Preparing for a job interview - How to Prepare for a job interview

How to Prepare for a Job Interview

Often regarded as the nerve-wracking element, it’s true that the interview is your chance to prove to a prospective employer that you are capable of performing in a role. However whilst it’s imperative to make sure that you’ve gathered as much information in terms of research as possible, it’s important to remember that an interview should be a two way process, ie an opportunity for you to be able to “try a new employer” for size. For this reason it’s key to try to be yourself and enjoy the exchange of information and aim to get as much out of the meeting as you can.

We’re happy of course to give advice on pre interview research angles, just let us know, although a few basic points are worth remembering:

• The company website is a “must” for key business information; it’s also a good idea to use search engines to identify recent press or product launches.


• If you’re required to undertake aptitude (numeric, verbal, diagrammatic) or psychometric tests, it’s not a bad idea to spend some time on some practice tests – dependent on the type of testing we’d be happy to advise on this.


• If you’re presenting a case study or some information, ensure that you are 100% clear on the task before you undertake it and that you have all the material and information you require. It’s worth double checking what facilities will be available to you on the day – there’s nothing worse than turning up with a just a CD to find that there is no laptop in the room!


• Ask the background of the line manager interviewing you, it’s not only useful from a conversation perspective but can also provide food for thought and discussion when it comes to finding out about the organisation’s progression structure.


• Get a good night’s sleep before your meeting and ensure that you know where you are going and that you leave yourself enough time to arrive comfortably. If you are not sure of your best route feel free to call us or click here for our 'getting to an interview' section.
