Tip 1: Web Research

Success goes hand in hand with preparation. So do your homework and find out what your potential employer is all about. What can you learn from their website? What does the company do? What products do they promote and supply? Who are its competitors and major clients?

Expect the interviewer to ask what you know about the company. Have a few key points ready but don’t trot out a rehearsed speech.

Sounding knowledgeable and natural will give you a strong start, and you’ll feel more confident about the rest of the interview.

Tip 2: Questions and Answers

You’re going to be asked lots of questions. Think of some short answers to these examples: Why do you want the job? What are your strengths and weaknesses? What could you bring to the role?

Interviews aren’t a one-way street: think of some questions of your own to ask the interviewer. This makes you look interested and enthusiastic about the role. Thoughtful questions leave a great impression, so make it impossible for the interviewer to forget you!

Tip 3: First Impressions Count

People can make up their minds about you very quickly, so your appearance matters. Ensure you are smartly dressed even if the role won’t require it on a day-to-day basis. How you present yourself at an interview shows you are taking this application seriously.

Tip 4: Be Prepared

Keys, wallet, phone – check! Don’t forget to turn up with a copy of your CV and the job specification. Take ID and certificates of your qualifications if you’re asked to.

Tip 5: Plan your journey

Don’t let the interviewer start tapping their watch. Make the right impression by turning up on time. Check the route and find out, how long it should take. If you are driving, find out whether there is on-site parking. A well-planned trip will reduce your stress levels and help you relax before the interview.

Your CV needs to include technical content that demonstrates you have the ability and experience in a technical role. We suggest you include as much technical content in relation to hardware and software that you are familiar with.

  • Include product names of kit that you have used or are familiar with. eg. Extron, AMX, Crestron, Control4, Kramer, Polycom, Cisco, Lifesize, Lutron, Yamaha, DiGiCo, Soundcraft
  • Include any service related processes you have experience with
  • Give examples of tasks you have managed

We know how hard it can be to get into the right position with little or no experience in that particular field. As an example, if you are seeking work in a role as an Audio Visual Technician, you could approach live event companies who operate on weekends. Offer your free time in exchange for experience. Live event work is a great foundation for any AV tech who wants to progress in the Audio Visual Event and Production sector.
