Interview Preparation & Tips

Interviews can be stressful but remember the interviewer has seen your CV and chosen to invite you in to see them. This means you are there for a good reason, the company is looking to recruit someone with your skills. Here are some useful tips concerning the interview stage:
  • Before you get to any interview the most important aspect is to make sure you are fully prepared. This means you have got to do your homework on the company. This can include getting on the telephone for a copy of the company's annual report to having a look at their website to making sure you are fully aware of the different areas they work in, where they are heading and who's who within the company
  • Make sure you dress appropriately for the interview, you should look professional and well groomed
  • Always make sure you know where you are going and that you leave plenty of time to get to the interview including adding in extra time for eventualities beyond your control. Arriving late for an interview does not make a good impression
  • On initial greeting make sure you emanate energy; employers want healthy workers who can work hard so greet the interviewer with a smile, a firm handshake and always look them in the eye
  • Listen attentively to questions and make sure you don't answer with a simple yes or no. Make sure you go into detail with your answers and that you get across to the interviewer your skills and why you would be an asset to the company
  • Ask questions about the company and the job, what you would be expected to do, where you would fit into the overall structure and how they see your career developing
  • Interviews are a two way process and although the company is interviewing you, make sure that you come out of the interview with enough information to make up your mind whether you want the job
  • Make sure you sound positive and enthusiastic about the job and company throughout the interview. Companies hire people who want to work for them
  • At the end of the interview ask a question like "From our interview today do you see any reason why I wouldn't be able to do the job?" or "Can you tell me if there will be a next stage and if so have I made it through?" These are good closing questions at the end of the interview that will tell the interviewer you are interested in the position
  • Always thank the interviewer for their time and for the opportunity they have given you in interviewing you for the position
