N is for… Tell me about a recent piece of NEWS about the sector/industry that interested you.
It is important to not only be interested getting a job you should also be interested in the company, the role, the product or service offered by the company and the industry/sector in which you are working. Even if you have no prior experience it is important to have some basic working knowledge. If you do not have clear experience in a sector/industry you may be asked a general question about a prominent piece in the news or asked to pick one to talk about therefore it is always important to keep up to date with current affairs.
I usually incorporate this into my ‘Company Research’ although I try to keep up to date as a standard practice with the news in the industry or sector I am currently working in.
Using your career journal will help you find inspiration for Interview Questions and help you prepare, practice and review your answers. This can be a great technique which is why I have chosen to use the A to Z of Interview Questions Posts as Journal Prompts. If you don’t already have a career journal this is the perfect excuse to get started.
