Interview Skills Coaching

What will happen at an interview?

When you are chosen for an interview, there are many types of questions that you will face on the day and need to be prepared for. Organisations that require you to address selection criteria or capabilities as part of their application process will also base the questions they ask at the interview on these as well. Most likely, you will be asked a range of questions to demonstrate your skills and abilities in relation to the criteria or capabilities. These could include behavioural-based questions and hypothetical scenario questions. There is also the chance that you may be asked to undertake exercises such as a work sample test or to prepare a presentation for the selection panel. Often the purpose of the interview is to substantiate and build on the responses that you gave in your written application.

What does the interview skills training cover?

Here is a summary of what is covered in Select Resumes interview skills coaching:

  • What hiring managers and recruiters are looking for from candidates
  • The types of questions you may be asked
  • Confidence and nerve control techniques
  • How to make a great first impression
  • Structuring confident answers
  • Dealing with panel interviews
  • Rapport building techniques
  • Interview do’s and don’ts

What are the benefits of interview skills coaching?

Just as you cannot learn how to swim by reading about it, you cannot learn how to improve your interview technique by reading about it either. One-on-one interview skills coaching teaches you what you need to know to get the job you want. The key benefit of Select Resumes interview skills coaching is improved verbal communication ability.

Overall, you will gain increased self-confidence. Interview skills coaching will continue to deliver benefits throughout your career, in meetings, presentations, negotiations and general business communication.

Interview Answer Structures

Even the easiest of interview questions can bring you unstuck if you do not have a good method or structure to answer the interview questions. During our interview skills consultation, we are not going to ‘give you all the answers’. Instead, we teach you a structured method for you to develop your own best answers. This method also allows you to offer a great answer to even the toughest and unexpected questions. Call Select Resumes today for more information about our superior interview skills techniques and coaching.

Just wanted to let you know that I was successful in getting a interview and they have now gone to my referee – no outcome has been decided as yet – but I was happy with getting this far.
Thanks again for your help.

I just wanted you to know that thanks to your amazing interview coaching, I got the job with the Police!
I felt very prepared and actually quite relaxed for the interview. I used the skills and tips you gave me and put them into practice. This was especially helpful to me after the other interview I had before the Police, that I totally bombed as I had mentioned. This little ‘failure’ really knocked my confidence. But I went in with a fresh attitude and was actually even looking forward to the experience! (who looks forward to job interviews??).
When I left the interview I felt so positive and happy that I had done well. I thought, well even if I didn’t get the job I was still happy with my performance and was sure this time I had given it my best shot.
So thank you once again. Your coaching works!!

I found the coaching extremely valuable

I would like you to pass on my feedback to the most appropriate person.
I found the interview coaching with Michael extremely valuable. He gave
some really great advice in a positive and sensitive way. He went beyond
simply what the correct answer to a question might be to what impression
you may give through non-verbal communication. He gave me a lot to
think about and reminded me of the importance of an interview. Thanks
