Interview processI was asked about my educational background, what I know about the website, and what I can do for the website, with the interviewer quoting my cover letter when she asked 'What could you offer us?' The overall format was quite formal although the interviewer went for none of the questions I had prepared for, ie 'Tell me about yourself' or 'What are your strengths and weaknesses?' so I was caught out a little bit. Also while I was waiting a member of staff kindly made me a coffee but I felt too awkward to drink it during the interview!
Most difficult questionQuestions about the tone of the website - bearing in mind this is a furniture company. I was not expecting so many questions about their website and was unprepared to answer them.
Interview tipsDo as much research as you can on the company, particularly by looking at the website and blog, get a feel for their tone and style and also make sure you're able to answer any questions they may have about your educational background and writing experience.
