Have you had a job interview where you knew your chances were floating away as fast as an America's Cup sailboat and you realized you didnâ€™t know what to do about it? Did you feel under-prepared, hesitant, or doubtful, just as you knew it was time to hit a homerun and win the job? Or are you a career development professional, who has already recognized the inadequate career education and the lack of career learning resources at your organization?
The majority career advisors would agree that your self-image and the job-interview performance are two most important characteristics for the successful job-hunt and they are connected just like Times Square and Billboard Advertising. With â€˜Mastering the Job Interviewâ€™ we are giving you the exclusive opportunity to look at the other likely job-candidates and compare yourself to them. The documentary features authentic interviews with graduate students from five universities â€“ Harvard Business School, Babson College, Bentley College, Brandeis University and Suffolk University. In between the questions and answers, comments and tips from career experts provide further insight into the job-interview process.
While â€˜Mastering the Job Interviewâ€™ is designed as a tool for the Career Counselor it is also very helpful for anyone who is in a job-hunt mode. Its â€˜rawâ€™, documentary, non-Hollywood format allows you to focus on the Professional Development side of the material. As demonstrated in many of the Boston area Career Offices, it provides the Career Counselor with a wealth of instances of successful job-interview behaviors, a range of tactics and styles for answering tough questions, as well as with examples of not so successful conduct.
Here are some of the reasons why â€˜Mastering the Job Interviewâ€™ is better than any other job interview preparation item on the market:
Â· It provides you the rare opportunity to observe the atmosphere of the job interview from the safety of the school environment or your home.
Â· You would benefit from the exclusive insights into â€˜What is a recruiter really looking to learn about you, by asking a particular question?â€™
Â· It vividly displays specific examples of "who the competition for your desired job-offer is", and how they interview. â€˜Mastering the Job Interviewâ€™ is a superior career tool because it presents real-life jobseekers, giving their best.
Â· Further â€“ you can achieve a better career and job-interview understanding and awareness through the comments, tips and advice of career experts like Bill Coleman, Senior VP at Salary.com and Dave Fetherston, Director of the Babson MBA Career Development Center.
Â· Through observing particular behaviors, you will learn how to handle questions you are not prepared for, or what is important and what is not important to discuss in regards to prior work experience.
Â· In comparing yourself to the job-hunters in the DVD you will gain the confidence you need to perform your best at your job-interview and get the job you desire.
