How can I be prepared for my interview?

Play an active role in your interview by:

  • doing research about Ulton (all of which can be found on our website!). This will show that you are really interested in working for Ulton and will set you apart to other candidates.
  • reading the position description. The position description details the type of duties that are associated with this role, and also what skills, experience and qualifications are necessary in order for someone to complete these duties successfully. The interviewer will probably ask you to elaborate on your relevant skills, experience and qualifications.
  • being prepared to answer behavioural-based interview questions. The typical format of a behavioural-based interview question is one in which the interviewer will ask you a question, and ideally, you should briefly describe the situation, what specific action you took to have an effect on the situation, and the positive result or outcome.
  • preparing some questions to ask the interviewer.
