What is an interview?
An interview is an opportunity for both you and your prospective employer to see how you will fit into their organisation. It is also a chance for you to find out more about the company and for them to find out more about you and how your previous experience could benefit their business.
What are the different types of interview?
An initial interview could be conducted by an employment agency or consultant and may be either face to face or over the telephone. Telephone interviews are becoming more common with the large number of applicants for each position and are used to draw up shortlists for face to face interviews. A face to face interview may be quite informal, more like a chat, or could involve a more formal interview panel.
