This week, we ask one of our experts, Kieran Wrafter, senior consultant at Ranstad Legal, what you need to do after you secure a job interview.

Q: I've been advised to prepare for it. What does this mean and why is it so important?

A: As recruiters, we often receive feedback from clients declining candidates for reasons relating to their lack of enthusiasm or interest in the role or their organisation during interview. This is often due to lack of preparation prior to interview and in a highly competitive market, this can be the deciding factor between you getting the role or another candidate.

The interview is your one opportunity to "sell" yourself and exhibit not only your technical capability and personality but your level of enthusiasm and interest for the position and the firm as a whole.

The key then to ensuring your success comes down to your preparation. We recommend that you take the time to research the company, review the position description, and formulate a list of relevant and insightful questions. These can be asked at interview and should relate to the role, the team / department, your manager as well as the organisation as a whole. This not only gives you a level of confidence when responding to questions but will demonstrate your initiative and level of interest in the role and the firm.

Remember this is as much an interview about you as it is about them. It's therefore essential that you leave no doubt in the mind of the potential employer of your capability or interest in the role, and that you have gained sufficient information to enable you to make an informed decision as to whether the role, and the firm, is the "right fit" for you.
