If you pass the assessments, you will be invited to the final stage of the application process: the interviews. The number of interviews you face will depend on the position you applied for.
Candidates applying for a technical role are also likely to have a technical interview.
These interviews will assess your technical knowledge and expertise, as related to the needs of the specific role. The interviewer may also ask you to solve some problems or write code during the interview.
The best way to prepare for this interview is to familiarize yourself with the basics and practice sample problem questions.
The HR interview is designed to be more personal, with questions focusing on your motivations, career goals, experience, and reasons for applying. It is likely you will also be asked competency-based questions, which are designed to assess your strengths with specific required skills.
Competency-based interview questions require you to use relevant examples from your studies, work experience, or other areas of your life. The best way to ensure you are giving concise and relevant examples is to use the STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) technique.
Typical competency-based interview questions include:
- Tell me about a time you have made a mistake
- Describe a situation in which you led a team
- What has been your biggest achievement to date?
It is important to remember that an interview is a two-way conversation, so you should also use this as an opportunity to learn more about the role and company, and ask any questions you may have.
