• For many students, the final year of their studies is a very busy time. The coursework is
demanding and you want to make sure you are ready for final exams so you can finish your
University Career on a high note.
• While focusing on your studies and enjoying your University lifestyle, Graduates also need to
start thinking about making that transition to life after University.
• With so many different areas taking up Graduates time (school, career choice, family and
friends, etc.) some forward planning and organising may help Graduates work out what it is
they want to do after University and work out the best way to get there.
I will begin my
career soon. I
need to prepare
and organise to
get ready..
We have put together a brief “How to Interview” Guide for Graduate
Opportunities to help you make that transition from University to Corporate
We hope this helps and wish you the best of luck in your future career

Where to Start?

• The first thing you need to work out before you start applying for a Graduate opportunity is
to answer the question: What do I want to do?
• Every person has different career ambitions. What is it you enjoy doing in your
University studies? Do you enjoy Java programming or your Economics classes? Once
you work out what it is you enjoy you can then start to look for and search for Graduate
opportunities that will take you where you want to go.
• There are numerous Graduate opportunities available. Once you know what you want to
do – you can target Graduate opportunities that apply to you. For example, if your
objective is to be a Java Programmer applying for a Business Graduate Program may not
be the best program for you to apply for. The thinking that it is best to apply for everything
and anything out there may not make best use of your time.

Interview Preparation: Getting Ready for the Interview:

• Rest well and be relaxed: A good night’s sleep before your interview will allow you to begin
your day in the right frame of mind and with all the energy you will need.
• Depending on the type of interview you may want to bring with you: Place 2 copies of
the resume, extra writing paper and a pen as well as all relevant documents in a folder. Carry
a few copies of the passport size photos. If possible, place a glue-stick and a mini stapler in
your folder. Just before the interview, remember to switch off your mobile or to keep in on
silent mode.
• Eat a good breakfast – this will help fuel you through the day. If possible carry a bottle of
water and a snack, just in case your interview is delayed. Many students, in their enthusiasm
to appear for the interview, skip their meal, which may not leave you at your best.

Group interviews
• Candidates may be required to participate in group exercises. These can take the form of
group problem-solving sessions where each candidate's contributions and participation is
noted. During these exercises the interviewers watch and listen to the candidates to see how
they interact with others, work in a team to assess candidates against a set of competencies.
• The competencies/skills that may be observed may include communication and interpersonal
skills, the ability to influence others, leadership, organisational skills and the ability to work as
a team-member. Other behaviors that interviewers may be looking for may include the ability
to handle stress, to deal with feedback and to analyse and problem-solve.
