Job Interview Skills


“Death will be a great relief. No more interviews.” – Katharine Hepburn

You have just received a phone call to let you know you have been shortlisted for a job and you are being invited for an interview – what now? How do I prepare, What questions will they ask?

In Australia, the job interview is still the number one tool used for selecting a person from a pool of shortlisted applicants for a job. How well you do at the interview will determine whether you get the job or not. But you struggle at job interviews. You don’t know what you should say, you don’t prepare properly, your nerves kick in, and the answering of questions which you were not expecting becomes almost impossible. And then the less experienced candidate with that natural “gift of the gab” walks away with the job.

This workshop will give you a strategic approach which you can adapt and apply to every job interview. It will equip
you with the knowledge and the tools so that you can prepare effectively and do the things that you need to do to
give yourself the best chance of acing the interview
