Preparing for a Job Interview
Questions naturally focus on technical qualifications, experience and the ability of a candidate to perform the role in question, but discussions may also include the motivation, or enthusiasm, of a candidate and his, or her, suitability for the existing organisational structure within a company, etc..
This means that a job interview, for some, is a daunting experience, but it is worth remembering that, ultimately, an employer does want to fill the position so that work can continue, but must be satisfied that a prospective employee is competent, honest and enthusiastic.
Preparation is – or, at least, should be – a byword for success in job interviews, so before your interview date, research everything you can about your prospective employer. This may include details of company history, products, services, etc. – generally available from the company website – and/or the annual report, which can be obtained by telephoning the company.
Obviously not all job interviews follow exactly the same pattern, but there are a number of typical, general questions that you should try to anticipate, along with more specific questions based on your own career history.
Dress & Body Language
With this in mind, when greeting your interviewer, or interviewers, shake hands firmly – but not too firmly – look them in the eye and speak with a firm, confident voice. The same is true when it comes to answering questions; maintain eye contact and do not rush, or mumble, as many people do when nervous.
Engineering Jobs & Careers
The engineering sector offers excellent opportunities for career development, or progression, for the right candidate. Engineer jobs – graduate structural or civil engineer, for example, allow candidates exposure to the latest industry methods, often on high-profile, multi-million pound projects, while working towards chartered engineer status.
