+ Before the Interview
11 lectures 37:06

Preparing yourself mentally for an interview is just as important as the structured preparations you will need to do. This lecture covers four key points to help you mentally prepare for your interview, how this relates to developing a positive communication style and why this is so important.

Step 1: Mental preparation

Before you apply for any role you need to be clear on what the employer is looking. In this lecture we will explore why this is so important and how to discover this information by working through a detailed example of breaking down a sample job advertisement.

Step 2.1: Planning - What are they asking for?

This lecture covers techniques to help you discover your motivations for applying for a particular role and why it is important that you are clear on this before going into any interview.

Step 2.2: Planning - Be clear why you want the role

In this lecture we will explore the best way to help you prepare for those often dreaded interview questions and how to look at this aspect of the interview process in a different, more positive light. Here you will learn some of the most commonly asked interview questions and strategies to help you respond to questions confidently and with conviction in your interview.

Step 2.3: Planning - Practice the standard questions

In this lecture we'll cover a powerful technique to help you respond effectively to those tricky interview questions that are looking to discover any weaknesses you have.

Step 2.4: Planning - Turning a negative into a positive

An interview is not just about the interviewee responding to questions asked by the interviewer(s). In this short lecture we'll discuss the benefit of you preparing a few of your own questions to ask the interviewers.

Step 2.5: Planning - Creating your questions (to ask)

In this short lecture, we'll cover some key points you need to take into consideration when deciding what to wear to your interview. As simple as it sounds, this is very important to ensure a successful interview and we'll cover the reasons why it's so important.

Step 2.6: Planning - What to wear

Would you attend an interview for a role you applied for without understanding what the company does? If you did, how do you think this would affect the outcome of your interview? In this lecture you will discover three key areas of research you need to do before your interview and how doing (or not doing) your research will impact your success.

Step 3: Research

You are being assessed from the very first contact that you have with your potential future employer. In this lecture discover tips to help you create a great first impression, despite the employer not having met you in person as yet.

Step 4: Responses - Dealing with your first contact

In this lecture learn strategies to help you stay on top of your nerves and reduce any unnecessary stress on the day of our interview.

Step 5: Pre-interview - What you need to do on the day of your interview

Review this four point checklist as a reminder for your "On the Day" pre-interview preparation.

+ During the Interview
5 lectures 22:00

In this lecture you will learn techniques to help you create a great first impression with your interviewers on the day of your interview before they even get to asking you any questions.

Step 6: First Impressions - Creating a great first in impression in just 30 secs

Being present in the interview is a powerful technique to help build the interviewer's confidence in you. How? In this lecture we'll cover five key techniques that will help you to avoid being distracted by your own thoughts during the interview, allowing you to truly listen to what the interviewers are saying.

Step 7: Be Present - Techniques to create the interviewers confidence in you

In this lecture we'll broadly cover the importance of body language in effective communication. We'll go over some of the main non-verbal cues to be aware of both in yourself and the interviewers and appropriate reactions to these cues to improve your chances of a successful interview.

Step 8: Reading the room - Reading and reacting to non-verbal cues

Selling yourself is not an easy task. This lecture helps you to see this process from a different perspective and feel more comfortable about selling yourself to the interview panel, without seeming over confident.

Step 9: Selling yourself - You're the only one in the room who can do this

This lecture will cover the importance of making a great lasting impression with the interview panel and the steps you need to take to wrap your interview successfully.
