Standard candidate recruitment process
When you are asked to come in for an interview it's best to be prepared. At the interview the Recruitment Consultant will provide you with an overview of the role and will ask you questions about your skills and experience to help determine your suitability for the role.
You will be asked behavioural based interview questions, which ask you to demonstrate how you behaved in previous roles. An example of a behavioural question is "Can you give me an example of a time when you've exceeded your customer's expectations?"
The key to answering these questions is to break your answers down into clear responses using the STAR principle.
S (Situation) - describe the situation you were in
T (Task) - what tasks are involved in the situation?
A (Action) - what actions did you take during the situation?
R (Result) - what was the outcome?
When responding, be succinct in your answers and talk about your actions in the scenario involved using language such as "I did", "my role", "I explained", "I arranged" etc. The interviewers will want you to articulate what you did, not what your team or manager did in the situation.
