Fail to Prepare… Prepare to Fail

Just as the title of this article suggests, if you fail to prepare for your upcoming interview, you might find yourself in troubled waters. To help you, we have put together some pointers that will prove useful:

Research the Company

Visit the company’s website (if they have one) and note some important changes i.e. new branch openings, acquisitions etc. Use these as reasons to join the company and relate them to your own experiences.

Know your CV

Bring a copy of your CV to the interview, but don’t read from it. Know what you have submitted and use the CV you bring as a reference point to direct employers.

Learn the Job Spec

Remember what you applied for and take note of buzzwords listed. Incorporate these into your answers to WOW employers.

Practice STAR questions

Have a look through your work experience and note some examples that relate to the position. Practice the STAR technique to add structure.
