With more than 20 years of experience in the market, we understand how nerve-wracking the interview process can be. You can, however, rely on our expert team to provide you with effective interview advice to achieve maximum success. Our recruiters have crafted this comprehensive guide to ensure you put your best foot forward during interviews.


Preparation is Key

Your BettingJobs consultant is the best point of contact to help begin your interview preparation. Your consultant will start by briefing you on the company, the role, their hiring process, and any other important details highlighted by the client.

You will receive clear communication from your consultant regarding the time, date, location, and the interviewer. We will also provide guidance based on our knowledge of the client. We are always available to share the most pertinent information with you.

Use the interview as an opportunity to sell yourself. Be confident, understand the position you are applying for, and know your CV well. From the job description and the briefing with your BettingJobs consultant, determine what the company really wants and how you can convince them you are the right fit.

Tailor your preparation to the role you are interviewing for – if it is an Executive or Senior Management position, prepare accordingly and with substance. For entry-level roles, the same principles apply. However, you should tailor your preparation to place more emphasis on your goals and objectives, as opposed to experience.

Before attending any interview, consider the types of questions that might be asked. Put your interviewer at ease and sell yourself the best way you can by preparing answers that instil confidence in you.

The level of position you are applying for dictates the type of questions you will be asked.  However, some standard questions include: 

  • Talk me through your experience.
  • Why are you interested in this role?
  • What can you contribute to the organisation?
  • What are your career objectives?
  • Describe a situation where you had a difference of opinion with a superior – how was it resolved and what was the outcome?
  • How would your colleagues and / or manager describe you?
  • What motivates you?
  • What are your key strengths?
  • What are your weaknesses?

The interview is a two-way process. Take advantage of the opportunity to create a discussion and ask questions relevant to the role and the company. We suggest using open questions such as: 

  • Why is the position currently available?
  • What is a typical day like?
  • What are the short and long-term prospects?
  • What can you tell me about the company’s growth plans?
  • What training and support is available?
  • What are the biggest challenges currently facing the business?

Communication and etiquette are essential during an interview:

  • Speak with clarity and confidence.
  • Ensure answers are clear, defined, and succinct.
  • Be composed – don’t think you are panicking or you will panic.
  • Make the interviewer(s) feel relaxed and at ease.
  • Don’t be afraid to produce examples of your work to strengthen your answers.
  • Be respectful of your current and former employers.
  • Don’t interrupt. Allow the interviewer time to speak and reply accordingly.

Some other pointers: 

  • Dress appropriately in smart attire.
  • Know the location. Where possible, we recommend practising the journey in advance to ensure you don’t get lost on the day.

Common factors which cost people the job: 

  • Shortage of preparation in advance.
  • Lack of confidence. Allowances can be made for nerves but aim to settle as quickly as possible.
  • Presenting yourself poorly or showing a lack of interest.
  • Turning up looking for any old job and expecting to be hired.
  • Overconfidence or acting in an overbearing manner. Sell yourself but never overstate your credentials – it’s usually perceived as arrogance.
  • Poor communication.
  • Appearing disinterested in what the interviewer has to say and that it’s ‘all about you’.
  • Over-emphasis on the financial aspects.

Closing: 

Once the interview commences, feel free to gauge the interest of the interviewer if the role appeals to you and you feel they have bought into you. The following questions may be useful:

  • What are the next steps?
  • What is your timeframe for deciding?
  • Any concerns?
