Firstly, this stuffs does not guarantee interview success.

BUT, one mental strategy that really helped me was taking 100% responsibility for the result of my application.

By doing this, you can liberate yourself from the belief that you're not in control.

Do Your Research

Do Your Research

Once you've gotten to this point, it's time to prepare.

First, research, research, research. Do everything in your powers to know the most you can about the business.

This way, you'll never run out of things to say in the interview.

You can never do "enough" research

If you're at the interview stage, we can assume you have already done this.

However, you can never do "enough" research.

Ensure that you are well versed on the company's locations, culture and values, long term objectives and recent news.

Imagine Some Role Play

As research is a never-ending process, nothing comes "after" it.

However, after thinking about research, it's time think about the interview itself - who is interviewing you?

This is critical, as you can tailor your responses to the people asking you questions.

LinkedIn Research

If you know your interviewers, look them up on social media.

Open LinkedIn and see what they've been liking/commenting on recently. Gain an insight into what they like and what inspires them.

Three Things To Remember

Three Things To Remember

With research and interviewer prep complete, it's time to mentally prepare.

My best interviews were the ones where I did these three things:

1. Treated the interviewers as my friends.

2. Carefully listened to every single word they said.

3. Was brutally honest.

Be Friendly

Be Friendly

Treating the interviewers as your friends is crucial.

It mitigates the affects of imposter syndrome, relaxes your nerves and allows you to show off your personality.

Treating your interviewers as enemies will do the opposite.

Listening is an underrated superpower.

If you can be a good listener, it will show that you care. Listen carefully to the questions and the body language which accompanies them.

This will give you the best insight as to how to answer them.

And finally, honesty is the best policy.

In the interviews which I tried to be somebody I'm not, I was unsuccessful. I noticed this quickly.

If you stick to answers which are boring and pre-rehearsed, the interviewers will switch off.

Don't be afraid of your personality.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
