Getting ready for that all important interview

Posted on January 18, 2018 at 10:51 am

So you have applied for a job and had a call or a letter inviting you to attend an interview, so what do you do next? Firstly you need to make sure that you can attend the interview and make any arrangement such as child care, time off your current job etc. Once this is in place you need to know exactly how you are going to get to and from the interview, especially if you don’t drive. If you are going to be going by train, then ideally you should have a backup plan in case the trains are cancelled or delayed.

The next thing to consider is the actual interview its self. Have a read through your CV and cover letter and highlight any areas which you think they may question you on such as a gap in employment or an additional qualification you gained and also any parts that you want to expand upon with them. Make a note of any questions you may need to ask such as working hours, salary etc and perhaps have it all typed up for you to take in with you.

When choosing what to wear, always go slightly over dressed rather than under dressed. Even if you are applying for a job where you will be dressed in overalls, still turn up for the interview in smart dress.
