Hi guys kloe here...
As I sit here about to start writing my blog about the stresses we go through for job interview Selena Gomez's "Rise" comes on and it makes me think that all the worrying I did especially the days before my interviews , and how I dealt with the rejection was all worth it and no amount of worrying is needed you need to believe in yourself .
Well I was so nervous about my first interview as I didn't know what to expect and I asked a few of my friends , family and fellow bloggers if they had any tips for me and they really helped so if any of you guys have a job interview soon ask your friends and family as that really helped me . As silly as this may sound TRY and relax and if your like me and all you can think about is your interview then try and do something where your mind will be thinking of anything but your interview for example read a book, I found this took my mind off my interview .
Questions asked at your interview
Don't make the silly choice like me and look on google to see what questions you'll be asked at your interview because I knew once I'd hit the SEARCH button I shouldn't have done that because 1. you might not be asked those questions and 2. every interview is different and so is they job you are applying for , in theory it was a good idea looking but I would advise not to and its good not to know because once I looked I was thinking of what to say , I didn't want to sound rehearsed so I think its best not to think about what they'll ask you and you should take every question / interview as it comes .
Depending on your type of interview is to whether you'll go straight into your interview as my first interview at Topshop I had to design an outfit with a country club theme I remember panicking because I wasn't sure and I don't know a lot about fashion yet (I'm learning) so I winged it and I was kind of thrown because I thought I go straight into my interview , like this just breath and take every situation as it comes .
I was pretty much prepared for my interviews but I was too busy worrying about what I was going to wear and what the interviewer may ask that I forgot to do my research on the company as sometimes they do ask you about the company its good if you know a little bit so again I'd advise to do a bit research just in case .
What to wear / Make up ?
Hmm this was quite difficult for me because I've sent a lot of clothes to Portugal so I had to look for something smart with what I did have , its also depending what the job is for is too to what kind of outfit should go with . Make up wise I decided to go with something subtle so I used light colours as I didn't want a heavy looking make up and I think a more natural make up look is definitely the go to look for interviews .
Overanalysing / Rejection
This is something after the two interviews I went too I was constantly thinking about what I said and what I could of said . Waiting to hear back was the worst part because like me I started doubting my self could I really do this job things like that which didn't help my confidence much . Rejection was one of the things that for anyone is hard but the rejection makes you more wiser and as much as its hard at first it definitely helps . At my interview for Primark I was doubting myself because of my Topshop rejection and I just like my mum said sell your self because anyone can sound amazing on paper and that's what i did and I'm so happy to tell you guys I got the job yay and I have the training day this Saturday which I'm excited about I'll keep you all updated on how it goes.
