"How to get hired" is a premium course by the Business English HQ team. In this course, our team walks students through the necessary steps to write an application, build a personal profile, construct a CV, write a cover letter, succeed at an interview, and perform well during an assessment centre.
The course is broken into 5 modules:
1. Before your interview
2. Business, CV, and cover letter writing style
3. CV and cover letter
4. Interview and assessment centre:
5. After your interview
Each of our 5 modules is broken into 2 or 3 lessons with 4-8 videos. Each video is between 3 and 20 minutes and focuses on one specific strategy or tactic that you’ll need to move towards your dream job.
The videos are broken into two types:
2. Question Box
Our instructional videos involve a powerpoint presentation and a voice over explaining what you need to do to learn the topic we teach.
Our Question Box videos involve a two-way conversation between our lead instructor, Craig, and another member of our team.
After each lesson you will have a quiz to solidify your understanding.
Each video lesson comes with supplemental information. This material involves templates, links to web resources, and practice assignments that you want you to work on.
The course will take at least one week to complete because we ask you to think critically about each lesson and to perform activities, such as cover letter writing, interview preparation, and group exercise preparation.
Because each lesson stands alone, you do not have to follow the order of the course. Instead, you can focus on your unique areas of improvement.
Who this course is for:
- Non-native English speakers looking to start a career
- People who struggle with their CV, applications, interviews, or assessment centres
I've been a test prep and admissions tutors since 2003. I have also been a cyber security consultant since 2014. I started as an SAT and GMAT tutor with Princeton Review. Whilst in uni, I tutored students. I then became director of operations for the Princeton Review in Texas and Thailand. After Princeton Review, I was senior course director for Prep Zone Singapore, wherein I developed a system of instruction that guarantees non-native English speakers excellent SAT marks.
All of my courses are affordable.
They are also affordable. Why? Because test preparation is inherently unfair. If you have thousands of dollars, you can hire someone like me to sit in your living room and walk you through the lessons. That will always be true. But the information... the strategies, tactics, and knowledge... those should NOT be super expensive.
These courses teach you all you need and afford you the opportunity to ask questions. Take advantage of these in your training and you will do exceptionally well on your exams.
