Interview Tips

What is an interview?

The interview is the opportunity where you can describe your experiences and skills and can get an idea of what is happening with the company. During an interview, an employer's goal is to gather additional information about you that is not provided in your resume and cover letter.

Before the interview

  • Visit the company website, learn about the products, services, and mission.
  • Know your resume inside out and prepare examples of your accomplishments.
  • Bring extra resumes, references, transcripts, certificates, work sameples, etc.
  • Develop and practice personalised interview answers to common, difficult and expected interview questions.

During the interview

  • Be on time for the intervew.
  • Stay relaxed and calm.
  • Greet the interviewer by the name with a firm handshake.
  • Be cooperative and enthusiastic.
  • Maintain eye contact with the interviewer.
  • Use proper English - Avoid slangs.
  • Listen to the entire question before you answer.
  • Refrain from discussing salary or benefits unless the interviewer initiates it.

After the interview

  • Find out from the interviewer when you will hear from them on the interview outcome.
  • Thank the interviewer when you leave and shake hands.
  • Do not be discouraged if the employer does not make an on-the-spot offer.
  • Interviewers will need to interview more candidates before making a decision.

Questions to expect

Tell me more about yourself.

  • This question allows the job seeker to share with the interviewer the most important thing they want to know - "Why should I hire you?"
  • Keep the answer job or skill related.

  • What do you know about the type of work we do?

  • This is your chance to showcase your understanding from the research you have done in preparation for the interview.

  • What is your weakness?

  • Always make this a positive answer.
  • For example, "I have to work on having more patience and giving myself a break, because I always want everything done at once."

  • What are your strengths?

  • A strength can be defined as a combination of knowledge, behaviour, talent and skills that you apply consistently to produce a successful result.
  • The best way to respond is to describe your strengths that directly correlate with the job you are applying for.

  • Why did you leave your last job?

  • Do not speak badly about your previous employer.
  • Answer with a positive statement.
  • For example:
  • Further education.
  • Termination of contract(date).
  • Applying for a more challenging position.
  • Change of profession or area of expertise.
  • Having a chance to work in a larger and more robust organization.
  • Opportunity to work in a more technologically advanced environment.

  • Why have you been unemployed for such a long time?

  • Long and recent periods of unemployment require a properly thought out job interview answer.
  • These gaps in employment can raise concerns in the minds of potential employers about the candidate's reliability and commitment and need to be clarified.
  • Tell the truth. Emphasize that you were looking for a good company where you can settle and make a contribution.

  • Why should we hire you?

  • The best way to respond is to give concrete examples of why your skills and accomplishments make you the best candidate for the job.

  • Do you have references?

  • It is important that you get in touch with your referees and have their name, current address, and contact numbers before the interview.

  • Appearance and Grooming

    The first impression you make on a potential employer is the most important one. The first judgement an interviewer makes is going to be based on how you look and what you are wearing. That's why it's always important to dress professionally for a job interview, even if the work environment is casual.

    • Make sure your interview attire is neat, tidy and appropriate for the type of firm you are interviewing with.
    • Wear conservative colours such as white, navy blue, charcoal grey, or black.
    • Light perfume or cologne.
    • Little or no jewellery.
