Interview tips and tricks to help you succeed

Interviews can be unnerving, we’ve all been there! We endeavour to boost our candidate’s confidence before the day of the interview, to maximise their ability to deliver a strong and personable performance. Enough about us, lets talk about you!

  • Prepare! Do your research on the company and come up with three reasons why you would love to work with them.
  • Practice! Have your family or friends ask you typical interview questions to practice your answers and become more confident.
  • Breath! Think about the question, don’t rush your answers and take your time. This shows composure.
  • Background! Instead of one question, one answer, integrate your experiences and skill set into conversation.
  • Conclude! Employers love you to ask questions not only throughout, but at the end of your interview. This shows an interest in the company and where it’s going.

CV Advice

When it comes to applying for a new job, your CV could be the difference between you securing your first interview, or not. Partnering your skills and experience with a well written and engaging CV is essential. Creating a successful CV is easy when you know how...

  1. Personal Profile

    This is the first thing potential employers are going to read when reviewing your CV, which is why this is one of the most important parts! Within your personal profile you are able to provide a summary of your experience, diversity you have experienced within your role and your future plans.

  2. Education

    Education plays a big part in Engineering. Make sure you add in any relevant qualifications, particularly if you have a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree.

  3. Key Skills

    By adding in 4 to 6 key skills to your CV, potential employers can see straight away what you excel at! Key skills can come in a number of forms, whether that be software knowledge, personal attributes or sector speciality.

  4. Work History

    You should add in your job title, the company you worked for, the length of time you worked there, and a brief explanation of your role and responsibilities. Adding in key projects is always an excellent way to grab someone’s attention! This shows the scale of project you have been exposed to and gives a clear indication of your capabilities.

  5. Interests & Hobbies

    Lots of people miss this section out from their CV, but it’s a great way for employers to get an insight to your lifestyle outside of work!
