The Interview

How to ACE the Interview.

This is the second course in the JobPrep Series – How to ACE the Interview.

 

Having been in recruitment for over 15 years and completed over 8,000 interviews it constantly amazes me how people just turn up for job interviews with little, if any, preparation and how they don’t realize that they can massively improve their chances of being successful if they just understood the process and how to get ready for it. On so many occasions I have seen the well prepared ‘B’ Grade Candidate beat the unprepared ‘A’ Grade Candidate.

 

How to ACE the Interview comprises 15 short videos that break down the process, how to prepare, what goes wrong, and what to do to maximize your chance of getting the job. I will take about 2 hours to complete and will give you a full understanding of the pitfalls and simple things that you can do to get ahead of the competition.
For most people, going to a job interview is not something that they do often so this course will give you everything you need to make sure that you put your best foot forward!
