Requirements
  • This course purely covers the body language of a job interview. It does NOT cover how to write an application letter, how to find the right job or how what to say during interviews. Students are expected to have these skills themselves or take other courses to develop these skills.
Description

There are plenty of courses out there which teach you how to write a perfect job application letter, how to prepare for the interview and what to say during the interview. 

But that's not all there is to it!

Our nonverbal communication make up a large chunk of our interaction with other people. Moreover, your first impression is critical! Research has shown that those first few seconds are make-or-break for getting the job or being rejected.

This course is here to help you understand how to make the best use of body language and other nonverbal communication during your job interview. 

If you're doing getting rejected time and time again after a job interview then this course is for you. It will help you bolster the power of body language to improve the chances of you getting the job!

What is in the course

The course is made up of several different sections.

In section 1 we're going to look into the importance of having the right body language. 

Section 2 covers how you can use body language even before actually applying. In this section you'll find techniques that will help improve your first impression, even on paper.

In section 3 we're getting down to business: the actual interview. How to sit, stand, talk and interact with the interviewer to maximize your chances of getting a job.

Section 4 covers the exit: you keep making an impression until you leave the building and are out of sight. The last impression you make can be just as crucial as the first one, so it's important to get this right.

Completion time

You can watch the course in <FILL IN TIME>. Does that mean that once you've completed the course you can immediately apply everything? 

Unfortunately not. 

Applying the techniques and tactics taught in this course takes time. You will need to practice with friends or family to build your skills. 

Give yourself the time to learn the skills and please don't cram this course before that job interview that you have coming up tomorrow morning! Because while you may get some elements from it you won't be taking away as is intended.

What this course isn't

This course is NOT a magic bullet. Body language will not fill up gaps in your resume. It will not help you scam people into giving you a job. The course will not teach you what to say or how to write the perfect application letter. It focuses purely on what body language you should use during your interview.


Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for students who have trouble passing job interviews. If you get invited for a job interview but are nervous about how to make the best impression then this course is for you.
  • This course is NOT for people who believe that body language is the magic bullet to get a job. Having the right body language will help improve your appearance but it will not automatically get you a job.

What do I mean when I talk about body language? What is it exactly and how does it work? Why is it important. We're looking at all that in this video.

A question that often comes up is the issue of authenticity. Shouldn't you just be yourself? Should you start play-acting your way through a job interview? Here are my thoughts on that.

Section 2: Before you apply
6 Lectures 01:00:01

We normally make our first impressions face to face. This is still true, but your profile picture will also give people a first impression about you! Let's talk a bit about this and see if your profile picture is up to the task.

A handshake is part of the first impression that you will be making. Get it right and you instantly built a bit of rapport. Here how it's done.

Your body language impacts how you feel. You can use this by power posing when you're writing the letter to boost your confidence in your ability to get the job.

What the thing we do when we're waiting? We pull our phones out and start browsing, reading email or checking our social media. Here's why that's a terrible idea to do at a job interview.

Conclusion
1 Lecture 02:53

Congratulations! You've made it through the course! 

We've covered a lot of ground in these videos and it will take time to absorb everything. 

The best thing to do is to practice what you've learned in a mock job interview. Work with a family member, friend or colleague to test drive your new skills and to improve upon them. That's the best way to make sure you ace the job interview!

Thank you for taking the course and good luck at your job interview! Be sure to let me know how it went :).

Cheers,

Michiel

Body language trainer

Hi!

My name is Michiel Andreae. I'm a body language trainer from The Netherlands. 

I started out on Udemy a couple of years ago as I was learning about Gamification. After completing those I stuck around to learn new stuff from different courses, and that's how I got around to creating my own course now! (Still a work in progress). 

My strength is teaching people how to use body language in their daily life. What do you need to pay attention to? What do you need to do to improve your own image? Body language plays a major role in both of these elements.

Want to get in touch? Send me and email at michiel@bodylanguagecoach.nl or add me on Linkedin.

Cheers,

Michiel
