interview types  Different types of job interviews


There are a variety of interview types that employers may conduct, including second interviews, phone and video interviews and even interviews held during a meal.

Lunch and Dinner Interviews
Interviewing can be more stressful when you are expected to eat and talk at the same time. One of the reasons employers take job candidates out to lunch or dinner is to evaluate their social skills and to see if they can handle themselves gracefully under pressure. Make sure you use correct table etiquette, don't drink alcohol and write a thank-you not afterwards.

Group Interviews
There are two types of group interviews. One is being interviewed by a group (or panel) of interviewers, the other is being interviewed with a group of other applicants.

Second Interviews
You passed the first interview with flying colors and you have been asked to attend a second interview. Ask questions and be sure to include anything you missed saying the first time.

Telephone Interviews
t's important to be prepared for a phone interview on a moment's notice. Use all the same techniques that you have prepared for the "real" interview. Keep a pen and notepad beside you and speak clearly and slowly.

Video Interviews
Use all the same techniques that you have prepared for the "real" interview. Practice beforehand if possible and maintain "eye contact" with the camera.
