What should I consider before my job interview?

I have been called for an interview. What should I think about when I am preparing for it?

  • Hi,

    Preparation is everything when you are going for an interview.
    • Ask the employer who you will be meeting, how long the interview will last, what language will be used, whether you should bring anything with you e.g. contact information for your references and whether there is anything you need to prepare for the interview and if there will be some form of test/analysis.
    • Also read through the advertisement and your application again so you understand the job you are going to interview for and what you have written in your application. 
    • Read about the employer, visit their website but also use other sources that may have useful information.
    • Prepare your own questions to the employer as this shows interest. These questions may vary, but they should be based on what you want to know about the job and the employer/workplace in order for you to feel secure enough to accept a possible offer.
    • Before the interview, think about what you have that is valuable to the employer, i.e. why you are the best candidate and why they should hire you. Also, review the most common questions that may come up.
    •  As a Naturvetarna member you can also book an interview coaching session with one of our career advisors where we go through regular interview questions and you can practise and reflect on your answers. The coaching session is adapted to your situation and your thoughts. If this sounds interesting, read more and register for this service via our website.
    • Check the salary level for the specific position you are interviewing for. Easy to do by logging in to Saco lönesök or contacting the union representatives who are sometimes listed in the ad. Or contact the Naturvetarna membership helpline at radgivning@naturvetarna.se or 08-4662480.
    • And finally, remember that you have been called for an interview, which means that you have something that your employer is looking for. Be yourself and go into the interview believing that you have already landed the job.
    Good luck!

    Best regards,
