Interview Practice Makes Perfect

interview practice

We can’t over-emphasise the importance of interview practise along with practising everything you learn in The Successful Graduate Course.

Interviews can be one of the most nerve-wracking and unnatural-feeling steps of job seeking.  As such, they usually require the most practice.

If you undertake numerous unsuccessful interviews before you land a graduate job (let’s face it, most of us do!), you will certainly have an opportunity to practice.

But you’ll also find plenty of resources online to help with your pre-interview practise:

  1. Common interview questions – we can vouch for having heard all of these in interview situations of our own
  2. Group interview questions – sometimes used for largscale recruitment
  3. Aptitude test examples – often administered in person when you’re onsite for an interview
  4. Even questions for you to ask your employers at interview!

At a practical level, all forms of in-person networking, from one-on-one coffee meetings to dedicated networking events, also represent excellent opportunities for practising the direct and highly verbal nature of an interview (particularly if you’re working in a second language).

Or practise with a friend or family member. Or in front of the mirror. Or with your dog. It WILL get easier.
