Interview Cheat Sheet

Remember desperately cramming studying for your exams at university?

You would take an educated guess at what questions were likely to be in an exam. You’d prepare and practice a range of answers. You’d make notes, and then refine them, and then refine them some more until you had your key points ready to commit to memory.

Your preparation for job interviews should be no different.

It is surprisingly common how often people swan into an interview having done little more preparation than reading over their CV and making sure they didn’t spill any weetbix on their shirt at breakfast.

I don’t think it’s over-egging the pudding to say the right job has the power to give meaning to your life and exert a positive influence over nearly every part of it. What could be more important than preparing for your shot at that?

It’s actually not hard to do, either. Unlike the all-night cramathons of your uni days, it’ll probably take you a couple of hours, max. And the best part? You’re allowed to take your notes in with you! That’s right: no-one’s going to disqualify you (or even think you’re odd) for taking in a cheat sheet. We’ve even taken the hard work out of it for you by creating one for you – all you need to do is fill in the gaps with key points to jog your memory.
