Top Tips for Interviews

We’ve put together a few Top Tips to help you with future interviews. These helpful hints will leave a lasting impression with the interviewer.

1. Do your research

Fail to plan, and you plan to fail. You are certain to be asked specific questions about the company, so make sure you've done your homework and check out the company’s website.

2. Practice your answers

Although there is no set format that every job interview will follow, there are some questions that you can almost guarantee will crop up. Here’s just a few:-

  • Why have you applied for this apprenticeship?
  • Give an example of a time when you have coped well under pressure.
  • Apprenticeships mean working full time alongside studying for a qualification. How will you
    prioritise your workload?
  • Give an example of how you have dealt with a difficult situation.
  • What is your understanding of equal opportunities and how it applies to this job?
  • Give an example of a time you have worked independently.
  • Give an example of a time you have worked as part of a team.

3. Look the part

The first impression you make on a potential employer is the most important one. The first judgment an interviewer makes is going to be based on how you look and what you are wearing. That's why it's always important to dress appropriately for a job interview.

4. Stay calm

Good preparation is the key to staying in control. Plan your route, allowing extra time for any unexpected delays, and get everything you need to take with you ready the night before. Remember to speak clearly, smile and remember that your interviewers are just normal people, and they may be nervous too!

5. Ask questions

You should always have some questions for your interviewer to demonstrate your interest in the position. Prepare a minimum of three questions, some of which will give you more information about the job.

Good Luck!!
