A Welsh girls guide to job interviews

There are few things scarier than job interviews, So if you’ve got an interview lined up soon, take a load off babe, I’ve got you sorted.

Now we all bullshit our CV, and it’s all good and well writing that you captained the Netball Team at school, because they’re hardly going to ask you to show them your best ball pass in the middle of a conference room. Where you can shine though, is through your honesty. So I’ve compiled a list of the toughest questions that guaranteed always come up, feel free to rob these answers.

Q. What are your greatest strengths?
A. My eyebrows/ acrylics / Hair

Q. What are your weaknesses?
A. Rugby lads and chocolate (Because lets be honest, who can resist either?)

Q. What would you bring to this role?
A. Doughnuts for the entire office every Monday and Friday.

Q. If you were to take on this role, what would you do first?
A. Arrive on time (they love that) pop the kettle on, offer to make the coffee’s (team player) then turn my computer on. Obv.

Q. What are you most proud of? Try something like;
A. One time, my bezzy said she could get us VIP in Soda, when the rugby team were there, but my other mate was absolutely wrecked like, so I ended up taking her home instead, even though I had a brand new dress on, that looked proper wag worthy. (Shows loyalty and maturity)

Q.Give an example of a time when you worked as part of a team?
A. Me and the girls were shopping down the Hayes, and we noticed Urban Outfitters were having a Sale. My mate had a date coming up with this new boyo she’s got her eye on, so we were looking for a fab new outfit for her, when we spotted this lush tartan dress. But when we got to the tills she realised she’d left her wallet at home! Warra mare, but me an the girls got all our cash together, and bought it for her. It was piwr team work.

Q.Give an example of a time when you worked well alone?
A.When I have to paint my nails on my right hand, or
A. Every time I’m home alone and I have to zip my dress up.

Q. Why did you leave your last job?
A. I wasn’t getting paid anywhere near enough money to keep me in my lifestyle.

Q.Why do you want this job?
A. It’s closer to Mill Lane so I can nip out for lunchtime cocktails/
A. It’s loads more money, so I don’t need to worry about having to hide my gas bills in the takeaway draw, cos I spent all my wages on a new clutch.

Q.Tell me about a difficult scenario at work and how you dealt with it?
A. An ex-colleague of mine thought for months that I didn’t take sugar in my brew. So as not to hurt her feelings, I never mentioned it, but the secret trips back to the kitchen were doin my head in like. So I eventually brought it up. It was incredibly embarrassing for both of us, but I’m glad it was resolved.

Q.What do you know about our company?
A. Loads Always follow them on Twitter before your interview and swat up on all their tweets. That should be more than enough tbf. But bookmark their website on your phone just in case, and show them in the interview, they’ll bloody love that.

The rest is up to you fab ladies. Good luck babe! xx
