Interview: Self-reflection

    Task: Complete a self-reflection of your interview performance. Select one criterion assessed from each of the three interview feedback sections completed by the

    interviewer against the self-rating you applied. Identify where there has been a difference between

    your self-evaluation and the evaluation of the interviewer. Explain how the rating and feedback was

    different and give a strategy on how you could improve your performance in this area the next time

    you go for an interview. An example has been provided.

Suggested time: 30 minutes

    Criterion assessed Strategies to improve

    How the rating and feedback was different Example

    Reference to support I rated myself very high in this area and the interviewer rated me as satisfactory. I

    material thought my portfolio was really good as it had lots of stuff in it. The interviewer

    said my portfolio was not easy to follow. He also said that my portfolio included

    stuff that was not relevant and that having a big portfolio doesn’t mean that it is

    good.

    Strategy to improve

    I am going to go through my portfolio and include a cover page and section pages

    for my documents so it is easier to follow. I will remove documents that I got from

    primary school and include only recent certificates and reports. I will include a

    reference I got from my workplace supervisor.
