Interview processI received the request for my initial interview through my recruiters Pattersons (Abingdon). I attended the first interview which was conducted by two of the company's managers. The two ladies kindly welcomed me to sit down in an office away from the chaos of the sales room.
They began by asking me about the stage I was at at the the moment and they both had a copy of my CV in front of them. I explained I had finished university the week before and that this was my first interview. They were both very friendly and carried on asking about my work and how I felt it would help me in the role I had applied for.
I was asked how I deal with stress and how I go about prioritising tasks. I had brought examples of my work and was able to use an ipad to take them through the responsive designs of my websites. This first interview took a more conversational format rather than a quick fire question and answer session. I came away feeling calm and confident.
I was asked back for a second interview two weeks later to meet the head of marketing and to be shown the computers and the software they used. My meeting with the head of marketing was more intense, he was interested in the details of my past projects and I found myself explaining pieces of work that I had assumed he wouldn't want to know about. Although assertive he was also friendly and engaging. He asked about what I did in my free time and he then happily related to my hobbies and we were able to chat about badminton and the tennis. By the end it didn't feel as though I was in an interview at all.
Most difficult questionIn my second interview the head of marketing asked "Are you happy with dealing with both the creative side and the data management side?" I answered with "yes" but there was a silence in which I felt like they wanted me to expand on my answer. So I explained that I would appreciate the variety and would enjoy handling the data first hand, that it would make me feel like I was having an influence on the scope of the company.
Interview tipsHave examples of your work ready for instant viewing. Look them in the eye and talk about how you will/can help the company grow. Look enthusiastic about your surroundings. Remember that they're trying to impress you as well as the other way round.
