Every year, thousands of fresh graduates get frustrated searching for a job. Many graduates, while well versed in their own subjects, may not even get their first foot in the door when it comes to job hunting because of their lack of preparedness. Some graduates assume that appearing for an interview doesn’t require any preparation and underestimate its importance, consequently failing to make an impression on the employer.
The main objective of the Interview Skills module is to equip students, graduates and job seekers with knowledge and techniques to effectively tackle the interview process, and leave a positive impression with your prospective employer by reinforcing your strength, experience, and appropriateness for the job in question.
The Interview Skills module aims at preparing you to apply for a job and face interview. The module guides you about ways to highlight your achievements and contributions to prove your value-added worth to prospective employers. First, you will learn about the principles of competency-based management and the challenges of selection. Then, you will focus on preparing for an interview. You will examine the different stages of the interview: the opening, the exchange of information, the closing, and the follow-up. Finally, you will look at ways to present yourself professionally through dress code and behavior.
