    If you call up the ANZSCO description of your job, the CO will be wanting to check that your responsibilities at work mean that you do things to match almost everything on that ANZSCO list. (There isn't a standard set of questions or answers, because people's jobs all differ slightly.) The CO will probably have received answers to a questionnaire about your work from your employer, covering the same point, and will be checking that you are both saying about the same. (Not the exact same words, but that you both agree what you have to do.)

    Hi Everyone...

    This forum has given me a lot till date and its my time to share my experience so far. Below is my interview experience:

    Introduction:

    1. Interview lasted for 40 minutes.
    2. CO introduced herself.
    3. Mentioned the purpose of the call that all the applicants not having the Job offer has to go through the interview stage.
    4. Confirmed if she was audible or not.
    5. Informed that she is going to type whatever I am saying..

    Security Verification Questions (In the order I can recall now):

    TIP: Keep your EOI form open and should go through it before the interview. Know all your facts.

    1. Date of Birth
    2. Name of Secondary School
    3. In which year I moved to XYZ place
    4. Current Residential Address
    5. Date on which you applied for SM Visa application.
    6. When did you join your current employer..

    Interview Questions asked:

    1. Why you want to migrate?
    2. What job prospects you see for your field in NZ?
    3. Have you applied to the Jobs? Any interviews happened so far?
    4. What challenges you foresee in getting the Job?
    5. Where you plan to settle?
    6. Why NZ, Why Auckland.

    Questions I asked from CO:

    1. What are the next step in this process..
    2. How can I help you to get my work experience verification done..

    TIPS:

    1. Be prepared for all the above questions...
    2. Do research and prepare your own notes..
    3. Prepare excel sheets of whatever you have done for your Job, expenses etc... Before the interview. I have sent her an e-mail with 8 excel sheets with details of the Jobs I applied, recruiters list, expected expenses list, My wife career plan in NZ, Jobs she applied, Inquiries we made for kindergartens and their replies.. etc etc
    4. Be honest throughout the interview.. Be ready to provide the evidences for everything you are mentioning..
    5. Show eagerness to work in NZ..
    6. Be confident..
    7. Keep all your notes handy.. Keep your EOI open..
    8. Know some companies of your field in NZ, should know names of friends and contacts. should know recruiters in your field.
    9. Keep on applying on the relevant jobs.. keep all the evidences..
    10. Know everything about your partner..
    11. Say some facts.. like according to this research.. NZ is the 4th Safest country, HDI is 0.93... Second in Quality of life etc etc..
    12. During my interview.. I took opportunities in many of the questions to say more than expected as I have to ensure that what ever I have prepared should not go unnoticed. But ofcourse it should make relevance to the question..
    13. preparation is the key..

    (This interview is the CO interview for someone who DOESN'T have a NZ job or offer. Harman01, you won't have to answer this range of questions - yours will be about your job description, and exactly what you have to do day to day at work.)

    Thanks, NZ2016.

    Hi J and M thanks. Can you suggest is my Co will ask only questions he asked to my employer or anything other than that else well? If you can share any sample of interview questions asked to employee will be really helpful? i know questions will differ but the trend must be sample...

    The CO does not HAVE to interview you, if the information he got from the paperwork and from your employer told him all he needed to know.

    Good luck and fingers crossed. ++++++++++++++++++++++
