Peparing for a interview

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Prepare for an interview! 'Essay' It is important too prepare before an interview to be successful. You should find out about the organisation/sixth form college/job. What do they do? What would you do in the job, course or training scheme? If you are applying for a Sixth Form College you should find out the results of the college in the particular course you are considering taking. While you're in the interview they may ask short, fast and snappy questions for example: * What are your hobbies and interests? * Why did you apply? * What is your favourite school subject and why? A couple of days before the interview you should make sure you know who you will be seeing- their name and position of the person, when, where and what time your interview will be held, bus, tube and train times-plan your route. You should be positive about yourself and show enthusiasm. Think about question you can/should ask: * Training, day release to college? * Hours, overtime? * Holiday, wages? * How long will it be before you hear whether you been successful or not? Do not be shy to ask any questions, let the interviewer know you are nervous he or she will not mind. ...read more.

If you do not hear by the promised date, phone to find out what has happened. If you aren't successful, think about why or how the interview went and what you could learn for next time. Talk to the careers service about how to improve in the interview, NEVER feel too rejected-you may have been one of many people interviewed. What I would do To be in the right element of mind I would prepare before the interview so at I was successful. I would find out about Frances Bardsley Sixth Form, what they do, what courses are available and if they suit my needs. Most importantly I would want to know what the examination results are like and if they have achieved excellent results in the course I'm interested in I would definitely consider enrolling. While I was in the interview they may ask me short, fast and snappy questions for example: * What are my hobbies and interests? * Why did I apply? * What is my favourite school subject and why? As a result of this I would have a run through interview before I had the real one. ...read more.

Conclusion

When I'm in the interview I would always make eye contact otherwise the interviewer may find it hard to talk to me, project my voice clearly and loudly but, I wouldn't talk to loud as it may put him/her off. When he or she is asking me a question I would not just answer 'yes or no' I would explain why, however I wouldn't over talk as it can be off-putting. After the interview I would note down and think about the things said to me in the interview and what I replied, think about whether I would really want the course, if I was offered it. I would reply promptly, whether or not I wanted the course. If I do not hear by the promised date, I would phone to find out what has happened. If I weren't successful, I would think about why or how the interview went and what I could learn for next time. I would talk to the careers service about how to improve in the interview, I'd never feel too rejected-I may have been one of many people interviewed. How I would get there? This is the route I would take to get to Frances Bardsley Sixth Form. ?? ?? ?? ?? 07/02/2009 By Dariene Wootton Page 1 of 4 ...read more.
