Preparing for Your Interview
Merry dostala pozvání pozvání na interview, má pochopitelně radost, ale je z toho taky nervozní:
Hi, This is Merry again. It's regarding my journey to get a better job. So now I have got my CV, I've got my covering letter, and I've sent them to the company that I want to work with - and actually I've managed to get an interview with them. This is so exciting but it's kind of a very scary experience - but anyway I'll prepare my best for my first interview.
John Courtis, autor knihy Getting a Better Job, v rozhlasovém interview radí
Emma: John – what can Merry expect when she goes for her interview? And
how best can she prepare?
John: There are two answers to that. First to do things like getting hold of a job
description, second, do lots of research about the company: find out anything,
possibly going round shops and looking at their products - possibly looking at
the press, the financial press.
Also if she can, if there's been an ad, looking at what the company appears to
want. Usually if there is an ad of any kind, they say what they want, what
competencies, what personal skills, what personal characteristics, what
background, languages - lots of things that, if they're any good, they will have
told the candidate beforehand.
Emma: And what kind of questions might she be asked? I mean is there some kind of
structure to the questioning procedure?
John: Well I'd hope that first the interviewer would say: 'This is what the interview
is all about. A good interview means that the interviewer will tell the
candidate what the company, the organisation wants to get out of it. They
aren't interested in what the candidate wants to get out of it – they just want
to get something out of it for their organisation, and if they'll tell the victim
that, it's marvellous, it gives you a better focus. Merry will be better equipped
to present herself properly.
Emma: And the other thing I was going to ask about was clothing. I mean, it's
I think particularly difficult for women to choose. What kind of things should a
woman dress in?
John: Bit of research necessary there. If the organisation belongs to a particular
sector, or a particular dress code is appropriate, it may be that just standing
outside the building the previous day, and seeing what the staff wear
Emma: 'Oh, what a good idea, what a good idea!'
John: If you've got time. Because there's a dramatic difference between places
where everybody's in suits and places where everybody's looking scruffy.
