Interviews Tips – for Interviewees
Do as much research as you can about the company in question – products, services, markets, competitors, press cuttings, current activities, priorities.
Assemble hard evidence (make sure it’s clear and concise) of how what you’ve achieved in the past – you need proof, this will put you ahead of those who merely talk about it.
- Make sure your CV is up to date, looking very good and even if already supplied to the interviewer take three with you (one for the interviewer, one for you and a spare in case the interviewer brings a colleague in to the meeting).
Review your personal goals and be able to speak openly about them and how you plan to achieve them.
Ensure you have 2/3 really good reputable and relevant references, and check they’d each be happy to be contacted.
Make sure you’re in an enthusiastic, alert, positive mind-set.
When dealing with questions that put pressure on you or create stress, be confident, credible and constructive (always stress the positives) in your answers. And make sure you prepare.
