    Interview process

    This was the first video interview I had so it was kind of nerve racking. Some pre interview set up tips: 1) Look smart line as if you're attending a real face to face interview. 2) Have a plain backgrounds behind you so that the interviewer doesn't get distracted. 3) Use a headset so that they can hear you clearly. I used the headset that comes with an iphone. 4) Try and be in an area with good Internet as long as it's quiet. 5) be wary of your body language. Remember they can see everything you're doing.   Now that we've got the pre-interview stuff completed keys start with the interview itself.   The interview can be broken down into 3 sections: 1) About yourself 2) Competency questions 3) Role play   1) About yourself These are general questions about yourself you need to confirm e.g.Name, degree, availability, wilingness to move   2) Competency questions These were not difficult. They're quite general.  Tell me about a time you worked with someone difficult Tell me about a time you did something extra ordinary What's been your biggest challenge to date. Remember to use the STAR technique.  
    3)Role playThis is the section that completely threw me off as I wasn't expecting it and was my first time doing it. The general idea behind this is to see how you think. The situation that was proposed to me was that I am an inventor and i am to invent a new flask for a group of people with whom I'm going to meet. The interviewer will take the role of the group. You now have to ask questions which will help you design this flask. Types of questions to ask: Where are you going to use it What is the general age group of thegroup How often are you going to use   The key is to take your time and ask good questions rather than just throwing random questions at her.   I passed the interview and got invited to the assessment centre However was unable to attend due to a clash with an exam.
