    Re: Dream job interview - advice needed!

    I went for an interview for a brilliant job several years ago.....and got the job.
    The boss turned out to be a bit of a barsteward.
    In the end I couldn't wait to leave.

    The moral of the story is......... if you don't get the job you might have had a lucky escape.
    Hope you get the job though

    Without wishing to raise false hope, this one sounds more like them providing the 'sign off' to the finalist/s selected rather than another typical interview
    Might even be useful to at least be prepared to discuss questions about contracts etc (no point falling at the last hurdle)

    Good luck

    Re: Dream job interview - advice needed!

    My Father-in-Law used to do recruitment in banking. He has some tales to tell. He also has a very interesting interview strategy. I've not got the appendages required for most of his techniques, but I've used adapted forms of some of them in the past with good results.

    I had an interview about 6 years ago for a job I needed, maybe not necessarily wanted. That's another story. Anyhow, on his advice, when I had my chance to ask questions I asked the following sorts of questions...
    When I start who will I be working with? Is it possible to meet the team now?
    It's funny how quickly they changed from 'if you start' to join my use of 'when'. They took me upstairs and I got to meet the chaps and chatted with them. Realised I'd fit in well. So it worked well for me also.
