Top Graduate Job Hunting Tips

Avoid these graduate interview mistakes

  • Ensure you have researched the company. Have interesting questions ready to ask your interviewer.
  • Aim to have a conversation with the person who interviews you. That means getting the conversation balance right. Usually your recruiter will ask you a short question and expect a detailed answer…
  • Other times the recruiter will want you to listen. They will also expect you to answer every question. That includes those that surprise you or which are difficult to answer.
  • Never interrupt what the recruiter is saying.
  • Remember you need to differentiate yourself from all the other interviews your recruiter will hold that day.

Graduate Interview preparation

Whether you are doing a video-based interview or a face-to-face interview you need to prepare.

That means dressing smartly. Ensure you can answer questions on industry trends. Know about the latest new developments in your chosen sector.

We recommend running a practice interview, or two. Friends or relatives are usually willing to help out. Especially if you return the favour!
