    Interview process

    The actual interview was based on three themes: Competency, Analytical and Personality. The first part was mainly to see how my skills, experience and the actual qualifications fit into the role sought.
    The interviewers were basing their questions on the details on my CV and were looking for specific examples that reflected aspects such as leadership, communication, Continuous improvement, Personnel management skills and also my ability and capacity to deal with complex issues under pressure whilst at the same time not loosing the direction and ensuring that all organisational targets were meant. Analytical and personality were just to confirm my ability to work with complex figures and data to make informed decisions, whilst personality was to see how myself as an individual match the personality criteria.

    After the interview, I had a presentation.

    Interview tips

    Whilst it is essential to go for any job available while seeking an appropriate one to come along, sometimes, it is better to wait for the right job especially if you are highly qualified for the role being offered. Most interviewers tend to question the ideology behind your thinking. They mostly don't take you seriously.
