Customer Question: What Types of Interview Can I Expect?Types of interview

In today’s marketplace and with the explosion of the internet, there are a number of interview scenarios you may encounter.

Here is a list of the types of interview you may be asked to attend.

10 Popular Types of Interview

  • One-to-one interview
  • Panel interview
  • Group-based interview
  • Preliminary telephone interview
  • Pre-qualification questionnaire
  • Competency-based interview
  • Psychometric tests
  • Aptitude tests
  • Assessment centres
  • Video conferencing, Skype or webcam interviews

It’s not unusual to encounter more than one type of interview scenario, even for the same job.  Many of the remote methods are used today during the initial stages of interview so don’t be surprised if you’re required to participate in a telephone interview or video conferencing type interview in the first instance.  These are good methods to screen candidates at relatively low costs to the employer. Whilst you may not be in the same room, it is equally important to ensure you follow good interview practice to make the very best impression you can.

Regardless of what types of interview you are attending, you need to make sure you are dressed correctly and have fully prepared yourself by doing a little bit of research on the company, the industry and the position itself.

We would also recommend you draft a list of interview questions to ask if it arises and sharpen up your aptitude skills if the process involves measurable testing. One of the biggest mistakes you can make at any type of interview is not to have any questions prepared when asked. It makes you appear uninterested in the role and you want to come across as enthusiastic towards the position and interested in the company too.
