Interview tipsCongratulations! You have been asked to come in for an interview. Here are some tips to help you prepare.
Focus on your achievements
We want to know what success you have achieved in previous jobs or during your studies. Be specific. Think about and write down specific examples that describe how you have applied your current skills. We may ask you to share those examples with us.
How do you handle difficult situations?
We are also interested in your challenges and tough times that youve had at work or in your studies, and what you did to overcome those difficulties. We may ask you what you would do if conflict arises or how you would deal with challenges such as personal stress or uncooperative team members.
Why should we hire you?
Be prepared to sell yourself to us! Put yourself in the hiring managers shoes and think about what he/she needs to know about you, in order to decide to hire you.
Ask your own questions
Surprisingly, most people don't take advantage of the chance to ask questions of their interviewer. Dont miss out on this opportunity to find out more about the position. It is important for you to ask questions - not just any questions, but those relating to the job, the company and the industry.
What to wear
Our business dress is professional but business casual. Dont let your clothes speak louder than you do, let your skills and knowledge make the impression.
