Mock Interview Evaluation

This blog is about when I was given the task to be interviewed by the people I sent my cover letter too for their job application and to interview people who sent their cover letters to the job applications my group sent out. We did this so we could prepare for real interviews for the future, here is my evaluation of how my interview went and how my groups interviewing went.

Being the interviewee 

When I was being interviewed for the job of graphic designer, I think that I did pretty well, such as I was able to answer the questions clearly. I was also able to use one of my weaknesses and turn it into a strength, I did this when they asked what are my weaknesses, I responded with “I am dyscalcular and dyslexic” and then followed up with “but I see my dyslexia more as a strength than a weakness as I am more creative because of it”. I was also able to link my skills with the skill requirements very well.

Now there was one improvement I could make which was I should have taken more time in answering the questions, that way I could formulate much better answers.

Being the interviewer 

when interviewing the people who sent in their cover letters for each job application we sent, we made our own questions for the job application we each sent out. We also made some questions that were general questions for all the job application we have, that way some questions were specific for the job role and others were general main questions.

Here is a picture of my questions I did for concept artist:

The general questions were questions 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11, the rest of the questions were made for the job application of concept artist. For the other interviews that weren’t concept artist, I only used the general questions, I believe all the interviews went well, we ask question that were aimed at the job role, at the person and are just general questions. We could have improved a couple of interviews where may have rushed a little bite and weren’t able to ask all the questions we wanted.

The interviews that we had that I was most impressed with was when interviewing Josh and Kallum as they answered the questions very well.
