Whether it’s your first date or a first interview, you need to prepare by researching. For a date you might to find the perfect location and things you have in common to discuss. However, for an interview you will probably be researching the company, their values and the job you could be doing. If you want to find out more about researching before a job interview, check out our blog here!
For a date or an interview, it doesn’t matter. You’re going to want to dress well to make a good impression. This will mean you need to find out the dress code beforehand to be sure that you will come across well. For an interview this will mean asking the person who has invited in what they would like you to wear. It may vary depending on the job role.
After a date you follow up with the usual, “I had fun, let’s do it again” message. After an interview you want to do something similar letting them know you are definitely interested in working for them and there if they have any questions. If you need some ideas, check out our blog with templates on this here. Even if the interview went badly, it is worth following up to explain that you don’t think you came across as well as you would like.
So remember; you need to prepare, dress well and follow up. If you do these three things then you give any interviews or dates the best chance of success!
