It’s very easy to be nervous before an interview, however experience will teach you that the more prepared you are, the less nervous you will be.
How should I prepare for a job interview? What are the questions normally asked and how do I make a good impression right from the first interview?
If you have been called for a job interview, it means that you have already done well. The company has chosen your CV, considers it interesting and has contacted you in order to know more about you.
Here is some useful advice.
The group interview allows recruiters to get a more complete picture of the candidates, by assessing the behaviour of each individual in relation to other people.
The group is on average a team of 8/10 people who are all being assessed for the same job.
A group interview may last a few hours or an entire day and will involve candidates in dynamics that will bring the group to reach a decision on some given topics.
Attention will be concentrated on the candidates' tendency to reason in a logical manner.
INDIVIDUAL TECHNICAL – INTERVIEW
After the first step with the recruiter, the process continues with the involvement of the Line Manager who will assess whether the candidate profile matches that of the job to be filled.
In this case, skills are in the spotlight and the candidate will be required to give a practical demonstration of his/her skills by answering theoretical questions or perhaps through simulations of real working situations.
INDIVIDUAL MOTIVATIONAL - INTERVIEW
The aim is to make a good impression on the interviewer right from the very first telephone conversation. If the interviewer proposes a motivational interview, it is of fundamental importance to pay close attention to the instructions he/she will provide regarding the time and place of the interview.
The aim of the recruiters is to gather as much information as possible on the candidate, so it is important to give full, well-structured and well-reasoned answers.
