Provide positive examples
Share examples in the interview and talk about positive ways you’ve made a difference in your last role. Provide specifics using the STAR technique: talk through the Situation, Task, Action, and Result. This all helps to provide us with a picture of how you can contribute to the team.
Remember that even a difficult situation you’ve experienced can demonstrate how you’ve overcome challenges and problems, and can be a good indicator of future behaviour.
Try not to feel rushed and always be honest. If you need time to think, just say so. If for some reason you can’t remember dates or names, it’s fine to tell your interviewer that you can provide further details later.
If you go off track when answering it is ok to stop, pause, reflect on another example and ask to use that one instead. It is better to correct yourself in the interview rather than walk away wishing you had answered differently.
Be prepared with questions to ask us, this is your opportunity to understand if the role is right for you as much as it is about us understanding if you are right for the role.
