Interviews can be a very daunting experience, but don't panic! CV-Library has provided you with some job interview tips to help you perform at your best.
The key to preparing for a job interview, to making you feel as confident as possible, is to know everything you can about the company, including past history, product or services and potential future of the company. Re-read your application and analyse potential job interview questions you could be asked. It is always a good idea to prepare some of your own questions. This will reflect your interest in the company.
The aim of the interview is to justify how you are suitable for the vacancy and what skills you have to offer. Try to relate your answers to real life experiences and show how you have learnt to overcome problems along the way. Remember to stick to the truth – as they will ask probing questions and you don't want to be caught out!
Always dress smart and ensure you arrive promptly for the interview. Tardiness will not be taken lightly, so ensure you know the precise location. At the interview itself you must be positive about yourself and your abilities, but do not waffle.
Below are some typical job interview questions that you may be asked. Carefully think of some answers to these questions so that you are fully prepared for your interview.
If you feel the interview did not go as well as expected, you can always follow up with a thank you response.
If you are unsuccessful in your interview, remain positive and ask for some informative feedback. This will be useful in your next interview as you can be careful not to make the same mistakes.
Congratulations on your new job role! Ensure you have accepted the vacancy before handing in your notice. You will be expected to work a notice period of usually two weeks or a month.
