Perfecting your interview preparation

In the first week, you’ll receive handy hints to get you thinking about yourself and the recruiter in more depth, and how to anticipate the topics you might be asked about at an interview.

You’ll learn how to carry out research beforehand, so you feel fully prepared when you meet the interviewer. We’ll also discuss how to deal with nerves, so you can stay calm and confident at interviews.


Answering interview questions successfully

We’ll look at the different types of questions interviewers might ask, and give you strategies to deal with them, along with a chance to practise some answers.

Making a good first impression is also important, so we’ll discuss what to wear and how to use your voice in a way that makes you appear confident and capable.


Mastering video and phone interviews

Technology means interviews often take place by phone or video. In the final week, we’ll look at top tips for handling interviews when you and the selector aren’t in the same room at the same time.

You’ll also learn how to master group interviews and exercises, from presentations to role play. There can be more to interviews than answering questions, and you’ll end the course feeling able to tackle all the different potential scenarios.
