    The job involves data analysis and I haven't worked in an environment like it before. I'm pretty good with software, computers and I'm a little analytical and have mild autism.

    Am i being realistic? how can u really do my best at interview?

    Having had a very similar job interview:

    Be prepared to talk about what kind of data analysis you have done in your own life. I talked about training for a marathon and using data from tracking apps and what I achieved.

    Be prepared to talk about what kind of data analysis the company or industry may be doing. e.g. what kind of data might Royal Mail have and how might they use it?

    And make sure you've practiced answers to common questions about your skills and experiences and qualifications. I loosely used the STAR technique.

    Try not to be nervous - it helps to remember that a lot of the time the person interviewing you is as new to this as you are. Answer the questions reasonably, and show a good attitude towards learning anything you might be lacking and you have a good chance.

    I haven't really done much data analyst so I'm getting worried what to say
