Interview Coaching –
You have gotten this far, now how do you nail it?

Ok so now you have gotten the attention of the hiring manager with your resume and are invited to an interview. This is the time for you to make the good first impression and remember there may not be a second chance.

We have carefully written up a handful of personal advice that we think will be beneficial to all interviewees:

Tipp 1: Prepare yourself

Bring all your documents with you. Be it your CV, qualifications, reference letters, visa grant letters; collate them neatly in a folder so you can refer to them quickly whenever requested. Always remember to bring a pen with you too, you never know when you will be called to sign that employment contract or fill in some forms.

Tipp 2: Investigate and Research

Know who you are dealing with. Learn about the company that you are potentially going to work for, research into the organization by reading their mission statement, annual reports, news articles about them, know the management hierarchy, history and milestones, etc. It will also be helpful if you can pre-empt common questions that will be asked during an interview, the employer wants to know if you are an individual who is prepared or just another laidback employee.

Some possible interview questions:
  • Where do you see yourself in the company in the next 5 years?
  • What are some of your personal achievements?
  • What were your responsibilities in your previous job?
  • Did you face any major challenges and problem from your previous work? How did you deal with them?

Tipp 3: Dresscode

Look in the mirror. Are you dressed for the occasion? Two apples grown from the same tree will generally taste the same; however the apple that is washed and cleaned will be deemed fresher and more delicious than the apple that is covered in dirt. Simple logic behind a simple analogy so take out your jacket, trim your finger nails, have a haircut and look ready for the interview.
