INTERVIEW Q & A

1. Describe your current/past roles?

  • Describe your last four roles using that STAR framework, in less than two minutes each.
  • Provide a two minute overview of your career, emphasising your most recent roles.
  • Never talk negatively about a former employee or colleague, no matter how much you are tempted. No one likes a backstabber.

2. Why did you leave? Why are you looking to leave?

  • When you answer this question, employers will likely look you in the eye and probe for elaboration. They want to know if you might leave this jov for the same reason.
  • Good answers are 'my role has changed' or 'time to see what else out there'. Be prepared to elaborate on your answers.
