This is your one chance to get everything down and show us you’re the right person for the role.

Talk about specific real-life situations to demonstrate skills and give your answers more credibility. Talking about team achievements is fine, but it’s you we’re interested in. Find examples that specifically describe your role, your approach and the outcomes.

If you’re a recent graduate or haven’t been in work for that long, think about other examples that demonstrate your skills and knowledge. University projects, voluntary work and social activities can all throw up similar challenges to the ones you’d encounter in the workplace.
