Interview guidance

Competent and confident

Companies and recruitment agencies are looking for energetic, motivated and highly organised people who work well as part of a professional team. So the interview is where you get the chance to market yourself, demonstrate your value and explain you are the ideal candidate for the job.

Getting through the job interview process successfully requires preparation and planning.

Do your homework

Find out as much as you can about the post, employer and the industry. If you have been selected by an agency, they should be able to offer you information and guidance. Don’t be afraid to ask.

First impressions count

Dress smartly and appropriately for the post you are applying for. If you are not sure, ask the agency. And be punctual.

Be prepared

Have copies of your documentation with you, including an up to date CV, copies of your certificates and licences and letters of recommendation.
