Interview Skills - Sydney Course

We offer training in face to face and/or online learning formats.

  • Please see scheduled class for delivery format.
  • Online classes delivered via livestream video over Zoom.

To get a job, you will most probably have to go through a job interview at some stage. This workshop will guide you on how to prepare for and conduct an interview in a manner that improves your chances of securing your desired job.

We will cover the basic principles that apply to every job interview. You will learn how to prepare for an interview by researching the company and knowing the key questions to ask about the job. Then you will learn the skills required for the interview itself, how to behave and respond to questions and how to finish the interview strong. Finally, we will address some of the practical issues, such as what to wear, what to bring and how to follow up after the interview.

This is a practical workshop with plenty of opportunity for discussion, particularly about lessons from past experiences. You can bring a job advertisement that you are applying for to gain personalised tips for your interview.

Each student will walk away with greater confidence in their ability to present themselves in a positive and professional manner.
