  3. 3. ARE YOU PREPARED FOR INTERVIEW? LET’S KNOCK THEM FOR SIX OR.. SEVEN! Do you know how many kinds of interviews there are? The main seven are: 1. The Phone or Skype Interview 2. The Informal Interview 3. The Structured Interview 4. The One-to-One Interview 5. The Test Interview 6. The Presentation Interview 7. The Panel Interview www.cvspecialist.org.uk
  4. 4. ITS ALL ABOUT INTERVIEWS! THE SKYPE INTERVIEW www.cvspecialist.org.uk Skype is quickly becoming the number one resource for interview selection. Your first interview may be telephone or skype based. This helps recruiter’s sift out time-wasters and no hopers. If they use a video link they may test your presentation as well as your communication and organisation skills so do look your best when you know you are having a skype interview. Remember and have a copy of your CV in front of you to refer to and a pen and paper handy so you can make notes. Switch off distractions. Ensure the room is quiet and there is no background noise. If you have kids ask someone to help keep them quiet and out of sight whilst you are on the phone.
  5. 5. ITS ALL ABOUT INTERVIEWS! THE INFORMAL INTERVIEW www.cvspecialist.org.uk Remember there are always exceptions to the rule. Always look smart for interview. 1. Even if you attending an informal interview you should almost always dress up for it. 2. Companies like to think that you are smartly dressed even when you are being informal. They like to think you will live up to their standards and company brand. If you do not, and the recruiter, Director or CEO has arranged to take you to lunch or dinner, as sometimes is the case, then this could be detrimental.
  6. 6. ITS ALL ABOUT INTERVIEWS! THE ONE TO ONE INTERVIEW 1. At a one to one interview you may be asked to fill out some forms, sometimes this is done at reception at others in the office. Did you remember to take a pen and notepad with you as well as a copy of your CV? 2. Do not encroach the recruiter’s personal space. 3. Ask open ended questions. 4. Listen and if a question is not clear – ask to clarify – it shows good communication. 5. If you are given coffee ensure it is not in a place where you are likely to knock it over. 6. Remember, recruiters are people too and can sometimes have off days. 7. Praise the company and not the recruiter otherwise they may not be able to live up to what they have said and dismiss you because of it. www.cvspecialist.org.uk
  7. 7. ITS ALL ABOUT INTERVIEWS! THE TEST INTERVIEW 1. Although the majority of test interviews may be done individually, you may be tested alongside one or even a few others. Occasionally this may cover team-building skills, but more often than not group tests are done in front of individual computers or work-stations. 2. Interviewers do not always tell you if you will be tested alongside others; so be prepared. 3. Remember to take any tools you may need like a pen, pencil, note-paid, this will help you come across as well organized. 4. Test interviews can be part of another interview or as an interview on its own. www.cvspecialist.org.uk
  8. 8. ITS ALL ABOUT INTERVIEWS! THE PRESENTATION INTERVIEW 1. For some sales positions, finance and a few others you may be asked to deliver a Presentation at interview within a few minutes notice. 2. This is to help evaluate how you think on your feet and how you would “fit in” with the company culture should you have to fill the shoes of someone else without warning. 3. For some other positions you may be asked in advance to deliver a PowerPoint or other Presentation at interview. Some companies will give you a topic to base it on. This will help them assess your organization abilities; your skills in researching and resourcing and your skills in communication. 4. If you are unsure whether or not they would like a PowerPoint Presentation and if so, what to base it on, you can always call them and ask. Good communication is the key to many roles. www.cvspecialist.org.uk
  9. 9. ITS ALL ABOUT INTERVIEWS! THE PANEL INTERVIEW 1. For some positions, you may be asked to attend a Panel Interview. 2. This is not only so each of them can evaluate your skills but, it also helps them assess how you speak to, and manage in front of a group of strangers. Are you calm and positive, or all over the place? 3. How do you react? Can you acknowledge all of them or do you focus on one person in particular? 4. Do you come across as a professional who knows what he is talking about?
