An interview is essentially a structured conversation where one participant asks questions, and the other provides answers.
Interviews in New Zealand can differ depending on the type of job and employer. Before you go to an interview, ask the employer what the interview will involve, so that you can prepare yourself.
For example, you may want to ask how many people will interview you, or whether you will have to pass any selection tests.
Be prepared for a formal interview but remember the employer wants to get to know you, so having a joke or talking about non-work topics is fine. It is common to be interviewed by a panel of three to four people.
The interview is also an opportunity to research the organisation or position. This may help you decide whether it is the right role for you.
