Interview Training - The Science Of Successful Interviewing

Jun 1, 2008
How many times have you dreamed of the perfect job?

You have the qualifications! You have the experience!

So why do you keep falling at the final hurdle?

Whether it is a high-ranking corporate individual, a school leaver, a new graduate, a returnee to work, all have one thing in common, it is the 'Interview' which is the gate to their dreams.

Fact: People who train for interviews have a much better chance to land the job they really want.

So why would you miss the chance to earn as much as possible by not taking interview training? Prepare to impress. Your prospective employer wants confident, engaging, enthusiastic people - could that be you?

With the right interview skills, you might find a job that's closer to home and leaves you feeling great, because you've finally got a job you love.

There are many job interview consultants who will check your understanding of the simpler rules, what you can do for you, and work with you to internalize the more personally demanding ones and then give you what they can do for you.

To help you prepare thoroughly for an interview and increase your chance of getting the job we have listed below some important tips that we feel will help you.

* Research the company.
* Dress appropriately.
* Know where you are going and how long it will take you.
* Remember your interviewer's names and titles.
* Relax and be yourself.
* Ask relevant questions.
* Prepare for questions you will likely be asked and be honest in your responses.
* Don't speak negatively of your present or former employers.
* Let the interviewer bring up salary first.

Practice, Practice, Practice. Mock interviews with an interview coach will help you improve your weaknesses and deliver a more successful interview.

Remember that an interview is your opportunity to shine! Nervousness is normal, so prepare for it in order to convey a calm appearance. Use the interview process as chance to show prospective employers that you are reliable, enthusiastic, confident, motivated, and energetic. The interview is also your opportunity to expose your communication skills, abilities to solve problems, and exhibit strong interpersonal skills.
Interviewing for your first job?

A key component to conducting a successful interview is feeling confident about the way you come across at interview. Various job interview training professionals have helped hundreds of graduates present themselves accurately and confidently at interview.

A one-to-one training program consists of:

* A live interview with you where honest constructive feedback is provided on your performance.
* A psychometric personality test to help you understand your personal style and professional strengths and how to present them at interview.
* An easily remembered interview model to ensure you make the right impression and are prepared to answer those simple and nerve-wracking questions with confidence.

When you walk out the door of an interview training professional you will be able to:

* Attend any interview with confidence.
* Present your unique competencies, skills and abilities.
* Learn to interview your interviewer.
* Leave any interview armed with enough information to make an informed decision on your future.

So good luck and great success with your job interviews!
