Overview: Questions

If you're not ready to answer several key questions using a structured approach to ensure completeness, you're not ready to begin the interview process.

A candidate may believe the interview is simply an opportunity to meet with the employer, talk about their resume and answer a few questions about their experience. While this is partly true, there is much more that job seekers must understand in order to be successful. Some candidates believe that simply being the “most qualified” applicant will guarantee a job offer. However, an employer will typically invite many qualified applicants to interview for a position. Among a pool of qualified people interviewing, you need to stand out based on your qualifications and overall compatibility.

Resumes are more objective and get you into the interview by highlighting qualifications
Interviews are more subjective and determine which candidate gets the job offer by demonstrating the ability to successfully apply qualifications and overall compatibility

Your goal during the interview process is simple – get the job offer by demonstrating your ability to successfully apply your qualifications and your overall compatibility with the position, organization, and people. A critical aspect of demonstrating these abilities is the way you respond to interview questions. To ensure success, we’ll first teach you a structured process to answer interview questions. Next, we’ll discuss how to apply this technique using your own unique qualifications. If you're not ready to answer the key questions using a structured method, you're not ready to send resumes and begin the interview process.

The workshop prepares you for the interview by providing a structured approach to answering questions which is then customized using your unique qualifications. This ensures that each of your answers addresses the necessary elements. This is a key part of our workshop and critical to your success.
