You will have a PREP (Prepare, Review, Evaluate & Perfect) meeting with an expert consultant prior to your interview with a prospective employer to make sure you are fully prepared, giving you the best chance of success.
“Take time to research and understand the history, cultural values and ethos of the business you are interviewing for - if they match yours then tell the interviewer and explain why. It is very powerful to show how your values align with theirs. Always close the interview by asking if the interviewer has any reservations about you. This is a great opportunity to overcome any initial objections and demonstrates your confidence and interest in the role.”
All about Your Interview
Prior to a face-to-face interview, you may have to complete a few other phases that could include a phone interview, practical assessment and competency test. Whatever part of the process it is, ensure you are appropriately prepared. Over the years, we have helped thousands of people through their application processes.
Having answers ready for questions that you expect to be asked is a good step to being prepared, but it’s not the whole package. How to prepare for an interview can also include:
- What to bring
- Coming up with questions to ask
- Body language
Preparing for an interview is crucial; always find the time, you could end up regretting it for a long time otherwise.
In the most basic terms, a strength-based interview focuses on what you enjoy doing, rather than what you are capable of doing, like in a competency-based interview.
An interview is the opportunity to present yourself in the best possible way to a prospective employer. It is necessary that you head into any interview fully prepared.
You’ve decided the time has come to get a new job. For whatever reason, whether you want a new challenge, or a new experience, or indeed a new career altogether, you are ready to make the jump and begin the (sometimes) laborious task of a job search.
