Selection by interview

The main challenge that I faced was communicating with people that I don’t really know, so it made me really shy. Therefore for me it made the interview process very hard

An interview is a competitive process where the company or employer meets with you, either over the phone, by video call or in person to decide whether to offer you a job. Interviews tend to involve someone from Human Resources and/or your prospective manager asking you a series of questions to find the best person for the job. Interviews try to find out if:

  • You have relevant experience
  • You have the skills to do the job
  • You will be a good employee
  • They like you enough to make you a part of the team

I generally research a job well before I go to an interview so that I am able to work out what the questions are likely to be. That way, I can prepare answers.
