Improve your job interview techniques by knowing your accomplishment-based resume backwards and forwards, as most interview questions will be based on this information.
We can help you determine where you need to focus by examining your current job interview approach. We will identify what you do well and which areas need improvement. Then, we will concentrate on the essential elements that contribute most to your interview success.
During the interview, you should present yourself in the best possible way. The most effective approach is to imagine that the employer is buying your skills and knowledge. You must advertise yourself. This is one time when you can talk about all your skills and accomplishments and brag a little, but not exaggerate, because the employer may check your statements.
If your interview skills are weak, you won’t be successful, no matter how many interviews you secure.
We can help you achieve the confidence you need in order to give your best performance. How you appear and sound to the interviewer will determine how they react to you. Some candidates develop an instant rapport with the interviewer and find the process quite relaxed, although this is not the norm.
Cando Career Coaching will help you identify and understand subtle signals from the interviewer(s) that indicate how well you are doing. You will learn what to do to keep the interviewers interested, and how to get the interview back on track, if necessary.
The more you prepare, the higher your confidence level will be. Failing to prepare is just like preparing to fail.
We will coach you on how to respond to the questions that are most often asked by interviewers. These questions reveal certain information about you. Some interviewers try to create stress so they can see how an applicant handles pressure. Learn how to react appropriately to these questions.
Employers are looking for energy, ambition, a good personality, confidence, competence, maturity, professional appearance, and reliability. Can you maintain this image throughout the interview?
Here are some commonly asked questions:
- Tell me about yourself.
- Where do you want to be in five years?
- What do your past supervisors think of you?
- Why should I hire you?
- What have you learned on your own?
- What would you like to know about us?
- How do you work under pressure?
- What do you expect to accomplish here?
- What kind of decisions do you find most difficult to make?
- How do you function as a team player?
You’d better know the answers – there’s no second chance.
The type of job interview you have will depend upon the interviewer and the company. The questions above are very basic; there are over a thousand questions you could be asked during a job interview. It’s a relief to know that there is a common approach to answering questions in a confident and skillful manner that will secure you a job offer.
Interview coaching is what we do extremely well; we work hard with our clients to ensure they can respond to tough questions. We go into great detail in our mock interview sessions, and our goal is to increase your self confidence and assist you in securing the job of your dreams.
