Preparing For Your Interview

Bonnie-banner

How to prepare for a successful interview

We conduct our interviews in a professional, yet relaxed setting. Most interviews include a panel of BC Housing staff members, including a recruiter and the hiring manager.

You can expect general questions about your résumé and cover letter as well as more specific questions that will determine whether you have the right skills, temperament and aptitude for the position. The recruiter also asks competency-based behavioural questions. We welcome questions from you about the position and about the work environment at BC Housing.

Interviews may last up to two hours and pre-interview skills testing often requires one hour. If you drive to your interview, please ensure you have paid for at least three hours of parking.

Before your interview:

  • Know who you are meeting with and bring the contact phone number you were given
  • Review the job description
  • Write down any questions you have so you can ask them at the end of the interview

Testing

Pre-interview testing may include job-specific examination for skills such as keyboard speed and accuracy, MS Office proficiency and written exercises.
