Have a real think about why safety matters to you, and what you're going/looking to bring to work every day.
I would recommend always preparing before doing the interviews since most of them are behavioural questions.
Graduate, Brisbane but currently based in Gladstone
1. Be up to date on current events concerning your area and/or the company. 2. Networks are important; if you know anyone already working there, ask them to put a good word in for you. 3. Don't forget to smile.
Relax, it's not as daunting as you may think it is and be yourself.
boost the CV first and prepare something you did in the past that impressed everyone
Understand what major contracts are being worked on, and what you know from previous work. Uni experiences weren't as useful.
The best practice is to prepare responses to the typical questions listed above and be able to adapt these responses to the questions asked. Also be confident and clear when in the interview process.
- be calm - be honest - have fun - know your resume inside out as interviewers will pick at things to try and get to know you better - charity work and social clubs are your number 1 environment to learn core values and to apply them (if you haven't joined a unit club or done charity work then now is the time to apply yourself in your community)
Graduate, Tom Price
Read up on the STAR method, it makes answering questions a lot easier. Also just stay relaxed, the team is quite relaxed and easy to get along with.
Be yourself-your attitude is the most important consideration for the hiring team.
Learn and understand what Monadelphous does, the differences between East/West coast and the M&IS / EC divisions. If you can understand that, you've already got a good head start. If you can learn current projects being completed, even better.
Look through company values and have safety themed answers ready
Research the company and understand what they do. Remember their core values show enthusiasm and as much confidence as possible as you answer the questions (without being arrogant).
Don't treat the interview too formally, the people here prefer it to flow like a conversation.
Think of situations in your previous work place or just life in general that have been difficult and how you dealt with that.
I found the best way to get hired would be to be myself and build relationships. The other graduates that were hired were well spoken and didn't seem to stress about it too much.
Know the company values and the company culture. Try to know a bit about the job you're going for so you can ask appropriate questions
