Description: Ever botch an interview? There are so many places where it could go wrong. In this course, you’ll learn how to make a positive, lasting impression on employers. In particular, you’ll learn how to research potential employers, answer the most commonly-asked questions, dress to bolster your credibility, and approach different interview venues like telephone, group, and video. In addition, students will also hear directly from employers on what differentiates those candidates who land jobs – and those who get a letter. The content is delivered through videos and readings, which are reinforced through exercises and quizzes. At the end of the course, students will compile a portfolio that reflects their best work.
