Interviewing: A complete guide for graduates




This National Careers Week, we’re focusing on interview techniques.

Many of you will be in your final year and might have graduate scheme assessment days coming up.

Or you’ll be starting to think about jobs you want to secure after graduation.

Refining your interview technique ahead of time is a great way to build confidence and help you to develop a game plan before meeting potential new employers.


To help, we’ve pulled together a complete interview guide for graduates, with guidance on:

1) How to answer the 5 most asked questions:

  • Tell me about yourself
  • What are your strengths and weaknesses?
  • Why should we hire you?
  • What do you know about the company?
  • Do you have any questions?

2) Body language dos and don’ts

It’s not just what you say in an interview that’s important. Your physicality, posture and expressions will also contribute to the employer’s impression of you. Make sure it’s a good one.


Watch our interview video guide and get practising to help you land that graduate job.
