Before The Interview

Ensure you have researched the company interviewing you. With the help of the internet, you should be able to obtain plenty of corporate information, product/services details and current news articles on most organisations. Many employers place particular importance on this and view it as a good indicator and suitability of a potential applicant.

Rehearse potential interview questions: as well as those relating to job moves and relevant experience be sure you can articulate why you are interested in this particular role, with this particular employer and how it will fit with your career ambitions.

Ensure you are well briefed (where applicable) by the recruitment consultancy that is representing you. They should be able to tell you the format of the interview, something about the personalities you will be meeting and where interviewees have succeeded/failed with their client in the past.

Allow plenty of time for travel to the interview. Aim to arrive with 10-15 minutes to spare.

Try to schedule the interview at a time that is unlikely to need to be changed or cancelled at the last minute.

 

During The Interview

Always welcome the interviewer with a firm handshake, direct eye contact and a smile.

Be conscious of the environment you have entered – new building, busy reception, chaotic environment – all these facilitate the initial 'small talk'.

Ensure you are clear and concise when answering questions and be aware that you will be asked for examples to back up the statements/claims you make during the interview.

Remain open, positive and honest. Interviewers are looking for the 'real' you, so avoid telling them what you think they want to hear.

After The Interview

Analyse where you performed well and, equally importantly, which questions caught you out.

Where appropriate, provide feedback to the recruitment consultancy involved in the appointment.

If invited for another interview, try and find out where you need to score better.

If unsuccessful after an interview do your best to find out why. The feedback will help next time.
