Description

Graduate job interviews are the gateway to a successful life and career. But each year, 1000s of graduates like YOU are totally underprepared for this critical step.

It's a competitive battleground, with an average of THIRTY NINE applicants per graduate role. So much so that 1 in 5 graduates are currently unemployed more than six months after university.

Learn how to be successful in your job interviews – and get your career off to a flying start.

Our course gives you the complete guide to nailing your graduate job interviews.

It's taught by Ed Thompson, a recruiter who has conducted over TWO HUNDRED job interviews, as well as managing corporate internship and apprenticeship programs.

With this inside knowledge you'll be at a HUGE advantage when it comes to impressing employers and getting the job you want!

After taking the course you will:

  • be confident, instead of nervous, about your job interviews
  • know what employers want, and be able to deliver this with ease
  • start finding that employers want YOU, not just the other way round

Together, we'll cover the complete job interview process.

In our course, you'll find out how to become a superstar graduate interviewee.

First we'll look at the crucial steps before your interviews – how to set the odds massively in your favor before you even get to the interview stage.

Then we'll go deep on the interview itself, giving you examples and tools that YOU can use to make a great impression and get that dream job.

Lastly, we'll look at what to do after your interviews, including when and how to follow up with an employer.

Start learning now – in under two hours you'll turn yourself into a confident, effective, and highly professional interviewee.
