Whether you’re looking for your first job, seeking a new career opportunity or teaching employability skills to young people or adult learners, LifeSkills could offer you everything you need to know about performing successfully in interviews.
Job interviews help employers to get to know candidates for a role they want to fill by hearing about their relevant experience and skills. Job interviews will vary in length and format and it’s extremely likely that there will be more than one candidate being considered for a role. Some organisations hold two or three rounds of interviews before making a final decision.
Interviews provide an opportunity for both a potential employer and employee to decide if they are a good fit for each other. This includes previous experience, skills and knowledge, and if they align with the workplace culture. Winning at an interview takes preparation and research to ensure the candidate can answer any question the employer could ask them, and include all the information employers will be looking for in the answer.
You can find lots of other LifeSkills content to support yourself or your learners in preparing for an interview, whether that’s knowing what to expect, the different types of interviews employers could hold, and handy tools for crafting model interview answers.
