About our Interview Skills training
Are you applying for a promotion or a new role in the public sector? Do you want some advice and guidance on writing the competency questions that are part of the application form? Do you want some input on writing your CV? Do you want some help in preparing for the interview? If so, you will be interested in these coaching sessions, where an experienced public sector interviewer and coach will work with you to improve your application form and help you prepare for the interview.
Likewise, if you want help completing your application form or CV, the coach will guide you on what will work on paper, what the interviewers will be looking for when reviewing your application form and in particular what is being assessed if there is a shortlisting process. You might have a draft application form or CV that you want the coach to work with you on during the coaching session so that you can improve the application you submit. You might want some advice and guidance on writing the competency questions that are part of the application form, to ensure you are highlighting your relevant previous experience as it relates to the role and that you make it through the shortlisting process.
Alternatively, you might want to focus on the interview itself. The coach will help you prepare for interview, working through your main "selling points" and making sure this comes through clearly in the answers to the interview questions. She will work through interview questions and answers and make sure you are clearly able to answer them and to articulate your fit for the role advertised. If a presentation is required as part of the interview process, she can work with you to clarify what you think the interview board are looking for and then work through the presentation approach and content and rehearse the presentation, including anticipating questions that might be asked.
Our Interview Skills training is offered on a one-to-one basis, or on open training days, where a small group will attend the course at the same time.
