What it means An interview is a meeting between an employer and applicants for a certain role. The main aim of an interview is to short-list the applicants and choose those who would be best suited for the job. In an interview, applicants will be asked a number of questions to determine their suitability for the job. There are different types of interviews including; • One to One This is an interview conducted between you and the person responsible for hiring • Panel Interview This is an interview consisting of two or more people who have an interest in hiring. • Group Assessments This type of interview involves a group activity where you have the opportunity to demonstrate your team working skills • Telephone interview This is a job interview conducted on the phone. Employers often do phone interviews to do an initial screening of candidates as it is a relatively cheap and quick way of ruling out unsuitable candidates
