Good Interview :




LAST-MINUTE PREPARATION TIPS - YOU MUST KNOW


First Impression


At its core, a good interview is really about making a positive first impression. All that dressing professionally, arriving on time and coming prepared won’t matter if you seem arrogant and self-absorbed. Carry yourself with a confidence - your positive, professional attitude won’t go unnoticed. However, if you feel that the interview is going south, it doesn’t hurt to ask if it’s possible to reschedule. Be polite and considerate of the big favor you are asking of your interviewer. After all, the worst that could happen is you don’t get the job. Better luck next time!


Interview Preparation


An invitation for an interview shows that, on paper, you are the right person required by the organisation for the vacant position. In fact, it is estimated that 80% of candidates are rejected at the application stage so you are really more than three quarters of the way towards getting the job!


Larger organisations will have interviewers who are often personnel professionals or who are trained and experienced interviewers, so expect the interview to be very structured to obtain the maximum from you. In smaller firms you are more likely to be interviewed by a partner who may not be a trained interviewer. If you are confronted by a bad interviewer you will have to work hard to use the questions as a means of conveying the points you wish to make. It can be a good idea to try to steer the conversation towards the topics you have particular strengths in, highlighting your good points.


There are several different types of interview / questioning techniques.


The straight forward chronological interview, where you are asked questions around your CV / Application form


Criterion referenced interviews where you will be asked to give examples of how you meet their criteria e.g., examples of teamwork, negotiating, leadership


The off-the-wall question where you might be asked some bizarre questions….This is to see if you can think on the spot and how creative / logical you are.


The pressurised interview where your views will be challenged (or even ridiculed) and you might feel like you are being goaded into an argument. If this happens to you do not lose your cool, it is to test how you react under extreme pressure and to see if you can hold your own without starting a fight or being reduced to tears.
