Mastering the Interview (Short Course)

$35.00 Inc GST







The interview is one of the key elements of the job search process. As with any skill, we can get better at it with preparation and practice. In this short course, students are able to explore how to prepare for an interview and become familiar with the types of questions to expect, as well as the questions they should think about asking. They will learn how to prepare for second interviews, testing, and shadowing, as well as how to follow up on their interview sessions.

This short course is perfect for trainers who work directly with job seekers, providing them with advanced skills and techniques. The job market can be fierce at times, and having any edge over the competition helps job seekers secure that highly desirable position, the one for which they have worked, studied, and prepared.
