You go a long way to getting that dream job by preparing well for an interview.
Show you are resourceful and enthusiastic by researching the centre, gaining a general, yet broad understanding of the services offered and philosophy adopted.
While researching the centre you are also looking for specific information relating to the role you are pursuing, as this can provide a great insight to the context of the interview. Prepare questions for the interview that you believe are relevant and demonstrate that you have performed appropriate research on the company.
You should arrive at the interview approximately ten minutes before your scheduled appointment. You should always dress conservatively and appropriately for the role. When it comes time to meet the interviewer you must address them politely and by their correct title.
Be composed, listen to the questions and answer them with confidence - directly and to the point. If at any time you don’t or did not hear the question or do not hear the full question, ask for the interviewer to repeat the question.
Body language is important and the interviewer will be noting your posture, position and eye contact. Endeavour to remain confident at all times even if the interview doesn’t seem to be going well.
If you are given the opportunity to ask questions, this is where your preparation will pay off. Ask only critical and intelligent questions and attempt to leave on a good note. At the end of the interview thank everyone for their time.
After the interview contact Expect A Star to let us know how you went and to discuss any of your concerns about the role.
Just dropping a line to let you know that everything is going great with Daniel and baby Georgie. Georgie is now laughing and chewing her hands, she babbles at me and smiles a lot. I would like to thank you very much for introducing me to Georgie and her family they make me feel like one of their family.
