Preparing for your Interview

Preparation is the key! Whether it be a face-to-face, telephone or a web-based format you will get the best out of your interview and give yourself the best possible chance if you prepare thoroughly.

The information you’ve been given prior to your interview should help you to prepare. Apart from date, time and venue, you can expect to receive details about the interview format, name of the interviewer(s), if a presentation is required or discussion topics and any other background information.

Make sure that you do your research:

  • Have you visited the company’s website?
  • Do you know what its mission and vision are?
  • Do you know what the company does, who their customers are, how big it is and who its competitors are?
  • Have you searched for the latest news about the company?
