Job interview - July 5th 2011, 08:01 AM

I have a job interview on monday and haven't had one in ages, so I'm a bit rusty. It's for a job as a care worker (working with disabled adults/elderly people). I know asking questions at interview is a good way to show you're interested in the job and I've got a couple prepared to ask about the job role. However, the rate of pay was not advertised on the website and I don't know whether I should ask about it at interview, or wait and ask about it if they offer me the job. Is it rude to ask about how much I will be paid?
Also, does anyone have any suggestions on how to come across as the best candidate for the job? I'm so freaking nervous haha!

Hey Ella,

Congratulations on getting a job interview, that's a really good step in the right direction. To answer your question about pay, every job interview I've ever had they have always discussed the rate of pay when they have been going through and explaining things about the job. I wouldn't be surprised if when they're talking about what the job entails they also then discuss with you about pay and everything like that.

As for advice, I had an interview not too long ago and the night before the interview I read this http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Employme...ajob/DG_173685. I found it pretty useful on what information I should know and which questions I might be asked. So I'd recommend giving that a read.

Just be yourself, try to relax and smile. It's all good practice at the end of the day.

Good luck and be sure to let us know how you get on!





When we're lost in the madness, kindness is wisdom.
