Well, Canon is looking for someone to fill a very unique position as it begins its search for the ultimate storyteller.

One lucky person will spend a year chasing summer across the globe in order to identify 365 inspiring stories, to help rectify the fact that the art of storytelling is getting lost in a social media feed cluttered with drunken night out snaps, selfies and hot dogs or legs holiday snaps.

Look, there are very few people who don't feel nervous at the prospect of a job interview.

Even if you're confident in your knowledge, experience and skillset, you're still attempting to sell yourself in a pressurised enviroment, and Lord knows that's not always easy.

They say a good CV will get you in the door, but a good interview will get you on the payroll, so preparing for that all-important meeting is absolutely paramount.

If you've recently been called to interview, it's now time to check out our top five tips to overcome nerves and show that interviewer what you're made of.

1. Research the company

Never, ever, ever go into an interview without a clear understanding of the company's goals and objectives.

Trying to bluff your way out of a question about the organisation's history or winging a response on their general aims will be a massive red flag for any interviewer.

You can't be guaranteed they'll always ask, but being able to slip your knowledge in during the conversation will rack up serious Brownie points.

2. Research the interviewer

If you have been given the name of your interviewer, the next step is to check them out on LinkedIn.

Not only will it help you put a face to a name, but it will give you an insight into the values and qualities they rate as both an employee and employer.

And hey, you may have something in common which you can mention if the opportunity arises in the interview.

3. Know your job spec inside out

An interview is your opportunity to show a potential employer that you, put simply, are the solution to their problem.

And the easiest way to do this is by addressing the various aspects of the job spec, and highlighting the various ways you can fulfil them.

Attending an interview without having a clear idea of the role required of you will make for a pretty short interview. ( And not in a good way)

4. Prepare typical responses

Thankfully, most interviews follow a pretty typical pattern which means you can calm your nerves by preparing a list of questions they're likely to ask you.

Do not, however, learn any responses off by heart because – given the pressure of the moment – you may lose track and end up confusing both yourself and your potential employer.

Make some key points around standard questions, and go from there,

Prepare real-life examples

It's become more and more common for employers to ask you to draw on real-life examples in order to bolster and support your claims.

Being asked to provide examples when you don't have any prepared is a nightmare in anyone's language, so make sure you're sorted on this front.

Consider times you solved a problem for a employer or client, or recall incidents where your skillset remedied an issue, and communicate them clearly while allowing your interviewer to ask questions about it.

And finally….

Remember that your interviewer will expect nerves, and will give you time to relax before you get properly started.

Your interviewer wants you to be good because it makes their life easier, so keep that in mind throughout.

Take your time when answering the questions. There is no rush, so don't rap your answers!

Accept a glass of water – you will need it!

Wear an outfit you  feel confident and comfortable in – it matters more than you might think!

Only do what feels natural. Yes, you may have heard that being more animated with your hands makes you look more enthusiastic, but if it distracts you from answering the questions properly then really, what was the point?!

Don’t let changes in the interview set-up throw you. Your knowledge and skills remain the same!

Now, go get 'em, girl.

You’ve bagged the interview for the job of your dreams. Now all you have to do is nail it. Easy, right? Not for everyone.

If you find it difficult to get yourself across the way you want, here are some tips that might help you:

If you feel comfortable, you’ll act comfortable
We all want to look the part for an interview. But if heels and a trouser suit just aren’t you, you won’t feel at ease. Wear something smart and comfy – here are some perfect ideas for you! 

Prepare but don’t overthink
There’s a difference between preparing for an interview and overthinking an interview. If you have bagged the interview, you already have the qualification necessary for the job. Now, all you have to do is research the company and the role and come up with why you are the best person for the job. When it’s downtime, don’t think about the interview, you’ll get nervous and flustered and by the time D-day comes, you'll be a wreck. 

Slow and steady wins the race
You don’t have to go in there and talk as fast as you can. That’s what a nervous person does You’re not nervous, remember? Take things steady and slowly and think things through before answering. If you are someone who gets that shaky, dry voice when you’re nervous, ask for a glass of water you can sip when you need to.

Be yourself
If we’ve heard it once, we’ve heard it a thousand times. But there’s a reason for that! Don’t be afraid to show off your personality. Employers are much more likely to remember you if you show who you are rather than a stiff, question-answering robot.  



Most of us have a LinkedIn profile but very few of us really know how to use it to its full potential.

However, if you are on the job hunt, here are some great tips you can use to get your dream job:

It is more than a normal CV
LinkedIn is a great way to show off your skills so avoid clichés and try to be a little bit creative with it. You can upload videos, presentations websites so use it to its full capacity.

Make yourself searchable
When recruiters or companies are looking for candidates they usually just do a quick keyword search. Make sure you use your headline to its full potential and make yourself stand out in searches.

Follow the companies you want to work for
If you have a dream to work for a particular company follow them. This way you will be updated if someone leaves or if they are hiring. You might also discover someone you already know is working there – connect with them and see where it takes you.

If you don’t show off yourself, nobody else is.
