Welcome to Section 1 of the 'Interview for Success' course. This section provides an insight into what each of the main interview styles, used around the world, involves.
An overview of what is involved in a 'Behavioural Competency' interview. These interviews are often called a 'Behavioral Interview' or a 'Competency Interview'. It just depends on where you live in the world. Most American companies refer to it as a 'Behavioral Interview'. Whereas in the UK and Ireland they tend to call them 'Competency Interviews', but the increase in American Technology companies in these locations means the phrase Behavioural Interview is becoming more popular.
This lecture looks at what is involved in a 'Technical Interview'. Technical questions can be asked in a 'Structured Interview' too.' These interviews are often used for technical roles such as engineering, technology, scientific, medical, accountancy and many other roles.
Video and digital interviews have grown massively in the last few years but none more so than during the Covid-19 pandemic. Remote interviews have become a useful way for employers to still interview you. And these days with great video conferencing software like Zoom, Skype, Go To Meeting etc it is so easy to interview you from anywhere in the world. There are some things to watch out for though. This part explains what the differences are between the different styles of video/digital interviews.
This part will give you insight into what a 'Casual Interview' is all about. These are quite rare but feature in laid back companies or where you are being headhunted. Sometimes these are referred to as a 'coffee and chat' meeting. This part explains why you can't afford to be 'casual' about this type of interview.
Welcome to Section 2 of the course. In this section you will build on your knowledge by doing a 'deep dive' into what a Structured Interview is composed of. You will find out how to compose answers to the common questions, including 'Tell us about yourself', 'Why do you want to leave you current company?', 'What are your Career Aspirations?', 'What has been your biggest achievement?', 'What has been your biggest learning experience?', 'Why do you want to work here?', 'What do you know about the company?', 'What do you know about the job?', 'What are the market trends?', 'What challenges do you see for yourself?' and for management interviews, 'What will be your 30/60/90 day plan?'. That is a lot of great information to cover. Let's dive in!
This lecture lets you know what you need to include in the answers to 'Why do you want to leave?' and 'Why do you want to join' questions There is a great tool that will help you assess your motivations, to both leave and join, in the resource section. There is also an in depth list of questions in the resource section that will help you research the reasons for wanting to join their company.
This lecture gives you an insight into this fast growing in popularity question. 'What has been your biggest failure or learning experience?' often seems quite daunting to answer, as no one likes to talk about their failings in an interview. This lecture explains why they are asking the question and once you understand why and see how to answer this your perspective will be changed and you will answer this with ease.
This lecture looks at the often asked, 'What do you know about us? question. Even if you are interviewing internally it will benefit you to do your research on what the company does. This lecture considers the use of both macro and micro information gathering to answer this question well.

This lecture will be relevant in so far as a particular industry can predict post covid-19 market trends. Bear this in mind when structuring your answer.
This answer is a diplomatic minefield! 'Who are our Biggest Competitors?' is normally asked of management candidates, or sales and marketing professionals. But it can be asked of anyone interviewing. This lecture explains how important it is to answer this correctly and how to avoid any diplomatic incidents.
