Interviewing techniques for construction jobs

When you already passed the CV screening test and finally got that initial interview you’ve always wanted for one of your short list of construction jobs, the next thing you need to do is prepare for the interview to ensure that you answer all the interviewer’s questions accordingly.
Interview Preparation
•    The first thing you need to do is find out everything about the company either through their company website and other online sources to make it easier.
•    Plan your route whether by car or public transport and if possible, familiarise yourself on the area where the interview will be conducted to avoid being late on the day of your interview.
•    Make sure that you arrive on time, ideally 10 minutes before your scheduled interview so you’ll have time to calm and compose yourself before the interview proper.
•    Dress appropriately and in a professional manner to leave a good impression with your prospective employer.
•    Get the name and position of the interviewer.
•    It is important to exude a proper and positive attitude throughout the whole interview.
•    If you’ll be having a panel interview, ensure that you maintain eye contact with all the people in the room and don’t forget to prepare questions to ask to show your interest in the job and the company itself.
Some of the usual job interview questions include:
•    Reason why you applied for that specific construction job
•    The things you can offer to the position
•    Relevant experience you’ve had that you can bring to the company
•    Your strengths and weaknesses
•    The things that you’ve enjoyed doing on your previous construction jobs (if applicable)
Keep in mind that you have two goals during your interview- convince the employer that you’re a competent individual that is a perfect fit with their team and that you can make a positive contribution to their organisation.
Finally, don’t forget to do the cardinal rule after each interview- thank the interviewer for his/her time and ultimately, that you’ll look forward on hearing from them soon.
