Interview Overview

Interviewers are continually reviewing and improving their interview process including which questions they ask but their primary goal is to discover more about you - to see the real you behind the CV. Use the interview forum below to chat about interviews with other people and get answers from our experts.

Bear in mind that most people involved in interviewing are either passionate about their company or have a lot of experience at the company.  The company is looking to make sure that you have the skills required, have some common sense, the ability to learn and most of all passion in what you do and ideally in what they do.

They also want to know that you'll fit in - that you'll be able to work with others, that you understand yourself and thus have the ability to understand those around you.  After all of that, they then want to measure levels of various traits such as focus, communication skills, team-working skills, problem solving skills, leadership skills, conflict-resolution skills, creativity, time-management and planning skills amongst others!  

The important thing to remember here about skill-levels is that it's impossible for everyone to have high levels of each, but in your interview you should aim to demonstrate how you capitalise on your strengths and minimise your weaknesses.  You can minimise your weaknesses through training, past experience, team-work (i.e. getting your colleagues to help in areas you are weak), and just generally being more self-aware.  The more self-aware you are, the more you'll be aware not only of your own strengths & weaknesses but also those of others around you.  This will make you more attractive to employers.
