Monday 1st Mar – Webinar: Preparing for Interview
March 1 @ 7:00 pm - March 8 @ 9:30 pm
Fiona will be speaking on how to prepare for your interview ahead of time. Don’t go in unprepared – you can make such a difference to the outcome by ensuring you aren’t fazed by anything that gets thrown at you on the day. Fiona can help with that and this is the event where you can do it.
Preparation starts well in advance: from researching the organisation to dry cleaning your suit, or preparing ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ to doing a dummy run of the journey ahead of the actual day.
The devil is most definitely in the detail!
It is so easy to underestimate the level of detail which we encourage our members to focus on to ensure they appear presentable and equipped with well practised STAR answers. This will result in a concise, impactful and crisp delivery. Many people are unsuccessful in securing a position due to elements within their control. Admittedly, 99% of candidates will be competing against other candidates during the process, so this isn’t necessarily something which you can influence.
However, small things can make a big difference and could give you the edge over your rivals, e.g. it is always good to follow up your meeting with a thank you – in the current climate that could be a text, email or even a good old traditional letter – your choice to gauge as you see fit.
We look forward to seeing you on Monday evening.
