INTERVIEW TIPS

1. Be on time!  

Practice getting to the venue to see how long it will take. Public transport may be useless, the traffic  mayhave been heavy, but however reasonable it won't affect the fact that your chances are reduced if you are late. Always remember - You never get a second chance to make a first impression.

2. Be Prepared!

Look at the employers' website and learn something about the company before you attend your interview. Feed them the opportunity to talk proudly about something positive you have found

3. Write down and practice possible questions! 

Writing them down and practicing them with someone will make it easier to remember when you get to the interview. Use the third person when talking about the job. Avoid sounding as though you assume Job is yours

4. What are your weaknesses?

Don't be Spud from Trainspotting! 'None…ah well, ah'm a bit of a perfectionist actually!' Try to find an area of your experience/skill that is currently lacking. An interviewer will appreciate your candour - as long as whatever you disclose can be easily remedied

5. You never get a second chance to make a first impression!

SMILE! Dress professionally in simple business attire. Just because you are going to be working in a ski resort does not mean you should wear Oakleys and a fleece to your interview. And don't forget that firm handshake.

6. Be honest!

There really is no point lying about your background and/or skills. If you get caught, or even manage to get out to resort and then get found out, you can be sure you won't be around for long! Job interviews are about matching needs - if there isn't a good match, then chances are that the job won't work out.

7. Check your CV for possible gaps!

Make sure you know how you are going to explain time gaps on your CV.

8. Talk about specific achievements!

Interviewers like to know how you felt about about a particular success. Some will ask for specific examples of things you've done that you're particularly proud of; how you solved problems; how you learned - and improved - from difficult situations

9. Don't talk too much!

Spud again - Communication is a two-way thing so give them a chance

10. Prepare a sample menu plan!

If you are applying for a catering job then take along a sample menu plan. By this we mean a starter/main/dessert combination over six days, ideally with a vegetarian option. Think about teh balance of nutrients and how the colours will look on the plate

11. Take a spare photo CV with you!

Your interviewer won't be expecting it so you will impress them. It also helps them remember you after the interview.

12. Be enthusiastic and positive!

Don't criticize previous employers, particularly within the industry. Focus on positive achievements and views.

Best of luck!!!
