How to Tackle the Interview
There is no such thing as a perfect interview, but there is a method for tackling it anxiety-free: be yourself. Here’s some advice about the interview with YOOX Group
Not just a jacket and tie!
At work, it is important to be comfortable in the clothing you wear. Let’s put it this way: even the person interviewing you will be dressed as is most comfortable and appropriate for his/her job. Don’t be shy: before committing yourself to a tie, if you have any doubts about how to dress for the interview, ask whoever selected you for some information.
Relax and be yourself
It will be easier for you to make a good impression if you don’t exaggerate, but rather present yourself simply and enthusiastically, with a naturally positive attitude.
The simplest way not to make mistakes is to speak honestly about your professional qualifications and experience.
Indulge your curiosity and… study us!
Often, people who have successful interviews have a knowledge of our Group that is anything but superficial; they know about what we do, about trends in the sector and about the position to which they are applying (what work they’ll have to do, ther reference market, etc.)
Want some advice? Play to your advantage; try to arrive at the interview knowing us well: we should be the ones discovering you!
Give substance to your thoughts
Doing well at the interview does not just mean giving the right answers to a certain number of questions. We don’t just want to see if you answer “well”; we want to understand your way of thinking. Therefore, don’t be afraid to express your thoughts: put your reasoning into words; allow us to follow you too. We’ll give you the opportunity to convince us: to better evaluate your knowledge of the sector and your actual abilities, we’ll probably put you to several tests, from business cases to aptitude tests.
Get to know us
Remember: the interview is not only a time for us to get to know you, but also for you to get to know us better. Therefore, relax, ask questions, listen, learn! It just might be the beginning of a long voyage. Good luck!
