Checklist – Interview Preparation

You can use this checklist to help you prepare for your interview.

Before the interview

Read the job advertisement and think about all questions you may be asked based on the requirements of the role.

Download a copy of practice interview questions we have prepared for you.

Prepare your answers using the STAR methodology (Situation, Task, Action, Result).

Practice answering the list of questions you created and the practice questions we have prepared Research about the company.

Make note of specific questions to ask the company during the interview.

Research about the interviewers (for example: where they have worked before, how long they have been in this company, which other roles they have had, etc).

Select your outfit for the interview.

On the day of the interview


Bring pen and a notebook or a device to take notes and refer to your notes. Arrive early, but not too early. 10-15 minutes before the interview is acceptable.

Be friendly with the receptionist, keep eye contact and smile (eg. “Good morning, my name is XYZ, I am here for the 10am interview”).

During the interview, keep eye contact with everyone who is interviewing you, not just the person who has asked the question.

After the interview

Email the company a “thank you” note within 24 hours of your interview.
