About the course:

The goal of this course is to help you get a job offer for your dream job. To get great offers you have to ace the interview, so this course shows you how to do that. More than just covering interview etiquette, the course will explain what REALLY matters in interviews from my perspective, and I've been involved in many, many interviews on both sides of the table. The course can help you in your career development so you are more prepared for all interview situations and more likely to get your dream job offer from the interview.

We will go through some sample interview questions, but the goal of this course is not to provide possible answers for potential interview questions! Instead it is about giving you the tools you need to answer any question you're asked, and make a strong impression regardless of whether you practiced 200 sample questions or not.

I want this course to help you advance and succeed in your career so if you don't find it valuable you can get a full refund for the first 30 days

.

  • Students looking for internships
  • Students looking for full-time roles
  • MBA students
  • People interested in Career Development
  • Working professionals thinking about a new role or a new company
  • Anyone that would like to learn more about interviewing

.

Course structure:

  1. Introduction and Overview
  2. Interview Basics: Types of, Reasons for, Formats, Types of Questions
  3. Interview Preparation
  4. Interview Mastery
  5. Interview Checklists: Recap and Handout
  6. Interview Question: Examples worked out
  7. Next Steps: Landing Your Dream Job & Being Successful

.

About me:

I sure don't have everything figured out, but I've had a lot of experience being interviewed, interviewing others, and helping other folks be successful in their interviews. There is a lot of information out there on how to ace your interview. But in my experience much of it is either very generic (i.e. have a good handshake), or very specific (i.e. an example answer to one possible interview question). The perspective I will share with you is 100% my own and it is based solely on my experience. Everything I give you comes from real-life:

  • What has helped me get a lot of great offers
  • What I've seen help other people land fantastic jobs
  • The mistakes I've seen people make that I've been interviewing

.

I'm confident it will help you as well, so why not Take This Course today and start knocking your interviews out of the park before somebody else gets that job offer!

04:16

Welcome to the course!

In this introductory lecture I will go over who the course is for, why it is such an important topic, and who I am.

02:30

Overview of the course outline and how to get the most from the lectures

02:48

Short overview of how to use and navigate the Udemy course platform.

**For first-time Udemy users.

Section 2: Interview Basics
02:30

Discussion of the different types of interviews you may encounter

Goal: inform you of what to expect so you aren't unprepared or caught off guard

02:38

Why the different types of interviews are used, and what the goal of them is

Goal: Show you what the goal of the interview is from the company's perspective so you will know what you need to do to stand out

03:43

Goal: Show you where your focus needs to be during Fit interviews

03:46

Overview of the different categories of Fit/Behavioral questions you might encounter

Goal: Prepare you for the different types of questions that you will need to answer during interviews

**A more comprehensive list of specific questions is given in a later lecture

06:01

All about the basics of Case Interviews, and how they differ from normal Fit Interviews

Goal: Give you an idea of what case interviews are, what the goal of them is from the company perspective, and when you might encounter them

01:10

Conclusion of our discussion on Case Interviews

** Because Case Interviews are more specialized and much less common we won't discuss them anymore after this lecture. This course is primarily about the fit/behavioral interviews that you will encounter in nearly every hiring process.

Section 3: Interviewing Guidelines
03:51

An overview of Fit/Behavioral interviews

Goal: Show you where your focus needs to be during these interviews

Interview Preparation
09:38
02:45

Short demonstration of the LinkedIn Alumni Tool and how to use it.

This tool is very useful for you if you're trying to network and learn more about a company that you hope to work for.

02:09

All about the importance of having a purpose for yourself, and setting goals to get there

Goal: Understand why it is important to at least have short-term plans and backups

Goal: Learn the simple things that can make a big first impression, and show how important it really is

04:00

About the critical need to have a relevant story to tell and tell it well

Goal: Be able to craft your story and tell it naturally during the interview

02:23

This is NOT about how to answer specific questions - It IS about being a good communicator so you don't make the common mistakes that will be very costly to you during the interview

Goal: Communicate during the interview with professionalism and respect that will set you apart from the majority of your peers

01:33

A recap of this section of the course that ties together the main concepts

Goal: Remind you that although many of the points discussed in this course seem to be common sense, they really are NOT that common, and so it's the best way to distinguish yourself from your peers and get a job offer.

Section 4: Checklists: A Summary That You Can Use
05:53

Checklist of 10 things you can do BEFORE the interview to prepare yourself for success

**There is a handout with this checklist in the RESOURCES tab for this lecture so you can print the list off or view it from your mobile device

3 pages

In case you missed this document in the Resources section of the last two lectures, here it is again.

It might be helpful to keep a copy of this on your computer or phone for easy reference!

4 pages

I recently wrote a post for my Blog that went in depth a bit more on the Top 10 Checklist for During the Interview. You can download it here.

Section 5: Examples
04:31

One example of a very simple answer to a possible behavioral question that is answered using a STAR format and a basic example from a class project.


Actual work experience is better, but I've used a class example to show you that you can answer these questions easily even if you don't have much work experience.

04:38

Another example of a very simple answer to a possible behavioral question that is answered using a STAR format and a basic example from a class project.

Actual work experience is better, but again I've used a class example to show you that you can answer these questions easily even if you don't have much work experience.

04:51

An example of how to work out a simple guesstimation or brainteaser question. We don't really cover these much in this course, but wanted you to have an idea of what this sort of question looks like, and how to approach solving it.

Showing/telling HOW you are going about solving the problem, and clearly stating your assumptions is more important than having the exact right numerical solution.

This shows one reason it is always important to take a pen and paper with you to the interview. It would be hard for the interviewer to follow you (and for you to keep track of your thoughts) if you tried to do this verbally.

Section 6: Sample Questions
8 pages

Eight pages of sample interview questions that you might encounter. Although the list is not comprehensive, it will help you get an idea of what sort of questions you will be asked.


I don't really think you have to practice all of these (of course that is up to you) but I do recommend trying to answer any that seem especially difficult for you.

For most cases, following a logical approach to answering (like STAR) will serve you well. See the lectures in the previous section for examples.
