we need to cover the boring stuff too. But fear not, nothing is boring on this blog! We can work through this together. That’s right… the dreaded collage interview. Now, we are in the same boat as you, Sweaty palms, blank minds and butterfly’s in the not so distant future. Some quick tips for you.
1) BREATHE!! There is nothing worse than the pre- interview jitters. You will be surprised how well ten slow breaths do the trick. Get that oxygen to your brain, and steady your self. You will come across a lot better if you don’t throw up on their shoes (trust me it happens)
2) I know the next one is very cliché, but its true. Be your self! Remember that you have qualities that people love about you. Draw them out and show them off. The interviewers want to see that you are a real person not a robot.
3) Believe it or not, the interviewers don’t have hearts of stone and spend their spare time thinking of ways to trip you up. They want you to succeed! From the moment you walk in they are practically throwing you opportunities to prove your self. ONE WORD ANSWERS ARE NOT ACCEPTIBLE!! Don’t be afraid to go off on one, especially if you are passionate about something they have asked. If they ask "Do you (I dunno...) like to read?" You wouldn't reply with " yeah... sometimes, if I can be bothered." You say "Hell yeah! I love to read. Romance, thrillers, fantasy etc... my favourite authors are blah blah blah" you get the point.
Hope this helps settle some nerves. Good luck to everyone!
