At Nationwide People, we believe that
1st impressions are key; be sure to make a positive
impact at every interview stage. Being 'prepared' as best as you
can be, will help you through your interview process.
Do Your Research
Before any interview, please allow some research time so you can
fully understand what the company does. Understand who they are,
what they do and who they compete with in the market.
Know Your Role
You can be sure that any one of our Recruitment Consultants will give you as
much detail as possible about the opportunity we have available for
you. However, it is always best practise for you to take notes on
our discussions as well as thoroughly read over the job description
(verbal or written) and the advertisement you applied for.
At The Interview
Be sure to attend your meeting early and give yourself plenty of
time to arrive on time. Turning up late may cause you to be anxious
and stressed, which are negative signs and do not help.
Turn your mobile phone OFF.
Whilst talking to the interviewer, please ensure you speak
clearly, concisely and with conviction. Be 'yourself', relaxed,
passionate, honest and try to enjoy your time there. Try to avoid
confrontational discussions, such as negative reasons for leaving
your current position, for example.
Please wear appropriate clothing depending on the company you
are visiting. Best practise is always look 'smart / casual', do ask
any of our Recruitment Consultants for more information about this.
You can always 'dress down' in-line with the people you met once
you have secured your new job.
For telephone screenings, please ensure you can speak clearly
without any background noise or distraction. If using a mobile
phone, make sure you have a good signal and that your battery is
charged, so you will not be cut off.
Take any documents with you required for compliance
purposes. For example, passport, copies of utility bills. Some
clients will not let you on-site without confirmation of your
identity and proof of address.
