Description

The question you need to answer is simple: "Would it be valuable to learn how the brain works and use that knowledge to help get a job?" That is the entire focus of this course.

Let's assume you have the right qualifications to get a certain job. If you are out there interviewing, but keep getting rejection letters and can't figure out why - then this course might have the answers you are looking for. Unfortunately, not every job goes to the most qualified person. Some companies are hiring based on "culture" - do they believe you will "fit" in. 

"The truth is that during the interview selection process (who they are choosing to interview) and the interview itself, you are being judged."

If the person looking at your resume or interviewing you decides they don't like what you wrote or how you said something then it is quite possible that you will NOT get the job. It doesn't matter if they are correct in their judgment of you, they're the ones who interacted with you and have the most knowledgeable to sum up your qualifications.

There are other elements that can make or break your hiring opportunity:

  1. If you consciously or subconsciously make the person who is in charge of hiring feel uncomfortable, you're probably not getting that job. Most of the time job candidates don't even realize they are doing this.
  2. Your chances increase immensely if the interviewer likes you and the opposite is also true. 

Sometimes we don't realize how we are affecting/influencing an interaction. If we don't know what we are doing wrong, how can we fix it? This course is designed to overcome both of those challenges. 

Who is the target audience?
  • People who are unemployed.
  • Students getting ready to enter the job market.
  • Someone who is currently working, but is looking to get a new job.
