Laura Smith, candidate marketing executive for Milkround, said that many candidates think about how best to present themselves and what questions they may face, but neglect the most fundamental things.
She pointed out that thinking about the company's values shows that applicants have "gone the extra mile" and understand how they are the best person to work in that environment.
"It's all about working out what works for you, what your skills are, what you can bring out in yourself and ultimately what you're not good at. Don't go and apply for jobs you're not suited to," Ms Smith said.
In an interview, people should not be scared to think about what they want to say, but should also avoid the temptation to rush their answers, the expert advised.
