Interview tips


“The interview is your opportunity to really highlight your skills, experience, strengths and how you can successfully perform the role”*

 “Do your research about the company, understand the role and visualise yourself performing the duties of the position, thinking back to your own experience and what you have to offer”*

“It is good to have at least 2 or 3 examples prepared that you can think of which demonstrate 3 of the requirements for what makes a suitable candidate”*

“When talking about your strengths, back yourself up with examples and prove to the interviewer you have demonstrated in past roles application of your strengths”*

“There is no point making up something and then being caught out by the employer. If you don’t know something, say that you don’t know. Don’t lie.”*

“Your first impression is everything. Arrive at least 15 minutes early. Dress professionally and respectful. “*

“If being interviewed by a panel, make sure that you maintain eye contact with everyone, keeping your main contact with the person asking you the question”*

“If you left on bad terms for your last employer, avoid saying anything negative about them. It doesn’t look professional and drops the conversation to a negative level which is what you don’t want*

“The interview is your chance to really draw attention to your skills, experience, strengths and how you can successfully perform the position”*

“Try and do as much research about the company, as you can, learn about their industry and even better, find out about the latest developments”*

“If you don’t understand the question being asked of you, don’t be afraid to ask them to clarify the question”

 “If you don’t know something, avoid making up an answer, but rather tell the truth and what understanding or similar knowledge you do have”*

Why should your CV be tailored for a specific role, field of expertise or industry?


Targeted job applications are usually more effective that those which are general and not specific. If the employer is looking for a potential employee with specific skills then it would be wise for a job applicant to have a specific resume. For example, allow me to illustrate: An Investment Banker in Sydney would not normally apply by submitting their resume and covering letter for a job at a child care facility and neither would a Child Care Worker in Melbourne apply for a job at a bank by submitting their CV to perform specialist banking duties. The reason why is that both jobs and industries are vastly different and irrelevant. The target market for the investment banker are jobs in the banking and related environments. A Banker could work for a local, community bank or a large corporate bank. A person with skills in child care could work for an office with a small approved creche facility or a local child care centre. So it is about applying for tailored and relevant roles.
