Interview Skills – What we cover
The 3 elements of good preparation:
- Know yourself and your CV
- Spend time looking at key questions and how to answer them
- Role-play and mock interview practice
You will get the job you want by demonstrating to the interview panel that you are the best candidate in terms of personality, skill and experience. A key phrase here is “Show don’t tell”. Let it be clear by the way you conduct yourself in the interview that you are a good communicator rather than by telling them so.
Key aspects of the interview:
- What are they looking for? Personality, experience, enthusiasm, honesty, teamworking and leadership abilities.
- Interview myths: Those interviewed first/last and internal candidates fair better, bigger panel means harder questions, etc.
- Coping with nerves: Deep breathing techniques, Psycho-cybernetics.
- How to dress: Keep it simple, dark colours lend authority, groom carefully
- Types of questions: Open retrospective, Topical, and Aggressive questions
- Body language: How to sit, controlling you gestures, what to do with your hands.
- Techniques to effectively answering questions designed to test your knowledge of NHS issues.
