Interview: Tips & Advice

2015

"In my opinion, the interview for Knight Frank is rather different than for most companies, and the process includes a telephone interview and a 'speed dating' type interview; where HR and two senior employees interview you on your drive and knowledge."
Intern, London
"For the interview process you should be aware of the current market, and economic conditions in addition to being knowledgeable of senior partners, and the company."
Capital Markets, Intern, London
"Following a telephone interview mainly consisting of competency questions, there is a face-to-face interview with three different Knight Frank employees. Make sure that you stand out by sounding as interesting as possible, be strong at answering competency questions and have good market knowledge."
Intern, London
"Definitely be confident and passionate, but above all you should be friendly throughout the interview process."
Intern, London
"Alongside knowing your CV and preparing thoroughly, as a candidate coming for interview you should be friendly, open, as charming as you can be and positive."

"Don't focus too much on researching Knight Frank and remembering facts and figures, try to relax and come across well. At this stage it is a personal reflection of where you are so far, rather than a display of your property knowledge that will impress."
London
"They are, of course, interested in your property knowledge (in relation to your experience) but they are also interested in your personality and the way you think. Make sure you are engaging and knowledgeable."
London
"Be confident and approachable - KF is an advisory firm so you will need to be good with people. Do your research too."
London
"Research the company thoroughly, know the Senior Partners names and know which departments you would most like to work in."
London
"Read up about the company and its associates. Find out who will be important employees within the business for you to make contact with. Be yourself - smile and be open yet professional."
London
"Research Knight Frank's recent business and have a clear understanding of the property market, i.e. big deals, pressures, forecasts, etc."
London
"Do your research! Learn about the company, what sets it apart, read the property news for a few weeks before the interview and know what you're talking about."
London
"My advice is to be enthusiastic about why you are interested in property and not to over rehearse. Also, read through your CV and be prepared to talk about any of the points."
London
"Prepare well and have some news examples memorised, (as well as some which are specific to Knight Frank). Also, think about how you will answer skills-related questions using your best examples to demonstrate these skills as effectively as possible."
