Preparing for Interview…
It shall be useful to know the company you shall go for interview and read the activity reports, if any.
Making preliminary preparation about the department and position you shall interview for shall provide convenience for accurate evaluation.
Determining the address you shall go for interview and the route previously shall be helpful for time management.
Being at the interview address 10 minutes before the appointment shall be sufficient.
Your dress being tidy and clean rather than formal is important for the first impression.
As Şişecam Group, we apply Competency based interview technique in our recruitment interviews; therefore, the questions we’ll ask shall be related to your experiences.
You may give examples based on your experiences according to the information wanted in the question. These experiences may be from your previous internships, homework from your lessons, group studies or club activities. Your answers should be clear, explanatory and related to the question.
It makes no sense to tell things which do not reflect you but you believe it is necessary to be told or without knowing during the interview. Just be yourself and answer frankly because these questions do not have either correct or incorrect answers.
If you don’t understand the question, you may request to repeat it. Do not hurry to answer and do not get stressed for the short silence period while you’re thinking your answer.
If you’re in a group interview, try to transmit your ideas correctly and intend to make contributions to the discussions with these opinions. Use the time correctly and effectively, make the opposite party feel that you care for team cohesion.
It may take time to evaluate the relevant positions; however, we absolutely give feedback to all applicants, either positive or negative, and inform them.
