Job interviews - trial by interrogation?
It may be some time since you attended a job interview and it can be a daunting prospect. Take a deep breath and follow our guide if you are about to strike out again into the big world of work .
So you have made it through to the interview for a job you would really like in your new life after divorce. Before you set off on the big day you need to prepare yourself. Being confident about your abilities is great but may not be enough to carry you through. There are plenty of things you can do ahead of time to ensure that everything goes as well as it possibly can.
Things to do before you arrive
Firstly, confirm in a phone call that you will be attending. Obviously you will have done this before by letter or email but it's worth doing by telephone the day before. This is also a good time to check the location, to ask for directions and to find out about transport or parking.
Sometimes it's even worth making the journey to the interview venue the day before so that you know how long it takes and you know exactly where it is. Never, never be late. You will feel crap and the interview will not start well.

Be prepared for the curve ball
Take a look at your CV and application form again. Think about how you can explain breaks in work, lack of qualifications or poor grades. Also, at the other end of the scale if you have an MBA learn how to make that sound non threatening. Some employers are frightened by these things as they worry that you will know very quickly just how crap a company they are.
Consider the type of questions you are likely to be asked and what your answers could be. Experience often demonstrates that the questions you have prepared don't get asked. It's just like exams! There is usually an opportunity at the end of an interview for you to put your own questions. Don't waste this opportunity, have some well thought out questions ready to roll.
Look and feel the part
Decide well in advance what you are going to wear. Look smart, if you feel comfortable you will be much more ...
