Interview Tips

Preparing for a formal interview is essential. Even though you might appear to be the best candidate on paper, a lack of preparation before the interview can let you down. Most interviews will only last one hour, and you may not get a second chance.

The following guidelines can be seen as the minimum amount of preparation:

1. Know the time and location – plan your journey well in advance and allow yourself plenty of time to overcome the hazards of unforeseen train delays and traffic jams. Under no circumstances should you arrive late. If for any reasons you do get delayed, call your consultant and inform your estimated time of arrival. 

2. Find out about interview format - try and ascertain the format of the interview beforehand. Also find out the names and job titles of individuals who’re going to conduct your interview.  Try checking their profiles on company’s website and/or business networking sites such as Linkedin.

3. Research the company - though we will provide you with as much information as we can, but you are well advised to seek out anything you can about the company. Depending on the role it might be appropriate to concentrate on their products/services, competitors, recent business growth and plans for the future.

4. Do your homework - think about the questions that you are likely to be asked at interview, since some of these can be quite predictable. Then see how you can answers these potential interview questions in most suitable manner.  A proper rehearsal will help ease any apprehension considerably.

5. Dress smartly – since your presentation really matters. Make sure that you are dressed in a business suit (even if casual/ ’dress down’ is allowed). Don’t forget to polish your shoes! Shave/comb hair. Remember, you never get a second chance to make the first impression!

6. Know your own CV - it is amazing how many people fail at interview just because they haven’t read their CV recently. It is important to be able to discuss any aspect of your CV such as why you studied a particular course at university, or the part that you played in a particular project.   

7. Create a good repot – it’s really important that you greet the interviewer(s) by name, with smile and a firm handshake. Throughout the interview maintain eye contact with your interviewer(s) and watch your posture. Don’t waffle and try not to give too many ‘yes’ or ‘no’ replies.

8. Be prepared to ask questions - ultimately the interview is a two way process. The company will want to gauge your level on interest in the role they have. So you should also be prepared to ask questions around various aspects of the role, such as prospects for career development and the corporate culture etc.
