How to prepare for a job interview in hospitality

If you’re looking for a position in the hospitality industry you may find it quite difficult. It’s common practice for two interviews to be conducted, so the employer can ensure they have the very best.

The hospitality industry prides itself on perfection and excellent service. You will have to deliver to the highest standard in an interview if you want to stand any chance.

Preparation is the key to giving a successful interview. But what kind of planning is required?

Here’s how to prepare for a job interview in the hospitality industry…

Do your research

You need to know what makes the company tick. Who do they serve? Who are their customers? What will be your daily tasks and responsibilities?

If you want to really impress the employer in the interview, you need to conduct research. The employer will easily be able to recognise that you’ve done your homework, and that you care about the role.

Swot up on the latest trends in the market, the customer feedback, the turnover, the current market position, and so on. Read their social media websites and give yourself a better understanding to help answer any difficult interview questions.

Make sure you present professionally

You will be expected to look your best in the hospitality industry. You are the face of the company, so presentation is everything. From the shoes you wear, to the way you comb your hair – everything matters. The second you walk into the interview room you will be judged on your appearance. Even your greeting and handshake will be assessed to see how friendly and approachable you come across.

The employer also wants to rely on you through the worst of times. Dealing with clients on a daily basis means you will have your fair share of complaints. Having a professional appearance will provide a better platform in which to deal with a complaint and reach a resolution. How can you be taken seriously if you don’t dress accordingly?

Be your undercover boss

OK, so you’re not the boss just yet. But that doesn’t mean to say you can’t go undercover to find out how things function. Visiting the company will give you a better understanding of how things work on a daily basis.

Partake in the service and spend some good quality time there. Make a note of all the great things they do, so you can reflect on that during the interview. Also, take note of anything you see wrong with their business. However, don’t attack them during the interview and provoke a reaction. Instead, use these faults to offer ideas and suggestions on how you could help improve their service.

Join a professional organisation

Being a member of a professional organisation in your industry can help demonstrate that you really care about your career. It helps show potential employers that you’re dedicated to the hospitality industry and want to be more involved with it. It also shows a commitment to professionalism and standards. Some organisations you might consider include:
