Interviews are your opportunity to show the company you have applied to work with, your strengths and experience that make you perfect for their vacancy. Interviews can be undertaken in a number of ways. Directly with the company, through a procurement recruitment agency or other agency. They can take the standard format of one to one interviews or be based around a panel. The style of the interview set up will depend very much on the job role that you are applying for and the seniority of the position.
