Description

“The uncreative mind can spot wrong answers, but it takes a very creative mind to spot wrong questions.”

Anthony Jay

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 effect 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.

In this day-long highly practical course delegates will learn:

About the Design Philosophy of Interview Skills Course

The course is designed with the latest advances in training and skill transfer where delegates will be going through the content repeatedly from many different angles until they can memorise the topic during the course. Many areas are covered as discussed in the course description. To make sure the content is memorised easily, each topic is followed with a specific exercise that helps the delegates to understand what was just covered.

Due to a large amount of theoretical content in the course, it can easily be extended to more than one day. Optional exercises are provided along with guidelines on how to extend the course. If you follow with a multi-day course, you can spend more time on certain critical topics or repeat certain exercises to make sure that delegates will completely learn the new skills and distance themselves from their previous bad interview habits.

We believe that the best way to learn is by examples as demonstrated by many studies. As a result, just about every topic in the course is covered with comprehensive examples so that delegates can see exactly what they need to do or say in a given situation. Experience shows that learning using examples is extremely effective especially when new topics are described for the first time. This method of teaching is also very quick which means more content can be covered in a given time.

All in the all, the course material is an excellent resource for trainers who are engaged in teaching Interview Skills and considering the current global financial market, it is indeed an important area worth considering.
