Feeling nervous in an interview is perfectly normal; just don’t let your nerves overpower your interview. It’s therefore also helpful to use a few hypothetical, or problem-solving questions. What are your goals for the department? Proper hygiene and a tidy appearance are important. When answering behavioural interview questions, be sure your answer includes: Steps you took to address or respond to the situation The tasks that needed to be completed If you do not understand the question, ask for clarification. Describe a situation in which you took the initiative to change a process or system and make it better, how did you identify the problem? How will other interviewers react?
