Interview Preparation

Dress Code: Select appropriate attire at least 2 days before the interview. Your consultant will brief you on the organization’s culture. Rule of thumb is to be professional, tidy and comfortable while minimizing accessories. Do a test run and ensure you feel appropriate with the attire. First impressions are critical.
During the interview with line managers, you can expect specific questions relating to your functional competencies. Your consultant will fully brief you prior to the interview. It is strongly recommended to review the job description and company information in detail.
Communication Styles: Greet your interviewer with a firm handshake and good eye contact. During the interview, convey your professionalism and in-depth knowledge of your past experience, energy level and enthusiasm for both the company and the role. Maintain eye contact and proper sitting gesture, leaning slightly forward to indicate interest. Listen carefully to the interviewer’s questions, and answer the questions directly, and with enough detail for the interviewer to understand your thought process. If the answer requires thought, feel free to have a short pause to put together a strong answer. Describe your proactive involvement in your previous track record and remember to back it up with specific work examples.
End of the interview: Preparing smart and relevant questions will impress the interviewers on your enthusiasm for the role and your professionalism. Sample questions should be related to company and team culture, career development plan, resources support, reporting structure and job challenges. Do not be afraid to ask potential employers about the upsides and downsides of a role. Stay away from questions about salary, the potential replacement nature of the position and sensitive company financial figures. If you have any doubts, your assigned recruiter is the best person to speak to. Follow up with a brief thank-you email within 1-2 days. This is also the perfect opportunity to discuss any unclarified areas and summarize your strengths.
