At an interview, an employer wants to assess your suitability for the job. They will have identified the skills and qualities that the job requires and will ask you a range of questions relating to your abilities, skills, qualities and aptitude.

Prior to your interview, you will need to prepare positive responses drawn from your work and life experience that illustrate these skills and qualities - from your academic studies, interests, social activities, work placements, vacation work, voluntary work or part-time jobs.
