Interviewing for your dream design job is exciting – but can be daunting. It’s vital you stand out from the crowd and take opportunities to show off your creative talent – here’s our top tips for success!

Don’t wait. Sometimes the right vacancy won’t be advertised, and you’ll feel like you’re passing the time waiting for the perfect opportunity. But don’t! Make contact with dream employers, share your portfolio far and wide, attend networking events, make friends and get involved in the sector. The more contacts you make, chances are you’ll be offered exclusive opportunities…

Make the interview count. Don’t forget the basis; do your research into the organisation you’re interviewing with, dress to impress and absolutely make sure you’re on time! Ten minutes early is the ideal time to arrive – this gives you a chance to have a few moments before the interview to prepare.

Be bold. Don’t be shy, and don’t be afraid to show off your skills – talk through your portfolio with passion and find opportunities to explain your skill sets and experiences clearly. Including software packages you’ve used.

Most importantly, be yourself! Let your personality and passion shine through!
