  • Practise some interview questions

    Try answering the questions below...

    Tell me about yourself.

    This is a really, really common question, so make sure you have a good answer ready. When you are preparing think about your key hobbies and interests and the personal skills these have taught you.

    Why would you be good in this role?

    This is another common question and an opportunity for you to make yourself stand out. Try and mention any skills you have that they are looking for, and any specific experience you have that is relevant to the job.

    What are your strengths?

    Think about what the company is looking for and also how you can show that you have these strengths. It is not enough to say that you are hard working; think about when have you been able to show that you are in your studies or in you work experience or previous jobs.

    What does the company do?

    This may seem straight forward, but you need to think a little about this question. How does the company make money? Does it offer a product or a service? Who are its main competitors? How big is the company and where are they based?

  • Review your interview

    Whatever happens in your interview you can still learn from your experience, so use our downloadable review sheet. Try and review your interview as soon as possible after you've done it.
