GOING ON AN INTERVIEW WITH A POTENTIAL EMPLOYER
It is often cited that it is important to prepare for an interview. At Greycoat Lumleys, we feel it is important to go above and beyond when researching and thinking about your interview. Because we will only ever match you with a client based on your mutual suitability, if you do all the necessary groundwork first, you can feel more comfortable once you are sitting in front of your potential employer.
Some helpful interview tips:
Be sure you know where the interview is being held and allow enough time to arrive promptly
If you encounter any issues, let the person you are meeting, or Greycoat Lumleys, know that you are running late
Talk to your Greycoat Lumleys Consultant to find out as much as you can about the position before attending the interview. Note that interviewers will always ask you why you want to work for them!
Make sure you have all appropriate documents with you. Clients may want to see originals for themselves
Dress appropriately, paying particular attention to details such as your nails and shoes and avoid wearing too much jewellery
Be discreet about your previous employers
Do not ask about packages and remuneration – this can be done with your Greycoat Lumleys Consultant afterwards
Prepare yourself for questions that might be asked. Know your CV and dates
Think of examples where your previous experience will help you demonstrate that you are suitable for your intended role
Even if you have reservations about the role, be positive. You can discuss your concerns with your Consultant after your interview
Be concise and answer questions with confidence. If you do not understand, say so, do not just talk around the subject
Always be polite and thank the interviewer for their time
