The Purpose of the Interview
For many candidates it's a struggle to even get to the Interview Stage. Because of the anticipation and excitement around actually getting an "interview", most will fail without the proper preparation.
When you're dealing with Building Recruitment, know that we have already done the background work for you by recommending you to our client. We have already put your best foot forward. But when it comes to closing the deal, your performance at the interview is all that matters.
Sometimes, a company may have already made up their mind when they received your information from us. So the interview is just a "confirmation of what they already know".
It’s normal to feel nervous before an interview because you want to do your best. Sometimes the interviewer is just as nervous to meet you. Both people have their expectations and you both want to meet those expectations. If you prepare and practice in advance by researching the company; the role; the industry; there is little chance of failure.
In a technology driven world, we have Google and Social Media networks to assist us with our research into positions, companies, people and industries.
It is important to be clear in your own mind about the skills involved in a role and then prepare yourself for any questions you may have regarding the role.
The interview is the opportunity to present and sell your skills and abilities; describing how you went about delivering your achievements.
