Know the market in which Aus Post is currently operating, but mainly be well-read and be able to talk abut yourself in a business context.
Be yourself, and have achievements you are proud of.
Familiarise yourself with the company via their website and annual reports.
Be yourself, companies are looking for 'fit' more than anything else.

Practise behavioural questions with your friends and family, and write down examples if you need. Always follow the STAR model.
Accept the changes in business. Change is everything nowadays.
Research the company, understand the challenges it is facing as technology and shifting consumer preferences disrupts our core businesses, and be genuine in the interviews
Be yourself and try to work well in a team and not try to overpower other people.
Practice the psychometric tests online, practice talking to yourself via your webcam and read through some sample behavioural questions.
Be yourself. Be proactive in the interview/assessment process. Don�t wait for things to happen, make them happen! Do your research about the company, its values and vision.
Just be yourself and always remember to answer your question using STAR method
