The Winning Formula

Interviews and Assessment centres – achieve peak performance and get the job offer

Great communication and presentation skills are often described as key differentiators when it comes to choosing the right candidate for the right job. Ultimately the way you perform on the day will play a vital role when you are trying to convince the interviewer that you are the right candidate for the job. Planning, preparation and practice will significantly increase your ability to achieve Peak Performance.

Many organisations have developed a Competency Framework which covers the key roles within the company. From this a Competency Profile is produced for a specific role which gives a clear guide to recruiters and managers as to what to look for in a successful candidate. Attitudes, behaviours, skills and knowledge are all key components used to develop a competency profile. Once in place recruiters select appropriate selection techniques to identify and verify them.

The interview remains the most common selection tool; however this is now often combined with questionnaires, tests and simulated exercises. Candidates are increasingly required to attend assessment centres where interviews, tests and exercises are tailored precisely to the role being filled. Through demonstrating evidence and mirroring the competencies associated with the position they give the recruiter the most complete information on a candidate’s suitability.

With all this in mind, planning, preparation and practice becomes even more important. You may well have the right competency profile for the job but if you are not at peak performance for your interview or assessment centre you will probably lose out to the competition.
