How did Aimee make her interview a success?

Interviews for jobs in the creative industries can be very different from interviews in other sectors. In this video we meet two people who have recently been involved in a real life job interview and selection process for a creative job, from both sides of the table. Aimee Kent was recruited to the role of assistant fashion tutor for the Eco Chic Fashion Freak clothes recycling project at Impact Arts in late 2010. In this video, Impact Arts HR manager Barry Crawford talks about how Aimee performed in the interview and describes the reasons she was selected for the job. He says Aimee was well prepared and showed a good understanding of the project. He says that her enthusiasm and preparation made her the best candidate for the job. Aimee discusses her own experience of being interviewed for the job, saying that she had done a lot of homework, researching the company and making sure she understood the role. She brought examples of her work to show the interview panel. She says that she was very nervous before and after the interview, and she was surprised to be asked to introduce herself and her past experiences at the start of the interview rather than the interview beginning with work-related questions immediately. Barry says that Aimee could have been more confident and proud of her achievements in the interview, and that this is something she should try to do in future interviews. Aimee talks about how excited she was to find out she had got the job.
