What is a Field-Related Interview - EPSO Assessment Centre?

During the Field-Related Interview, EPSO assessors will want to get a clear and precise idea of what you are worth as a professional in your field. This is a type of interview used in "Specialist" EPSO competitions. To understand how the Field-Related Interview is assessed and get some helpful tips on how to effectively prepare for it, we recommend you watch this methodology webinar.

How to prepare for the EPSO Assessment Centre?

Depending on the EPSO competition that you are undertaking the exams you will need to undertake at an EPSO Assessment Centre may vary. The most popular types of tests used by EPSO at their Assessment Centre are - Case Study, Competency-Based Interview (CBI), Situational Competency-Based Interview (SCBI), Field-Related Interview, Oral Presentation, Motivational Interview, and the Written Test in the field. To see which exercises you will need to undertake at your EPSO Assessment Centre it is best to check your competition's official Notice of Competition. EU Training has a wealth of resources available for you to prepare effectively for this very important exam phase - case study simulations, methodology webinars, interview simulation sessions, and even personal one-on-one coaching. A good starting point, however, is to watch this FREE introductory webinar to the EPSO Assessment Centre.

What questions do EPSO assessors ask at the Field-Related Interview?

You will get roughly the same questions as the ones that were asked in the Talent Screener. A key objective of the Field-Related Interview is to validate the image you have presented of yourself as a professional in the field. Assessors will want to get a real view of your experience and skills, so expect to get more detailed questions and be asked to clarify areas of obscurity. Basically, whatever is mentioned in the "list of duties" in the competition's official Notice of Competition could be a potential question. Why not put yourself to the test and join one of our Filed-Related Interview Virtual Simulation sessions?.
