Hey folks. I'm writing up and have applied for a few research assistant posts to see me through the final months. Got notification of an interview yesterday (for 3 days time!) . Can anyone advise me of how to prepare for this? What questions ahould I expect? Thanks for your advice. I really need it!

Like any interview they will want to know that you are capable of the work and a good fit with the team. Have examples ready of relevance to the post around meeting deadlines, working with others and anything else that is key from the job description.

If you have a look on jobs.ac.uk there are some really good interview prep guides on there.

hi Athena30, well done on getting invited to interview! another tip to add:
go back to the job specs and person spec requirements, and practice answering questions based on those.

For example:
Experience working with children - essential
Experience working in a clinical setting - essential

practice talking on these part OR write out an answer

best of luck
love satchi
