Interview Techniques

So, your 'killer CV' has won you an interview. Now your aim is to get the job, or at least get to the next interview stage.

Key to being a shining star at interviews is Enthusiasm, Preparation and then more Preparation! This page will give you tips and help you plan for some of the questions you may be asked.

What the Interviewer will be asking themselves:

  • What is their body language telling me? (i.e. do they look bored, interested, defensive etc?)
  • Are they clean and well presented?
  • Have they prepared for the interview?
  • Are they asking me intelligent questions?
  • Have they found out about us before coming to the interview?
  • Do they understand their own figures?
  • Are they being honest with me?
  • Are they waffling and boring me?

What you should be asking yourself:

  • Am I neat and tidy and looking businesslike?
  • Am I relaxed and being positive about my achievements?
  • Am I listening properly?
  • Have I got answers to the '6 Special' questions?
  • Am I well versed in what this company does?
  • Have I got some intelligent questions to ask them?
  • Am I going to be a good personality fit for this company?
