Preparation is key when it comes down to interviewing and here are some tips on how to prepare for the difficult questions that are asked at every interview!
- Think about recent situations that show favourable behaviours or actions around customer service, team work, initiative, planning etc.
- Take the time to prepare short descriptions of each situation so if you are asked for these you have done your homework.
- Be sure that each example you provide to the interviewer has a beginning, a middle and an end (situation, task, action and result).
- Make sure that the outcome of the story reflects favourable on you as an individual!
- Be honest about what you are telling the interviewer- they will very quickly realise if you are making it up.
- Be as specific as you can, don't generalise about several events-give detailed accounts of one event.
- Try to vary your answers; don't take them all from one part of your employment is you can.
