Featured on majority of the major news channels as an expert on "How to interview and get the job you want" we have now developed an 1 hour course that walks through the 10 proven steps to interviewing that we have formed over the past 40+ years. Interviewing for a job is a skill that you have to master just like any other skill that is important to being successful. Ever wonder why you did not get that job you interviewed for? Why they chose another candidate over you when you had all of the skills to do the job successfully? This course will prepare you so that you don't have to ask yourself those questions anymore.

Finding a job these days is very competitive so when you finally land a job interview- you want to ensure that you are putting your best foot forward to Ace the Interview.

By the end of this course you will feel confident walking in to ANY interview because you will have prepared appropriately!
This lecture is an Introduction to me and why I am qualified to speak with you about preparing appropriately for an interview. In this section you will take a mock interview; I will then walk you through understanding how to effectively research the company you are interviewing with. After company research we will walk through creating your skills inventory along with strong first and last impressions and then how to follow-up after a successful interview. I'm confident that by the time you get to the Re-Take Lecture your answers will be considerably more strategic and in turn you will feel confident walking into ANY interview. Enjoy!
I have been in recruiting and career coaching for over 15 years working for the Recruiting Firm my father started in 1967. Our combined experience has given us the opportunity to have interviewed over 30,000 people, place over 10,000 people in new jobs and have strong relationships with hiring managers so that we understand what they are interested in hearing on a job interview and the common mistakes candidates make while interviewing. I have worked in strong economies and during recessions; the tools we have put together help with any interview during any economic time.
This lecture walks through the common questions or "topics" that are covered on interviews. Our skills database will allow you to prepare appropriately for any question that is asked even if it falls outside of the common questions covered in this section.
I've enclosed a print-out of those common questions.
It is very important to understand the company you are interviewing for. It can change the functions of the position you are interviewing for; the types of questions you should be addressing with the Hiring Manager and supporting materials you may need to bring on the interview. This section will walk through how to approach researching the company you are interviewing with. I have also enclosed a summary and some additional information regarding company research.
The skills database is one of the most important parts of ensuring a successful interview. Putting together a skills database forces you to go through your background with a fine tooth comb. You have to think of college courses, past experiences, specific accomplishments, detailed projects along with personality traits in order to align your skills to fit the hiring company's needs. The document enclosed will outline this excercise.
Trust and credibility are essential to the success of an interview. Through your accomplishments and achievements you can build that trust with the Hiring Manager. This section along with the worksheet attached details how to go through that process effectively.
When a Hiring Manager asks you if you have any questions that is typically the end of the interview. Ensure that your "last impression" is as strong as your "first impression" and ask function specific; "no-fluff" questions so that you continue to prove you know what you are talking about!
We will go through the same mock interview you did in Lecture 3 and discuss how you should be approaching the answers after building your skills database and matching your background to fit the company's current needs.
Impressions are a very "real" thing in life and especially when interviewing. We will walk through impressions for both In-Person Interviews and Phone Interviews and how to ensure you are putting your best foot forward on every stage of an interview.
Now that you have had a successful interview you want to be proactive,professional and tactical in your follow-up with the interviewing company.
Congratulations on finishing this course! If you utilize the process discussed we are confident that you will start seeing the rewards of your hard work.
