Congratulations on your interview, your RGB Network consultant will be here to support you all the way through the process. However, here are a few things you should and shouldn’t do to make sure that you're the stand out candidate.
Practical interview tips
Your consultant will give you a description of the job you are being interviewed for, who you are being interviewed by, the location and time of your interview and details of the interview process. We would also recommend you:
- Look through the company’s and any parent company’s websites
- Search the internet for other company related news
- Make notes of projects, working practices or news that specifically interest you
- Know your interviewers by researching their career history on their website or LinkedIn
- Prepare for answers for their potential questions
- Have a relevant projects list or portfolio of work you have completed
- Expect questions related to any project you have described in your CV or portfolio
- Have good questions to ask your future employer
- To highlight specific skills think of ways you can show that capability through previous experiences
- Always thank your interviewer for their time and let them know you are interested
- Be clear and concise in your answers and allow an interviewer to ask more information if required
- Take your passport (or right to work in the uk), original qualification certificates and driving licence
Things we wouldn’t recommend
Having a huge number of years experience within the RGB Network team we can also give you tips on what not to do including:
- Don’t be scruffy or late, you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression
- Don’t leave any mobile devices on
- Don’t forget who you are seeing or which job you are applying for
- Don’t take examples of work with mistakes on
- Don’t take a uncharged laptop or forget your charger
- Don’t criticise former employers or work colleagues
- Don’t lie or hugely exaggerate your skills
Remember an interviewer will be asking themselves two questions
- Are you right for this role and this company?
- Is this role and company right for you and your career?
If you can assure your interviewer that the answer to both of these questions is yes, you are likely to be successful.
