    I got an e-mail on Friday for a job interview but i'm a little confused about the selection process method. they sent me this:

    Can you please allow up to 1 hour for the selection process.

    The interview will comprise of competency based set of questions, expanding on your past work experience and suitability for this job role.

    does this mean they will pick on the day?

    just curious, thank you.

    You havent said what the job is or level of position.

    Theres no indication they will pick and tell on the day although employers differ. Is there a 2nd interview? 1st interviews tend to be about deciding if you have the skills (pass or fail) with 2nd interviews about whether yu would fit.

    Focus on the job profile they gave you and expect to display the skills in it. 1hr interviews arent long, so it should be simple and fast.

    No, it just means they will ask competency questions to determine if you are suitable for the job

    Not every job has 2 interviews, all the roles I've been applying for only have one.

    The fact that i asked if there was a 2nd interview, would seem to confirm your post.

    sorry I misread your post, read that as 'is it a second interview' not 'is there a second interview'

    No worries, sorry if that was a bit sharp. it would be nice if the Op wnats assistance she could have given a bit more background and then we could have made a better suggestion on what it might mean.
