Lesson 2

Preparing for the interview

The initial preparation actually begins from the moment you read an advertisement that interest you. Your first impression of a possible future employment will often come from the advertisement that you answer. This can sometimes reveal considerable information, not just about the job, but also the employer. It takes careful reading to assess the firm that has put out the advertisement. Some firms tend to exaggerate so as to make the organization and the job sound attractive. The advertisement will normally contain the following:


  • The job title
  • A brief summary of duties
  • A brief indication of the sort of person required
  • The salary range
  • ‘When’ the person is required
  • The date by which applications must be submitted
  • The address to which the applications should be sent
  • The method of application
