Interviews are a two way process – they're an opportunity for employers to find out more about you, and for you to find out more about them.

Not all interviews will be successful, but all experience will be useful in helping you prepare for future applications.

Testing your capabilities

Some interviews do have activities to test your capabilities either through a presentation, a written test, role play, a group exercise, in tray out tray exercise, a psychometric test or through a social event.
