It's a good idea to plan what you want to tell us about yourself at the interview.
Other candidates may have similar abilities, employment and academic experience to you, so think about how you might distinguish yourself and make yourself stand out from the rest.
If you are asked to provide a presentation make sure it follows the brief and links to the role you are interviewing for - and ensure you practice it before the interview!
A useful technique is to assemble evidence and make notes of what you've achieved in the past. A useful strategy for answering questions based on your strengths and achievements is to use the STAR technique:
||Briefly describe the where, when and who.
||Outline the task or objective and what you hoped to achieve.
||Describe what you did - focus on your role and your input.
||What the outcome was and the skills you developed.
You might also want to rehearse your answers to typical interview questions with a friend - they will be able to give you honest feedback about the content of your answers and body language.
Make a note of any key points and questions you want to ask and ensure you take them with you to the interview.
We will send you details of where your interview will be held and who it will be with. We suggest you investigate how to get there and plan your journey accordingly, especially if you are using public transport.
