She then explained the difference between resume and curriculum vitae and stressed that there are different purposes for each resume type such as the chronological format, functional or skills format and the combination format. She also mentioned the different types of interviews such as traditional/resume-based interviews, behavioural interviews, group interviews, panel interviews, etc. “A very important aspect while preparing for interviews is to research the organisation which the candidate was applying to, to dress formally, to be on time, to pay attention to verbal and non-verbal communication,” Clare added.
