What will happen at an interview?
When you are chosen for an interview, there are many types of questions that you will face on the day and need to be prepared for. Organisations that require you to address selection criteria or capabilities as part of their application process will also base the questions they ask at the interview on these as well. Most likely, you will be asked a range of questions to demonstrate your skills and abilities in relation to the criteria or capabilities. These could include behavioural-based questions and hypothetical scenario questions. There is also the chance that you may be asked to undertake exercises such as a work sample test or to prepare a presentation for the selection panel. Often the purpose of the interview is to substantiate and build on the responses that you gave in your written application.
