1-Day Comprehensive Course on How to Perform at Best in a Job Interview. Can be Extended to 1.5 Days.
In the course of a lifetime, most people tend to apply for new positions and change jobs at a few times. The process of getting into a new role or obtaining a new position often involves interviews. Success in an interview in majority of cases guarantees getting hired. The information and skills needed for achieving success in an interview process can be learned and mastered through effective training and practice.
In this course, we cover the life cycle of an interview from the beginning to the end, while explaining pre and post interview activity and processes. This course introduces the delegates to the objective of the interview, the necessary preparation before attending the interview, interviewer’s mentality and purpose, different types of interview questions and the affect of applicant’s image, behaviour and body language during the interview. Essential interview skills such as communication skills, effective listening skills, how to handle salary questions, responding to common interview questions, reducing anxiety and making the best impression are also covered in the course. Effective tactics and strategies accompany question examples in every stage and enhance the process of learning new techniques.
This highly practical course contains a vast number of practical exercises, real life scenarios and case studies which help greatly in imitating an actual interview. The course encourages delegates to participate and interact in a stimulated interview environment during the training session and prepare for different stages of the interview process. Each main section in the course is followed by practical exercises to accelerate the learning process and increase memory retention.
“Effective tactics and strategies accompany question examples in every stage and enhance the process of learning new techniques.”
These exercises become progressively more sophisticated until at the end of the course you will take the role of an interviewee and go through a final simulated interview which is scored accordingly. Delegates get to practice many methods during the course and also receive detailed course material for study and reference after the course.
