Talent HQ - Recruitment specialists offering sought-after jobs in Hertfordshire – gives advice on preparing for interviews

Publish On 27-01-2015 , 9:25 AM

The Talent HQ team – recruitment experts, offering full and part time jobs in Hertfordshire – are always happy to assist with guidance on how to secure that dream job.  This month, we focus on interview preparation. 

Are you looking for full or part time jobs in Hertfordshire?  Do you feel that you are a committed team member or could be if in the right role?  If so, we could help you to find that role and acquire and plan for the interview, giving you all the tools you will need and helping you to feel more confident. 

Things to consider include:

  •  What type of interview is it?  Telephone?  Face-to-face?  Skype or video?  One-to-one or a panel of interviewers? 


Most of the following tips apply to all methods though for telephone or Skype interviews, consider privacy, reception and connection issues.  Remember to fully charge your phone if necessary and for video interviews, check what will be in the shot.
 

  •  What route will you take?  How long is the journey?  Your method of transport?  What time must you leave so you arrive 10 minutes early?  Practise runs can be very reassuring. 
  •  Give thought to your appearance.  If you look professional, you will feel more professional.  Are your shoes polished?  Suit dry cleaned?  Nails manicured?
  •      Consider what you will need.  Take money and a fully-charged mobile phone.  Remember to switch your phone off beforehand.   Have a few copies of your CV with you, the job specification and your own notes so you can use them as cues.  Will you need examples of work or anything else specifically requested?  A pen and notebook may come in handy.  If delivering a presentation, take a copy on a data stick and copies of the slides for handouts.
  • Research the company, the role and current affairs and trends in your job sector.  Use social media, such as LinkedIn for more information on your interviewer and their background. 
  • Contemplate your attributes and what you can bring to the role and the organisation.  By reminding yourself of these, it will help you to believe in yourself. 
  •  Anticipate questions and how you will answer them, especially the more difficult ones, such as: “Describe yourself in three words” or “Who is your role model in life and why?”  Others include: “What are your weaknesses?” and “Where do you see yourself in five years time?”
  •  Prepare some questions to ask at the end of the interview.
  • Practise with someone you trust.  Ask for feedback though don’t be too hard on yourself.
