The interview can be either over the telephone, via video or face-to-face. Depending on the role, it might be a combination of these that are used. You will be informed as you move through the process.
Telephone interviews tend to be more about ‘getting to know you’ and discussing your qualifications and experience, as well as understanding your motivations for wanting to work at Sony.
Video interviews can sometimes be in the style of conference calls with a panel of interviewers, but are more likely to be pre-recorded and consist of questions that need to be answered on video.
These are likely to be competency-based questions, so you will need to answer using examples that demonstrate that you have the right mindset and competencies that are required in the role.
Face-to-face interviews are often the most nerve-wracking for applicants, and in some cases they are one of the final stages of the application process. There are often questions about your motivation, your competencies, your experience and your qualifications in this interview.
The most important thing, whichever interview that you are having, is that you research Sony and the wider market. Know all you can about the job role, including what competencies and skills are needed.
Use this knowledge to prepare for the interview so that you can answer questions, and ask thoughtful questions based on your research.
One of the final stages of the process is an assessment of the way you work, your behaviour, and what motivates you. This is essential in a diverse workplace where culture is important: assessing the way you fit in the immediate and wider work community will help ensure that you are successful.
One of the simplest ways to assess your culture fit is a personality test. Through a series of simple statements, the Sony recruitment team can learn more about your traits and characteristics.
In recruitment personality tests, you will be presented with a number of statements and then need to rate how much you think each one describes you.
Personality tests need self-reflection and honesty to be valid, and they are usually untimed so there is no additional pressure. To perform well, you need to answer the questions truthfully with the first answer that comes into your mind.
While it might seem like a good idea to answer the personality assessment by choosing the way you think the recruitment team wants you to answer, for your future success it is better to be honest to be sure that you will fit into the culture.
