THE THREE Ps – PREPARE, PRACTICE AND PERFORM – Guideline for Interviews
At Tiger, we understand that even the best in the market can find the interview process difficult. Hence, we have dedicated a page to offer guidance on how we advise our contacts to prepare for interviews.
Job searching techniques change, the labour market changes and job descriptions change. What remains constant is the interview. It’s your opportunity to sell yourself. The first 30 seconds of a job interview are the most important, so if you want to be the outstanding candidate you need to be ready to impress.
Rob Yeung, a business psychologist, maintains that an interview is all about the three Ps. “You need to prepare, you need to practise, and then, on the day, you need to perform.”
Here are 10 tips for interview success.
Know your CV and the job description TIGER Technical have provided you with. Do your research thoroughly, by looking at the company web site and obtaining literature. You may be asked about your salary expectations so make sure you research that too.
Answer questions properly. If you need a few moments to collect your thoughts, take them. It’s better to take a minute to think about your answer, rather than speaking instantly and regretting it afterwards.
