Get ready for your interview!

Here are some tips that will help you prepare for an interview and might just enable you to join one of our teams!

1. Be prepared!

Take the time to browse our website and LinkedIn pages to glean information about the activities of the team or department you’re interested in. We will be interested in hearing what motivates you to want to join our National Assembly family so come prepared to share your reasons with us. Reflect on the mandates offered, how you would go about fulfilling them, what contributions you could make and what suggestions you have to improve our practices. We’re all ears and keen on staying in the loop about best practices! Any recommendations you make will therefore be taken into consideration.

2. Practise for your interview!

The Internet includes loads of job interview advice, including typical questions you can expect to be asked. Look them up and be sure to have some ready answers while remaining natural during your interview.

For example: How can we help with your professional development? We want to know how we can work with you and what we can do to support you in your career development.

3. Be confident!

On the day of the interview, wear something that makes you feel confident. Flash your most engaging smile when you arrive and remember to breathe. It is not an interrogation, but rather a discussion and an opportunity for you to launch your career. No one knows you better than you… so remember to open up so we can get to know you too. This is the time to sell yourself and to showcase your strongest skills and qualities. We would like you to share your professional or educational experiences and explain how they have contributed to your growth and development. This is your time to speak up and to shine!

4. Ask questions!

Interviews can be stressful, since it seems like all the attention is on you. However, don’t forget that this is also your opportunity to ask us questions to figure out if our organization is the right place for you to propel your career forward.
