Group Interview Preparation – scottie odonovan

Group interviews were designed for a multitude of purposes. For one thing, it was intended as a cost-efficient method of evaluating multiple applicants. You may not know it, but being able to sift through fifteen candidates within a period normally intended for only five can save big companies a lot of money. But it’s not just about saving money. Group interviews are also meant to simulate real work scenarios. In most cases, you will be asked to interact with the rest of the group in situations requiring skills that would be required in the actual job (i.e. working with people). They’re also intended as a means of direct comparison. It’s much easier for employers to compare who’s better at what when they’re asked to do the same task simultaneously. But seeing as only one of you is going to get the job, how can you make sure that you shine brighter than everyone else? This book is designed to help prepare you to do exactly that. You’ll learn the do’s and don’ts of group interviewing; you’ll become familiar with common group interview questions that may be asked in one form or another; and you’ll learn about other techniques you may need to get a competitive edge over the other candidates.
