Interview Tips

So why do you want this job? Just one of the many questions you may hear at your next interview. But don’t let the nerves get to you and ruin your chance to Exchange your job. Just by preparing your answers to some of the most common questions asked and some all important homework on the company, you will be surprised what the difference can make!

More often than not, interview questions are based around four areas.

  • Things about you…
  • Things that you know and are good at…
  • Why you want the job…
  • And the ever tricky……competency based questions!

Things about you

Probably one of the most important parts on an interview as you get to sell yourself. Dazzle them with your personality. Interviewers want to find out more about you, your experience and especially your personality. Here are some of the questions you might hear, so try and plan ahead and think of some good answers.

  • Tell me about yourself
  • Describe yourself
  • Tell me about your strengths and weaknesses
  • Where do you see your future

Things that you know and are good at…

Now the interview steps up a gear and they will want to find out more about your skills and experience. The interviewer will want to find out if you can actually do the job, so remember to brush up on any technical aspects of your experience and what your good at. Some of the questions that you might hear are:

  • Tell me about your current job
  • What skills will you bring to the company
  • What don’t you like about your current job

Why you want the job

A job interview isn’t just about you, it’s a time to see if you like them and say why you want to work with the company. This is the time to put your serious face on as they want to see that you are committed and enthusiastic about wanting to work there. Brush up on the company history, look at the who’s who on the website and read up on any news articles that are available. You can really impress them with your knowledge and it shows real dedication. Some of the questions you might hear are:

  • What other jobs have you applied for
  • Why do you want to work here
  • What can you tell me about the company
  • Would you like to develop in the company

Competency based questions

Now this is the tricky bit of the interview. These questions can be used in either first or second interviews and basically involves questions to see if you really know what you’re on about and can you prove it! These questions may involve you describing what you would do in certain situations based upon what you have done before. Just remember to keep your answers to the point and don’t get distracted; you could end up answering a completely different question…… so pay attention! Some of the questions you might hear are:

  • Tell me about a time you had to deal with a difficult situation
  • Tell me about when you had a falling out with a work colleague
  • How would you make sure your boss knows you have a great idea
