About the course
For young professionals entering into the job market, or for those who are seeking a new job for the first time in years, interviewing presents a challenging hurdle that must be crossed in order to find a job of any kind. While jobs have remained much the same over the past 20 years, interviewing and the interviewing process have changed drastically. Many people now have very specific requirements for even entry level positions, and there are more people looking for jobs than available jobs. In fact, the average interviewer will have 118 different applicants for each job.
We've all been there. You go in for an interview, and even though you're perfectly qualified for the position, you don't even get a callback. Why? You didn't stand out to the interviewer.
That means you have to take steps to stand out, in your resume and cover letter, and during your interview. Interviewers are often overworked, not always qualified for what they are doing, and are usually looking for things that are only known to them. If you want to succeed and get your ideal job, you have to master a range of interviewing skills including communication, body language, personal expression, and much more.
This course will help you to master the job interviewing skills you need to maximize your chances of getting the job. Interviewing is a skill, and the more you know, the better you will be at it.
