I was able to nail the interview because of the online training course

Just a few years ago I would have considered “nailing” an interview to mean that I did well and I should be expecting a call back from the employer with good news. These days now that I am the one conducting the interview, when I say I “nailed it”, I mean that I was able to conduct the interview with no hiccups and in a professional and confident way. Oh the difference a few yeas can make in your professional development.

My story probably goes much the same way that many people’s does in my position. You get hired on at a company and work your way up and before you know it, they value your opinion enough that you are making hiring calls. If this sounds overwhelming to you I have a piece of advice: Should you ever get to that point with your company you should be in contact with Select International and ask about their online interview training. This course is taken online at your home or office and over the span of just a few hours you can greatly improve your ability and techniques used during an interview. You’ll focus on everything from how to dress, how to sit, posture, solid confident hand shakes, what questions to ask and how to avoid stalling out during the question asking process. Before you know it you will sound and act like a pro during job interviews.

You might also want to screen the applicants beforehand by using Select International’s employee assessment tests. These are personality tests that can ensure you know the true nature of each applicant.

I’m almost done with my interview training

Last month my boss came into my office and asked me if I would be interested in sitting in on a few interviews next quarter to see how things are done around here. Of course I say yes enthusiastically and now I am doing my best to prepare for that day. I  know that I won’t be the one conducting an interview but I am assuming my boss doesn’t just want me to be there so the chairs won’t fly away. He may be expecting my input in some way or another and that can be anything from asking meaningful questions to reviewing the resume itself. I have decided to prepare my contacting Select International and utilizing their online interview training tools. These tools are so cool and unique I wish I had learned about them earlier so I could have sat in on interviews long ago. I am nearly finished with them now and I can say they have already helped to boost my confidence and keep me in the right frame of mind. I think my boss will be impressed at how confident and prepared I am to conduct an interview with the applicants.

Maybe I should tell the bosses about Select International and their resources they offer to clients. I believe we could make great use of their employee assessment tests to help us narrow down the field a little and to get more qualified applicants coming in for interviews. Maybe next time I am in a meeting with them I can bring it up to see if we can get the whole company using Select International.
