Preparation For The Interview

As the interviewer will be comparing your attributes with those of other applicants, preparation is essential if you are to present yourself successfully. Prepare yourself in the following ways:

  • Obtain background information about the organisation. Find out about: -Its structure and range of activities
  • What products and services it offers its customers and where its main offices are situated; and
  • What kinds of jobs are available, the growth rate during the last few months, plans for expansion and major policies.
  • Try to find out more about the job being offered, and the tasks and responsibilities involved.
  • Prepare replies to predictable questions such as:
  • Why have you applied for this position?
  • What salary would you expect?
  • Why do you want to work for this organisation?
  • What do you have to offer?
  • Be prepared to ask questions of your own. Take a brief note of these to the interview to refresh your memory if necessary.
  • Take a copy of the original advertisement (if applicable), a copy of your application and any written references to the interview. You might consider taking examples of significant projects completed during your course.
