Learn how to showcase your skills, exude confidence and make a lasting impression on your potential future employer.

Research the company

Understand the company’s mission, values, and products to demonstrate your interest. Research the wider packaging industry and determine why kp would be your employer of choice.

Highlight relevant skills and experience

Emphasise skills that align with the job description and provide examples of how you’ve used them. It's a good idea to have any supporting data on hand that can reinforce your narrative when possible. Aim to identify measurable impacts and outcomes of your work.

Competency based/Behavioural questions

You will be asked to describe a number of previous experiences. Listen to each question carefully and use the STAR method (Situation, Task, Action, Result) to structure your response.

  1. Situation (S): Begin by describing the context of the situation. Provide background details, as well as the specific challenge or task you were faced with.
  2. Task (T): Explain your role in the given situation and elaborate on the objectives you were tasked to accomplish or resolve.
  3. Action (A): Detail the actions you undertook in order to tackle the situation and accomplish the task. Discuss the steps you took, the skills you employed, and your decision-making process. Focus on your specific contributions.
  4. Result (R): Share the outcome of your actions. What happened as a result of your efforts? Quantify the impact if possible, and emphasise any positive outcomes or lessons learned.

Using the STAR method enables you to present well-structured and comprehensive answers that showcases your abilities and demonstrates your problem-solving skills to the interviewer.

Make sure you have good internet connection

In case of a remote interview via Teams, ensure your device, camera, microphone and internet connection are working well before the interview to prevent any technical issues during the interview. Ensure you are in a place without any external interruptions or noises.
