But they are a necessary evil as we say. Luckily, I know how to make it as easy and pain-free as possible – even if English is your second language! The number one thing to remember is that in a job interview you are technically “marketing” yourself to the employer. So make sure to present yourself – and your English skills – in the most effective way by preparing for the interview with an experienced coach. When preparing for a job interview with me, we go through each step of the process, giving you the tools you need to truly market yourself during the interview instead of just reciting memorized information about yourself. The key is to look good, sound good, and most importantly feel good about what you are saying to the interviewer. So how do we do it?
Prepare, practice, present!
- PREPARE! Create intelligent responses to current business questions based on YOUR real life experiences. The more you contribute to this process, the better your responses will be. Click the link to learn more!
- PRACTICE! Master the pronunciation and cadence of these responses in order to ensure being understood. Having a good, clear accent can make all the difference during your interview.
- PRESENT! Build confident response time and natural fluency through no-script “Mock Interviews”. Responses that you believe in – not just memorized robot words!
PLUS!!! When you prepare with me, you will have recordings of every session, allowing you to prepare as much as you like or need!! Check out the video below to hear more about my Job Interview Program!
Job Interviews in English
Here is a little bit about how I can help you succeed in your next job interview. I help native speakers of English, as well as 2nd-language students, in advancing their careers, or working abroad.
Personally, I have had many jobs in my life. I am thirty years old and I started with small jobs like at a “pizza place” when I was sixteen and so I’ve had many different positions and I’ve had many different job interviews. And so, with that said, I know exactly what questions are being asked and what answers are most appropriate. When you have a job interview class with me we are able to go from the beginning of the interview to the end of the interview, flawlessly.
My classes, based on job interviews, begin with breaking the ice or the introductions of when you arrive to an interview. We, then, get down to the more crucial and hard questions like – Tell me about your previous job responsibilities – Tell me about your current job responsibilities. The hardest questions, even for native English speakers, are – Tell me about your strengths, and even worse, – Tell me about your weaknesses. These are very common questions and are very easily responded to when given the correct guidance.
I have made silly mistakes in interviews and I’ve learned from them – excuse me – and I know that now I never make these little mistakes. I have helped many of my students get new jobs or find work abroad. For example, I have a Russian student – a male – who was studying with me last year and he is now in Thailand after living in Turkey for six months. He is definitely an inspiration to my job interview program. I really enjoy having these classes because it’s not only good professional vocabulary for every student to learn, but it is useful for everyday life in many ways.
One of the best parts of my job interview lessons is that we end with what we call “mock interviews”. By “mock” I mean: fake, false, not real. And so, on our last class of the “job interview lessons” I will be the interviewer and you will be the interviewee and I will give you three consecutive interviews – and an Mp3 recording of those interviews – so that you can listen to them and practice at your home, at your convenience. You will also receive a document with all of your answers transcribed, so that while you’re listening to yourself you can read exactly what YOU, and I, came up with. So, I really look forward to hearing from you soon, so that we can discuss your future job interview. Take care.
