I am a business management graduate with a master’s in Digital Marketing. Since leaving university I
have enjoyed a two year marketing career within the sports industry.
I believe that my digital marketing skills are best showcased by an email marketing campaign
I recently led, which increased our conversion rate by 10 per cent.
I’m looking for a more challenging role within a fast-paced global organisation, where there is plenty of
room for me to grow; hence why I was so pleased to be invited to interview for this role.
Talk through your CV in chronological
order – focusing on the roles which are
relevant to this job interview
Keep your language simple, and use
action verbs to showcase your skills
REMEMBER:
PART 1: PLAN HOW YOU WILL
INTRODUCE YOURSELF

PART 1: LEARN HOW TO USE THE
STAR INTERVIEW TECHNIQUE
You may be asked situational and behavioural questions such as:
In order to answer these types of questions, use the STAR technique:

was struggling”
DESCRIBE YOUR TASK AND INVOLVEMENT
YOUR ACTION
SHOW OFF THE RESULTS

solving attitude”
PART 1: PLAN YOUR QUESTIONS
TO ASK THE INTERVIEWER
1. THE ROLE
4. LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT
5. THE ORGANISATION

structure of the company?
• What constitutes success for the
team?
• What’s your background?

work here?
• How often would my performance be
reviewed?
• What training opportunities are available?
• What are the main challenges and
opportunities that the business faces?
• How does your organisation live its
purpose?
• What’s the next
step in the hiring
process?

DESCRIPTION

INTERVIEW WILL LAST
