University interview tips
Pay attention to these tips for university interviews to make sure you get the university place you want.
1. Be on time!
Always remember - You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Aim to be early - you can always find a nearby cafe/shop/pub to wait in.
2. Be Prepared!
Look at the university's website and learn something about the uni 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 uni. Avoid sounding as though you assume the uni place is yours.
4. What are your weaknesses?
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 and to maintain eye contact - without glaring!
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! Uni interviews are about matching needs - if there isn't a good match, then chances are that the uni won't work out.
