Interview Notes (10KB)

The prospect of interviews can be very daunting, particularly technical interviews, where you may be asked very specific questions about topics you've studied. However, your confidence and ability to respond to interview questions (whether you know the answers or not) can be greatly improved with a little preparation. Three common interview scenarios have been produced by the LTSN Physical Sciences (now named Physical Sciences Subject Centre). To view the clips, click on the links above.

Each individual short sequence lasts for about 5-7 minutes. Although these are interviews for scientific positions, the style of questioning is representative of most graduate interviews.  As you view each clip you should jot down notes which you feel are most relevant to that particular clip and consider how they may relate to yourself. You can compare your notes with those in the 'Notes from interviews' document above.
