The job interview

For any job interview it is important to know your own strengths and weaknesses. Take time before the interview to research the market and sector you want to work in, familiarising yourself with the latest developments. Bring original diplomas and certificates to the interview as well as an extra copy of your CV.

 

In a lot of cases a recruiter will interview a candidate more than once. It can often take several weeks before you receive another invitation. It is common to follow-up an interview with a letter/email or phone call, reiterating your interest in the position and thanking the recruiter for the time and effort invested by them.
