3 Important Tips to Help You Prepare for Your Interview with Ace Personnel | Nanny Employment Vancouver

The following are three strategies you can use to not only increase your chances of landing a nanny job with Ace Personnel, but also to see if this job is a good fit for you.

1. Know Your Resume

Any work experience or skills listed on your CV are fair game to talk about during the interview. We may pick things out from it and ask you to elaborate. Even though you may have a previous job listed that was many years ago, we might ask you to explain what you did at that job and you will be responsible for providing an answer.

2. Provide Relevant Examples from Past Experiences in all Responses

When conducting an interview and posing questions, our nanny employment agency seeks to verify whether or not certain (prerequisite) experiences and skills have been attained by a given candidate.
When answering questions, we encourage you to start with the big idea. For instance, let’s say you are asked “How do you handle a challenging client?” You would begin by answering it with the following statement, “I usually handle a challenging client using the following strategies….” Then, you would offer two or three supporting details.
When speaking about relevant experience, it would be helpful to frame your answers in SAB format: explain the situation/problem, describe the steps you took to resolve the problem, and discuss how your actions benefited the client.

3. Line up Questions for the Interviewer

Come to the interview with some relevant questions for the interviewer that demonstrate your knowledge of the company as well as your seriousness for the job you are applying for. Our interviewers will always ask if you have any questions, and no matter what, you should have one or two ready. Write them down on a piece of a paper and bring them to the interview to avoid stumbling. As the interviewers answer your questions, it is common practice to take notes.
