Job interviews can make anyone nervous. After all, one wants to make the best impression one can. But as a school leaver or new graduate, one has an added challenge: little formal job experience. One needs to prove to the employer that one’s studies and university experiences relate to the job one is seeking.
As part of the communication skills segment, individuals should work on eye contact, posture, body language, a firm handshake, and interview skills. The videos cover some ways to help students connect their school or university experiences to an employer’s job requirements and will go over the issues and provide an in-depth analysis of the interviewing process. Students will be expected to have some independent practice with the exercises and quizzes in the accompanying booklet.
