Going on an Interview with a Potential Employer

  • Be sure you know where the interview will be held and allow enough time to arrive promptly
  • If you encounter any problems, 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 about the position before going for interview. Interviewers will always ask 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 not 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 of where your previous experience will have helped in being able to apply for this new position
  • 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
