A relatively small part of the interview process is about knowledge. Interviews are really communication exercises where you are expected to demonstrate your suitability in a mature, enthusiastic and confident manner.
It is often quoted that interviewers make their decision about your suitability to a post within the first 30 – 60 seconds! They then spend the rest of the allocated interview time justifying their initial impression about you. Obviously within specialised roles it is vital to be able to demonstrate that you have the required qualifications and knowledge or skill set. This will usually be determined from your CV and if granted an interview, it is then time to “sell yourself” with confidence.
