Practice Interview Questions

Before attending an interview its important to do as much research on the company before arrival, a good way to do this is to normally look on their website, if you are working through a recruiter ask them for as much information about the position as possible.

Not all interviews are going to be the same, it’s depends on the company and the position you are applying for but there is a good chance you will be asked some questions in a sit down ‘chat’ with the Manager, Owner or Head of department.

Here are some examples of potential questions you may get asked, use these as a practice (may ask a friend or family member to pretend to be the interviewer?) and try and think of a good answer for each one, this way you will feel more confident and prepared which will show in the interview and give you a better chance to success!

Good luck for your interview!

Stay calm and smile!
