Interview Skills

 

Employability Course: Interview Skills (Get Set For Your Job Interview)-OUes003 

Introduction:

Job interviews can make anyone nervous. After all, one wants to make the best possible 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 booklets.
 

Objectives:

To help students understand the importance of body language and appreciate its social implications and understand that appropriate body language can make a huge difference in the connection one makes when one interacts with others.
