Preparing for interviews

At Maersk, we want you to bring your whole self to work, and exactly the same goes for our application interviews. Here, you can learn some useful hints and tips about our interview process, how to prepare and make your interview a success.

Be yourself

Remember, we want to meet the real you! You don't have to answer everything perfectly or memorise your responses like a script. We're more interested in hearing about you, your interests, your career goals and why you think Maersk is the right place for you.

We always look forward to meeting new talent.

Your experience

One of the of the best ways to show us you're the right fit for the job is through examples of relevant experience. 

Think about the requirements of the role and how your own experiences could help you meet those requirements. Remember, your experiences can come from work, but also from your education, social life or what you do in your spare time.

An example might be a group project you've worked on - this could help you demonstrate good team-working and collaboration skills.

Special requirements and accessibility

Everyone is different when it comes to interviews. So if you have any special requirements, just let us know and we'll do our very best to accommodate you.

Answering questions

Usually we'll ask you to tell us about your experience and how you have achieved your results in your previous career.

This could be a question such as 'tell us about a time when you demonstrated good team-working skills?'

When answering these questions, it can help to structure your answer. A good way to remember a structure is STARR - Situation, Task, Action, Result, Reflection
  • Situation: Give us a snapshot of the background for your example. How did it come about? Who were you with? When did it happen?
  • Task: What was the main challenge? What were your main objectives?
  • Action: Explain what you did to overcome the challenge and tell us why you chose that course of action.
  • Result: What was the outcome? What did you achieve? How did your actions impact on the situation?
  • Reflection: What did you learn? How have you used this in other situations?

Other hints and tips

  • If you don’t understand a question, you can always ask us to repeat or rephrase it.
  • Remember, you can ask us questions as well. Always come prepared with a few questions so you can find out more about Maersk and the job.
  • Some interviews involve tasks or challenges to be completed on the day. If this is the case, we'll let you know in advance.
  • Relax, be friendly and don't be afraid to smile!

All interviewed candidates will get verbal feedback

Dress code

We don't have a formal dress code, so when it comes to your interview, just wear something you feel comfortable in.
