  • Ideally you will have a clear idea of where you want to develop your career - If you don't know where you are going, any road will take you there ....
  • You should have a top notch resume. If you don't have one, please have a look at the first course in this series, "Prepare for your next job - How to write a cracking resume!"

"JobPrep - Prepare for your next job" is a four part series tackling the more confrontational parts of your career - The Resume, The Interview, The Pay Rise and The Promotion.

This is the second course in the JobPrep Series - How to ACE the Interview.

Having been in recruitment for over 15 years and completed over 8,000 interviews it constantly amazes me how people just turn up for job interviews with little, if any, preparation and how they don't realize that they can massively improve their chances of being successful if they just understood the process and how to get ready for it. On so many occasions I have seen the well prepared 'B' Grade Candidate beat the unprepared 'A' Grade Candidate.

How to ACE the Interview comprises 15 short videos that break down the process, how to prepare, what goes wrong, and what to do to maximize your chance of getting the job. I will take about 2 hours to complete and will give you a full understanding of the pit falls and simple things that you can do to get ahead of the competition.

For most people, going to a job interview is not something that they do often so this course will give you everything you need to make sure that you put your best foot forward!

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is specifically for people who have to attend a face to face interview and are unsure or nervous about what the process involves.
  • It is for people who really want a new job or to join a great company and want to maximise their chances of being successful.
  • It doesn't matter if you are applying for your first job or to be the General Manager - How to ACE the Interview addresses everything you need to do to guarantee success.

If you know what is going to go wrong then you can solve the problem before it happens. The three main reasons that your interview won't go well are that:

  • You are too nervous and don't act like yourself
  • You can't articulate yourself.
  • You can't match what they want to what you've got.
