Transcript of Interviews
Interviewing each other
Get into pairs. One of you is the manager of a shoe shop. The other is looking for a position as a sales assistant. The interviewee needs to read the information on Sheet 1, and the interviewer needs to read the information and questions on Sheet 2. You have ten minutes to prepare, then ten minutes of the interview.
In groups of four, try to make the highest tower out of newspaper and Sellotape as you can. We will be coming around looking for:
4. Listening skills
What types of interviews are there?
What was good about your interviewee?
Do your research
Keep your CV nearby to remember your key experiences and skills - but don't forget to answer the question!
The interviewer usually has a script - don't be worried if they fire questions at you and don't really respond to your answers
Smile while you talk - they will be able to hear it in your voice!
Awkward silences won't always be awkward... Most of the time it's just because they're taking notes.
Telephone interviews are usually used as one part of a longer process with an application form or CV.
Do your research
Think about your body language - strong handshake, smile, crossed legs and confidence
Dress professionally (and even if they say it is a casual dress code, wear neat, clean clothing)
Think in 'bullet points' if they ask you questions like 'tell me about yourself' - this will ensure you don't ramble
Remember that the person interviewing you is just a person and they want to know that you're passionate about the position and that you'd be an interesting, positive addition to their team!
Most jobs use one to one interviews - as well as a few universities.
Do your research
There will always be that one person who is overly keen and dominating - don't be intimidated or feel like you can't get involved
The interviewer will be looking for people who take into account others' ideas, are positive, are organised and come up with creative ideas
Get to know the other people in the room when you are waiting for the interview so you can feel relaxed when discussing ideas with them
You will usually have a one-to-one interview after a group interview for many types of jobs.
If you get a practical interview in somewhere like a coffee shop, and have no experience, you do not need to panic. They are not looking for you to get it right the first time. Pay close attention to what they say and ask them if you don't get it quite right.
Other people will have made the same mistakes. When I applied for a job at Costa I had to make a cappuccino - I burnt the milk and it overflowed all over the worktop... I still got the position because I apologised, kept calm, and tried again!
Practical interviews are used in coffee shops, customer service positions, and for teaching/childcare jobs
