Oulu University, Room SÄ124 (campus map, the room location on the map: E5)

Preparing for interviews in English – suitable also for Finns applying for jobs that require English skills!

Our agenda this afternoon:
• What is the interviewer looking for?
• Interview formats and activities
• Predicting the interviewers’ questions and structuring your answers
• The typical questions versus the unexpected ones – how can you prepare for them?
• Summarizing your skills set, your studies and your work experience in a couple of minutes (elevator pitch)
• Your own questions – they might be the most important part of the interview
• Rehearsing for interviews in practice
• After the interview
